M.C. is a genre acrobat, alternating between YA-space operas and tales of Bizarro humor. He touches upon many different topics such as conspiracies, the occult and fringe societies.

As a co-editor for Fireside Press, M.C. works like a chimp to provide fine anthologies which delve into the odd and oblique for other writers who are ready to brave cult media waters.

He claims his heroes are Johnny Ryan, Ernest Borgnine and Soupy Sails.

I’m really high on codeine right now, so bear with me. It’s not for recreational purposes, I swear, but that’s not important. Shoot, I’ve been listening to Spacemen 3 all night and I think they are pretty awesome. Right, then…


When it comes to Bizarro fiction, a reader can experience anything from demonic pancake assaults to rabid unicorn attack battalions. This genre offers real treats for a co...

Haunted Fucking (A Book In Spasms) Kindle Edition by Philip LoPresti
Rate this book
Clear rating
Going to admit, I'm not a poet, but this collection of pieces by Philip LoPresti is nothing short of an assault. This book really works best when you read it aloud through clenched teeth while your voice is tempered by an RP-1 on heavy distortion.
