The Search for Tom Purdue - Howard Waldrop

"And then I was sitting in the coffee shop in 1955, the half-gone dunked doughnut still in my fingers. There had been the nastiest war in history; the Atom Bomb was hanging over our heads, and the World of Tomorrow was a Ring King® turning out doughnuts for regular schmoes trying to make a living looking for lost stag films in a world of fear and morons.

Ka-chinka said the Ring King® ka-chinka."
