Now available

This week, Black Scat Books published my short tale “If You Don’t Read This, The Terrorists Will Win” in a full-color illustrated edition.

The book is the fifth in their “Absurdist Texts & Documents Series” which publisher Norman Conquest describes thusly: “This innovative chapbook series features works designed to disrupt, disorient, and smash boundaries—academic, cultural, literary, and philosophical. Each title is published in a limited edition of 50 copies.”

So get them while they’re hot…or at least while they’re available. (There’s no telling how many my Mom will want to snatch up to give as Christmas presents this year.)

More information on this and the other books in the Absurdist Texts & Documents series is available at

Please consider a purchase to help support small independent presses like Black Scat.
