To his self-deprecating astonishment he's also been nominated for the Story South’s Million Writers Award twice without sending the judges so much as a thank you note. He co-edited the satiric transgressive fiction collection D*CKED: DARK FICTION INSPIRED BY DICK CHENEY and his debut novel KOKO TAKES A HOLIDAY is out now from Titan Books.

Hmm. Heard that Oliver Stone might be directing The Deep Blue Goodbye. Yikes. Then I flinched when someone mentioned Leonardo D. catching the Travis McGee role. Noooooo. Say it ain't so...that would just ruin it for me. I'm of the opinion that all the great actors who could pull off a convincing McGee are dead. I might be wrong, but can anyone name a solid candidate who could pull it off?
