Ricky Sprague’s work has appeared in a wide range of publications including Mad, Cracked, Nickelodeon Magazine, Mystery Weekly, and Ellery Queen’s Mystery Magazine. He’s written comics for publishers such as Short Scary Tales, Moonstone Books, and Platinum Studios. His short animated films have screened at festivals worldwide, from Spike & Mike’s Sick & Twisted Festival of Animation to Sydney Underground to Dragon*Con.

Ricky, who is actually writing this right now in the third person, has a fascination with the strange and bizarre.

Sorry but this is a great book. It's about half as dumb as a Jack Reacher novel, and twice as funny. But the laughs are intentional.

“was so distraught over his death that I was barely able to eat any of him.”
Ricky Sprague, The Hungry Game: A Spoof

“A kitten is almost too easy, I think, as I quickly pull out its fur and separate and de-bone it, and put the pieces in the blast cooker for three of the remaining four minutes, then add them to my gumbo, just as Chef Reamsy calls time. “Ladies first,” he says, as I present him with a plate. “What have we here?” “Chef, this is a Slim Jim, Chee-Tos, and kitten gumbo in a spicy Pepsi sauce,” I say. “Bon appetite.” He picks through it. “It certainly looks visually stunning,” he says. “What’d you use in the sauce?” “Pepsi, and a little K-C Masterpiece barbecue sauce. I put that in a pan and let it reduce down.” He takes a bite. “Flavorful. The meat is moist and tender, the sauce has just the right amount of spice, and I love the way you incorporated the stray kitten into the dish. Well done indeed.”
