Publisher's Summary

Leon flies a crop duster. He also drinks a bit, and so he figures he'd better find a place outside of town to take off and land, just to avoid investigations. He stumbles across an abandoned government airfield deep in the Great Dismal Swamp, not far from Old Mill, North Carolina. He also discovers a lot of barrels filled with something - and being the paranoid type - eventually he starts to worry they'll find him with those barrels, and it will be trouble.

He decides to get rid of it by "dusting" it over the local fields. Who will know? The problem is - the chemicals in that barrel have some interesting effects on people. They start to eat at Leon's already troubled mind, and - since Leon accidentally sprayed them over the local marijuana crop, they start to eat at a lot of other minds as well.

The timing proves fateful for Jess, who just wants to get away from the tired, country life of Old Mill, NC and his tired old friends, like Teeter, who can't stand still, but bobs back and forth like a metronome. Only Mabel seems worth saving - the question is, will the two of them survive the night?

I Liked It

This is the story Of Leonard an ex Air force guy who is a drunk and he is relegated to being a crop duster pilot who is always dodging the authorities, also you have Jess and Mabel a couple who are having wild sexual exploits and you have some pot growing, I noticed some reviewers did not like the story, but I thought it was pretty good....the narrator did a decent job. I received this audiobook for free and this is my voluntary unbiased review.

I liked it

Was a fairly well constructed short story that to me had a real 80s horror campy feel about it. Narration was good. some nasty bits. Written well enough to keep me happily invested.

Raw and explicit

A little too raunchy for my taste but well-written. Language.

Aaron Shook did a good job narrating.

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Disappointed

What would have made 'Scuse Me While I Kiss the Sky better?

I enjoy short stories. I did not really enjoy this one. I'm just glad I didn't spend much for it. The story went nowhere and then didn't pay off in the end.

"Hey, cowboy, some party, eh?"

Leonard is a loner, a semi drunken pilot, just holding onto a job crop spaying. Confronted with the problem of what to do with several cans of chemicals unobserved, the answer seems simple. Jess wants to get away from the small town in North Carolina in which he's living. He will leave after the party everyone else seems to be attending at 'The swamp.'

Psychedelic crazy, well read by narrator Aaron Shock. Quick, fun and very visual
