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.

Read the Book, Then...

To break up my summer catch up reading list (mostly crime and mystery), I snatched up a copy of Junger's WAR yesterday and stayed up all night blitzing my way through it. You know what? Believe the hype, people. Believe it. I defy anyone to put this book down once they start. I'm also betting dollars to doughnuts that the Pulitzer committee already has locked in their votes. Stunning and heartbreaking. Have to see the movie, like, now.
