‘I have not read anything like American Monster.’
Alan M Clarke, author of The Door that Faced West.
‘A sci-fi novel of sentient stars, a cyborg samurai post-apocalyptic quest with a rich and multi-layered cosmology and a lot of fine and romantically visceral writing all along the way.’
Christopher O’Riley, host of the weekly National Public Radio program From the Top.
‘A deeply original post-apocalyptic novel. Like William S. Burroughs set in Philip K. Dick’s California.’
Matthew Bialer, author of Tell Them What I Saw.
‘This is an ambitious, complex novel, one that deserves to be read and read again. You need it.’
Cameron Pierce, author of Die You Donut Bastards.
INK is my first collection of prose and poetry, gathered from pieces published over the preceding year (2011). It contains my poem, ‘Untitled,’ and my story ‘Union Falls,’ among others. It was published by my great friend Seb Doubinsky, the author of Goodbye Babylon, over at Les Editions du Zaparogue, a man whose commitment to independent publishing is exceeded only by his formidable talent. Oh and he’s prolific. I hate him. Ink is available from Les Editions Du Zaparogue.
‘We have now today an author who revels in revulsion that invites… the forensic tenderness of imagine worlds and forbidden thoughts that seem simultaneously to be both deeply peculiar and disturbingly apt.’
Kris Saknussemm, author of Zanesville.
My story, ‘Lion Man,’ is in this volume, along with works by Nancy Collins, Janice Lee and Aliette de Bodard.
‘…some of the weirdest, creepiest fiction I’ve had the pleasure to read in a while. I had the difficult task of choosing between several pieces the author submitted; each is a masterpiece of skin crawling horror.’
Deb Hoag, Editor at Dog Horn press, author of Queer and Loathing on the Yellow Brick Road.
You can find my poem, Shitty Vampire, here.
