About this author

Born in Jersey City, NJ, Jeff has managed to migrate just five minutes away to nearby Hoboken, land of overpriced condominiums and a tavern on every corner. Between weekly drunks, Jeff manages to scrawl enough prose onto cocktail napkins and toilet paper to keep up a respectable fiction careeer."

My first choice, naturally, would be *me*: A pudgy man in glasses who flinches every time a loud noise goes off. If my Hollywood Masters rejected this suggestion, my *second* choice would be Jason Statham, who has the right kind of world-weary expression and take-a-beating physical skills to be Avery. He's starting to get a little old for the role, but still in the range, I think.(less)

Mad-Max-Fury-Road-lovely-dayMad Max: Fury Road is a great movie. Zero exposition, nonstop action, real-feeling stuntwork, and subtle performances plus a surfeit of imagination when it comes to the details and characters of a universe — these are the ingredients for a film that will probably be remembered long after the Marvel tent collapses under its own weight. If you disagree that Fury Road is a good-to-great film, we a...

Mr. Blackmoore is a writer after my own heart - dark, hilarious, darkly hilarious, violent, and clever. What more could you possibly want?

“I decided to irritate him, on the premise that it couldn't make my situation any worse.”
Jeff Somers, The Terminal State

“I forced myself to stay put and keep looking-impatient assholes would take the leap, letting adrenaline and desperation guide them, but I was fucking ancient and I knew better. It was bitter, but I fucking knew better about just about everything.”
Jeff Somers, The Eternal Prison

“I didn't want to kill her; she was just doing her job. But she was standing between me and the rest of my miserable life, so she was going to have to take a bullet.”
Jeff Somers, The Electric Church
