Bewildering Stories biography
I am a writer of experimental fiction and a cofounder of the criminal literary circle The Tender Wolves Society. TWS is a trinity of convicted violent felons who happen to write. One of the founders remains incarcerated for dismembering a corpse after a rather nasty “thrill kill”; the other two are on the streets, which shows you how foolish the state is.
The group, inspired by E.T.A. Hoffmann’s The Serapion Brethren but updated for this “century of fragmentation,” engages in literary pranks, sadism, philosophical rants, the fomentation of madness, and what we like to call ontological terrorism. We are misanthropic loners with vast surpluses of hate who will most surely come to bad ends.
I have pieces in Poor Mojo’s Almanac(k) and Weird Year, and pieces forthcoming in Yellow Mama and Broadswords & Blasters. Sometimes I make disturbing videos.
I will be directing a feature film soon, about a creep who’s obsessed with adapting John Wyndham’s The Day of the Triffids, but he doesn’t have a budget to speak of and ends up stabbing his girlfriend to death before finishing his laughably inept adaptation.
I’m partway through the second draft of my first decently executed novel, which I like to describe as a kind of gay, stoner version of Star Wars. I live in Detroit and I’m armed.
