Welcome to the Lucky Lamb Publications web presence!

Major changes are in the works. Time goes on and people, places, and things, pass out of our lives, and other people places, and things pass into our lives. This is a time for new beginnings. This is a time to broom away the old and obsolete, banish yesterday's influences and doings to the trash heap, and place a heavy emphasis on what is to come.  


NEW BOOK ALERT !!

And in the End - 2034

Is it later than you think?  This extensive epic apocalyptic thriller set in 2034 asks of you that very question. And this - what if they were right? Those polite but annoying door-knockers, who always seem to come 'round on a Saturday morning while the bacon is frying and cartoons emanate from the TV, showing up in suits and skirts on a casual day, offering up some so-called good news... 

Is it God or is it Science? It is nature or is it the universal higher power that goes by many different names based on many different cultures? Is it here and now, or is it there and then; in an alternate reality, a parallel world?

Some call it the Judgement Day. Some call it Armageddon. Some call it the Apocalypse. Some simply call it the end of the world... Some blame God, some blame His opposite number. Some blame mankind. Some blame fate. Some may call it... a necessary thinning of the herd. Some say it will be global nuclear war. Some say it will be a global disease, a killer virus without a remedy. Some say it will be a string of global natural disasters, floods, fires, storms, earthquakes and the like - such as what seem to be occurring through the summer and fall of 2017.

Whatever you call it, and whatever the cause, it's coming. The only real question is... when?



First, there was Stephen King's The Stand...

Then, there was Robert McCammon's Swan Song...

Next, there is Larry S Gray's And in the End - 2034


Coming in 2019 (the book, not the end...), And in the End - 2034
will be available in both physical and digital formats.
Read it - before it's too late!

NEW BOOK ALERT #2 

 The Restless Spirit of Palm Castle

is now available on Kindle

and will be available in Paperback in late 2017! 

    http://amazon.com/dp/B00P8JHI8U  

Download it now on Kindle!

Thriller and horror sage Larry S. Gray tries his hand at a new (to him) genre, that of “Florida Weird.” Masters of this genre, such as Tim Dorsey and Carl Hiassen, have had an impact on Gray during his time spent in Florida, and have inspired him to join in the fun... The result is The Restless Spirit of Palm Castle, a rollicking tale amusing and weird, irreverent and gross, but most of all, just plain funny.


The Restless Spirit of Palm Castle

Fun, frolic and craziness in a Florida accounting office and at the camel-piss bar down the street.

Palm Castle is home to a place where working and drinking afterward takes on a whole new meaning.

This is the story of eccentricity and strange doings in the office of an accounting/tax preparation firm in central Florida. And even stranger doings in the bar down the street… Say goodbye to the stereotypical boring, stuffed-shirted, dull, lackluster folks who populate your average, everyday accounting office. Now it’s time to meet the zany, madcap, wacky folks who run H. B. Abercorn Tax and Accounting Associates of Palm Castle, Florida.

The bar down the street, the Blue Midget Taproom, where all kinds of ungodliness gets mixed in with the liquor, beer and wine. From neighborhood bums who drink themselves into a stupor, to otherworldly beings named Zarephat and Skinjob, to a bartender named Earl who has seen it all and then some, to everyday folk just after a quick beer, this is a place to check out. Especially on Saturday nights…with live music happening in the front, and a popular but politically incorrect sport now banned in Florida going on in the back.

NEW BOOK ALERT # 3 !!


NOW AVAILABLE ON KINDLE, a great book on the subject of growing up with bullying, that includes a great deal of rock & roll history, facts, and anecdotes which blend in amazingly with the flow of the story.

Entitled Lanning - Before and Beyond, this book is an amazing story of a boy and his tumultuous early years, and how far some kids can take cruelty and bullying. Also about what happens when he starts ruminating about it later in life - it is strange, it is scary, and it is sad. The latest offering from our own Trent Redman, and his first work of fiction, this one will definitely strike a nerve. Don't miss it.

Lanning - Before and Beyond


http://amazon.com/dp/B01N00WSQG   -  Kindle version


A fifty-something fellow decides it’s time to unravel the mystery of life, and believes that digging deep into his tumultuous past will help him do that. He then decides that the best way to relive the interesting and sometimes unsavory past is to write his memoirs. He comes up with a unique way to bring all his old and sometimes painful memories to the fore, and sets out on a journey to make it happen. Alone he takes to the highway to find himself, and he begins to find much more than he can explain…   From an eclectic iconic city on the coast of New Jersey to the flat stretch of the Florida Keys, Harlan Grady becomes a magnet for the unexplainable. And what he finds is this – a young boy long forgotten along with a childhood long escaped from. He finds that a mental regression into a past life can be much more real than ever thought possible. He regresses into his childhood, where he dealt with much bullying and religious repression; he mentally travels back in time and loses himself in his past. Long-repressed memories rise up and threaten his sanity as he comes to realize that, yes, one can definitely go back, but… why would one want to? By the time he arrives in Key West, ten days late, he knows firsthand just how far some kids can take cruelty and bullying, and what happens when one tries calling up the past later in life.  And once that door is open, is it even possible to shut it again? We’ll find out… 

Part psych-thriller, part sci-fi, part memoir, this book will get you wondering...

Arrived...              

                    Mason Baker's epic psych thriller  -     ON THE EDGE

                                                                                                                     ... a tale of an ongoing struggle in one man’s mind.

The twisted mental journey of a troubled but intelligent and resourceful fellow. He is a survivor and a loser, he is defeatist and a winner, he is at once extremely intelligent and amazingly stupid.  He is genius, he is insane, he is idiot, he is noble.  He is all over the place and at the same time totally contained in his own little capsule. You will read of joy, despair, love and hate, depression and regression. You will see anger, love, peace, turmoil, confusion and distraction. You will see mayhem and chaos, and structure and solidity. Above all, though, throughout, you will see hope. Hope often crushed and blotted and trashed, but hope that always shines through.

Unable to afford therapy, he does the next best thing. Sits down at his laptop and let’s his troubled mind vent to the printed page. No appointments, but whenever the need is great, the pseudo-couch is open for business and the keyboard is his doctor. No filters, no holding back, this to him is like a vomitous purge. This is a one-way conversation with an imaginary psychiatrist, as he struggles to get it all out, figure it all out, put it all together and, hopefully, fix it. Make it all work. A psychological thriller of high intensity!

Update: Due to the enormous length of On the Edge and my reluctance to cut too much from the main story, On the Edge will instead be released as a trilogy. Three separate volumes of mental mayhem. The wait for the first part is diminishing, so prepare for an experience!

On the Edge, Volume I, is now available for upcomimg summer reading, grab it now!

A dark and disturbing tale of insanity, poverty and hope...

Built on the concept of parallel worlds, On the Edge is a tale of a fellow facing multiple incredibly complex life situations. Using the power of belief and hope, he discovers a way to quantum jump between two existences. He does so to escape insanity in one world and to escape poverty in the other. He then takes it to a higher level. Follow him as he copes, and roll with him when he doesn't...

If you are not grateful for everything you have, you will be after reading On the Edge.

If you think you have much to complain about, you might change your tune after reading On the Edge.

If you think life is unfair, On the Edge will remind you that is absolutely correct.

A combustible mix of horror, psychological thriller, and science fiction, On the Edge will make you look at yourself, your family, and your surroundings, in an entirely different light.

It's not mushy, it's not sappy, it's not romantic, it does not offer the proverbial happy ending. It is harsh and forceful, frightening and volatile. It will make you think twice about things.

  A story about fun and good times, and about a place that is special to millions of people. Life has been severely disrupted here recently, and the author hopes that this book will serve as a reminder that, even in the face of disaster, our memories are wonderful things to have.
  So this little book is all about fun, good times, parties and great places to be. Sprinkled in among the anecdotes are some true statistics and some reference to the popular music as it related to the times when these events took place. Most of what you are about to read here happened in the late ‘70s and early ‘80s, though it does follow through straight to the present day. So sit back and relax, and have a good laugh, or maybe a good shake of the head. Take a ride with me down the shore; walk the boards, stroll the beach, ride the rides and revel in the music of the times, while I share some truly fun experiences with you.

In a Provincetown bar, things are not what they seem. Or are they exactly what they seem? Time appears to have stopped in this bar, a long while ago, while outside time marches on. A psychological thriller that considers the fabric of time to be bent and twisted in this particular place; and that time can be flexible, a mental concept of startling proportions.

Who is Trent Redman?

Trent Redman is the philosophizing mental stimulus behind the interesting tales and adventures produced here. He loves to expostulate on religion, politics, music, his homeland, and all things strange but true. Think Stu Redman and Trent Reznor… more on that later.

Trent was born on October 22, 1975 in Trenton NJ. He graduated from Ireland Private School in 1993, and was from graduated Princeton in 1997. He began working at Lucky Lamb Publications in 2003, ghostwriting the tales that would ultimately turn into the books that Lucky Lamb would eventually publish.

He is interested in women, he leans to the right politically, and he drinks egg nog year-round from a mug that proclaims “Man Created God."

He likes Nine Inch Nails and Stephen King's The Stand. He likes the Robert DeNiro movie City by the Sea, filmed in 2000 in his hometown of Asbury Park. He likes House and The Sopranos, but he does not like Jersey Shore. He believes that Dr. House should have guest-starred in a few episodes of The Sopranos, and vice versa. He listens to Bruce Springsteen and Jon Bon Jovi and Frank Sinatra, a trio he considers music's high holy trinity.

He thinks New Jersey should split into two full and complete states. However, not into North Jersey and South Jersey, but rather into New Jersey and Jersey Shore; Jersey Shore to consist of Monmouth, Ocean, Atlantic and Cape May counties; the new New Jersey to keep the rest.

He buys meat at Glory’s Discount Market in Jackson Township and drinks beer at the Sudsy Mug Saloon in Neptune, not places you'd expect to see someone with a Princeton pedigree patronizing.

He is heartbroken by the events of October 29-30, 2012, and not too thrilled by the singular event of November 6, 2012. Thus sprung the cool little book Down the Shore - Tales From the Beaches and Boards of New Jersey. He has no (current) intent to write about either election, that of 2012, or the more recent experience of 2016.

He is the source foundation for the opposing actuality of a decision that was made on October 16, 2001, and finally carried out on July 13, 2004.

He consumes a large amount of Pork Roll, eating it with American cheese and ketchup, with eggs and mushrooms, and with cheddar and mustard. Or just plain, fresh off the slab and out of the frying pan.

But for the power of the Internet, Trent Redman would literally not exist. And with all of his wisdom and knowledge, he remains on a never-ending quest to broaden his mind and the minds of those around him.

He is the essential silent partner of his boss, the guy who runs Lucky Lamb.


A little history; the Redman family goes way back. Trent is but his nickname, because he spent his youth in Trenton and was a teenage Nine Inch Nails fan, along with being an avid follower of Stephen King and was obsessed with the epic thriller The Stand. This we already know...

What we didn't know was this: His full name is Phistus Remington Redman III. He is descended of Scottish sub-royalty, all the way back to Viscount Alexander Gray Redman, the Viscount of Ulg Invergarry; and Earl Dillingham Gray Sagamore Redman, the Earl of Dun Ringill. Both the Redman and the Gray clans roamed the Scottish highlands for centuries, and brought the names to America when two Redman brothers, those named James and Lawrence, and one Gray cousin, he named William, passed through Ellis Island in September of 1925.
