Five blistering stories waist-deep in satire and packed with absurdity, graphic behavior, vulgar behemoths, off-world unpleasantness, questionable sex, disguises, off-brand liquor and double-anti heroes. Sci fi, detectives, revenge, various types of love and a heroine in the form of a sentient can of wax beans. What else do you require?
Kelly Green has published 26 chapbooks and books of poetry, fiction and non-fiction since 1990. He has no degrees, no awards, no grants, no children and no bananas. He lives in Frederic, Wisconsin with his beloved Win Herberg. He co-founded Poetry Harbor in Duluth, Minnesota, in 1989, has worked for arts newspapers, given hundreds of public readings and performances and created two spoken word/music cd's. He is still looking for a target audience. The Jones Creature was born in New England, came of age in the Midwest and currently serves his sentence in Dallas, Texas. He is the author of I WAS A BARE NAKED MAN FROM OUTER SPACE (Pariah Press), FROM PARTS UNKNOWN (Liquid Paper Press) and SWAMP YANKEE (Destructible Heart Press). He ran the Lost Prophet Press which was responsible for the magazines KNUCKLE MERCHANT and THIN COYOTE. He received his B.A. from Macalester College in St. Paul, Minnesota, and an M.F.A. from UNM in Albuquerque. He also gave birth to the greatest son in the history of procreation, Pharaoh Cyrenius Jones. On the very night these two authors met, at a reading in the long-dead Bad Habit Cafe in downtown St. Paul, their picture was taken and published the next day in The St. Paul Pioneer Press. The police were immediately alerted and nothing has been the same ever since.
