The Last Days of John Budgen Jr. transcribes the blog of the recently deceased John Budgen Jr. The story, told in five installments, was conceived as a printed publication, the first four sections of which were distributed free of charge in the midwest and beyond. Dr. Carol Sklenicka writes in praise of Chapter One, "And who but Druecke would unearth the speculation that James Joyce would have thrived as an author of spam?" Geri Mateceli writes, "The trajectory of the Last Days swerves around obvious questions. It meanders through doubts and certainties with the fickleness of a shadow at twilight." This book completes the project by including the fifth and final chapter along with an epilogue.
