The summer began with shock, horror, and denim shirts as Sam struggled to accept his new role as a gas station employee. To escape it, he took to the forests of Denali at every free moment, soon finding himself face-to-face with an angry adult moose, shivering numb trying to last the night on a frigid mountainside, and being seduced by a Mormon divorcee. Often satirical, sometimes introspective, and always brutally honest, MEMOIRS OF A GAS STATION takes you on a raucous ride through the best and worst summer of one man's life.
From booze-soaked employee parties to one very awkward romantic episode in a tree house, Sam learned more than he ever planned about the Last Frontier. But weekends spent stumbling through seedy Alaskan bars and hitch-hiking to remote destinations gave him a unique perspective on life, and led him to find friendship, adventure, and love in the most unexpected places.

And he's deadly. And he's unstoppable. And the town of Paskagankee will once again become a battleground between the living and the dead . . .
