Check out his entire list of published work HERE.


1. Preferred type of apocalypse (plague, nuclear holocaust, ice age, etc.):

I think about this more than I should, frankly.  The two constants in my weird fantasy-nightmares are black-and-orange shading and a Hans Zimmer score. I hope the apocalypse is somehow spiritual though. That’d be so much more interesting to me. I hope it’s Catholic.
2. Preferred post-apocalyptic city:
Paris because I’ve never seen it.
3. Preferred anti-zombie weapon: a previously derided encyclopedic knowledge of voodoo and George Romero movies.
4. Top five necessities to bring to the fallout shelter:
cigarettes, canned goods, Uno, the internet, lighters for the cigarettes.
5. Describe said fallout shelter:
A little cramped.
6. Who would be in your post-apocalyptic gang?
Mike Huckabee and Jay-Z (tormented by Beyonce’s death).
7. You’re the new charismatic leader of a cult of your choosing. What do you wear to your first meeting?
Navy slacks and my opal cuff links.
8. Spirit guide?
Beyonce, with whom—it is revealed in a series of flashbacks—I’d previously had a passionate affair.
9. If you had to eat another author (in Artifice 4 or otherwise) who would it be and why?
James Franco because he’s young and tender :-*
10.  Some say a planet called ‘Nibiru’ will collide with the earth in December 2012. Tell us about Nibiru.
Nibiru is non-existent.
