John Bruni was born on July 25, 1978 in Elmhurst, Illinois. He attended local schools from kindergarten all the way through college, where he spent time as a journalist for the Elmhurst College Leader, writing comic book reviews, an occasional feature article, and a series of regular columns as THE STRAIGHT with his Primitive Underbelly partner, Jesse “GonZo” Russell (whose story, “Bear’s Tale, Abridged” appears serialized in all three issues of TABARD INN). He was also the poetry editor of the campus literary/art magazine, MIDDLEWESTERN VOICE, for a whole two weeks, during which time he chose none of the poems that were published.

Another great Davenport adventure. This time he's after a cannibal, which makes things a lot more interesting. This cannibal also has an amazing amount of dumb luck, which makes it all that much more difficult to hunt him down. It's good to see Daven ...more

This is an interesting take on the werewolf story. It's not technically a werewolf book, but what the hell? It starts out from Bernard's POV, which is off-putting because he's the villain of the story. Mark is the kinda-sorta werewolf, and Bernard, a ...more

What a wonderful book! I'm glad I'm parsing Vonnegut's books out, since he's no longer around to write more. I think if I read them all at once, it wouldn't have quite the same effect. I love the symbolism in this one, from the title in reference to ...more
