Jim Johanson is a multi-genre author with backgrounds in biology and psychology. His works of fiction typically follow strange or dark themes, interwoven with unusual philosophical concepts.

Johanson strives to bring a deeper element to his writing beyond providing straightforward entertainment, wherein the reader might feel compelled to question the nature of their own reality, exemplified by his quote that "One should not be the same person when finishing a book as they were when they began reading it."

David Quammen
“Later in conversation he corrected himself: It was in fact 1.1 million pigs. The difference might seem like just a rounding error, he told me, but if you ever had to kill an “extra” hundred thousand pigs and dispose of their bodies in bulldozed pits, you’d remember the difference as significant.”
David Quammen, Spillover: Animal Infections and the Next Human Pandemic

Alan W. Watts
“To succeed is always to fail, in the sense that the more one succeeds at anything, the greater is the need to go on succeeding. To eat is to survive to be hungry.”
Alan W. Watts, The Way of Zen

C.G. Jung
“If your virtues hinder you from salvation, discard them, since they have become evil to you. The slave to virtue finds the way as little as the slave to vices.”

“In a nation run by swine, all pigs are upward-mobile and the rest of us are fucked until we can put our acts together: not necessarily to win, but mainly to keep from losing completely.”
