Richard Thomas is a busy man. He reviews books for The Nervous Breakdown. He’s a regular contributor to LitReactor and Buzzfeed (yeah, that Buzzfeed…the one with all those lists you love). He’s the editor in chief over at Dark House Press which is enjoying a very successful release of their anthology The New Black. And speaking of anthologies, he’s the co-editor of Burnt Tongues, the Chuck Palahniuk anthology which is due to drop this August through Medallion Press. He’s also an author, and most recently he snagged a two-book deal with Random House Alibi. I can’t even get into how many short stories the guy has published…but it’s a numerical fuck-ton. The dude has even appeared right alongside Stephen King himself.
Believe me, I’m only scratching the surface of this guy’s resume. More importantly, he’s a friend and consummate supporter…so I’m fucking thrilled that Richard took the time to read my newest release and drop some blurbage for me:
Sacrilegious is one word that comes to mind. Transgressive is another. This novel carries a lot of heat, mixed with epiphanies, regret, and disgust. But it is not without humor—the harsh truth lying just beneath the punch lines that coat the scarred surface. A strong voice that always entertains and never disappoints, GSGP is a wild ride, from start to finish.
Thank you, Richard…this made my week.
