My stories have been published in a lot of weird books over the last decade or so, but this is by far the most absurd project I have ever been involved in:
Hamsters! A Fabulous Anthology is a collection of stories about hamsters. What the fuck? It’s 300-plus pages long and includes stories by some of the coolest cats in the bizarro and horror fiction undergrounds. My story is called “Hamsters are for Pussies.” It’s about jackasses who use their pets to demonstrate their own masculinity. Or maybe it’s about brain eating.
Dynatox Ministries released this as a benefit for Raye Roeske, a bizarro fiction superfan who is going through a tough one. So you can read a bunch of fucked-up hamster stories and support a good cause.
New Chapbook Out Now (And Going Fast)
Speaking of Dynatox Ministries, the publisher also released my latest chapbook, Death Warp.
Death Warp is a doomed romance story, interrupted by a gross-out Wisconsin-style bizarro horror story. It’s unlike anything else I’ve released. This chapbook is limited to 50 copies. More than half are sold out already. You should probably get this, if only for the awesome Jay Hansen cover art. It’s like Lucio Fulci takes Wisconsin.
Twin Cities Book Festival This Weekend
I’ll be selling and signing books at the Twin Cities Book Festival this Saturday. It’s a free event. This is your chance to support the local lit scene and load up on books to help you through the impending bleak winter.
