Indie Rock Legend Jim Bob (Carter: The Unstoppable Sex Machine) visited Forbidden Planet Megastore, 179 Shaftesbury Avenue, London, WC2H 8JR, on Saturday 8th May 2010 to sign copies of his first novel, Storage Stories>

Where do old pop stars go to die? They go to work in self-storage, where they make new friends who look like Juliette Binoche or who perform horrific surgery on themselves. They meet assorted bubblewrap fetishists, wooden statues that come to life at night a homicidal computer named HAL. Storage Stories reads like the autobiography of a man discovering what it's like to be famous and yet no longer successful – a man finds true love in the dusty world of a failing self-storage company.
