After graduating magna cum laude from Lawrence University (Appleton, Wisconsin), Julian Darius obtained his M.A. in English, authoring a thesis on John Milton and utopianism. In 2002, he moved to Waikiki, teaching college while obtaining an M.A. in French (high honors) and a Ph.D. in English. In 2011, he founded Martian Lit, an offbeat literary house and comics publisher, for which he writes several acclaimed titles, including Martian Comics, Necropolitan, Kimot Ren, Lazarus, and The Synthetics.

In 1996, while still an undergraduate, Darius founded what would become Sequart Research & Literacy Organization, an organization devoted to promoting comic books as a legitimate art form. He wrote copiously for Sequart’s website, has authored bo

One of the key questions of the Democratic primary is whether Bernie Sanders can actually get his policies enacted. Hillary Clinton has arguably made this the key issue of her campaign, arguing that she's a progressive like Bernie, the key difference being that she has a record of getting things done.

Of course, this ignores that their positions, and their adherence to these positions over the d... Read more of this blog post »

“I have had my say, as he wished. Now the book belongs, as he points out, to the world he claims to speak for.”
Julian Darius, Nira/Sussa

“All I ever wanted, nira I expected: Nonette, upon whom my life pivots.

The name I give my fire when I lay down, defenseless before its majestic awfulness.

A little no, a little negation. A French girly pout, the syllables for which have been found at last.

All my hurt dug up, exposed for dissection in the glaring light, and finally melted away by the loving caresses of her yielding thighs.

And the girl who took such simple joy in this terrible duty.

Nonette.”
Julian Darius, Nira/Sussa

“I am by profession an agent and no writer, so you will have to pardon any lack of literary flourish.”
Julian Darius, Nira/Sussa

“People are afraid to merge on freeways in Los Angeles. This is the first thing I hear when I come back to the city. Blair picks me up from LAX and mutters this under her breath as she drives up the onramp. She says, "People are afraid to merge on freeways in Los Angeles." Though that sentence shouldn't bother me, it stays in my mind for an uncomfortably long time. Nothing else seems to matter. Not the fact that I'm eighteen and it's December and the ride on the plane had been rough and the couple from Santa Barbara, who were sitting across from me in first class, had gotten pretty drunk. Not the mud that had splattered on the legs of my jeans, which felt kind of cold and loose, earlier that day at an airport in New Hampshire. Not the stain on the arm of the wrinkled, damp shirt I wear, a shirt which looked fresh and clean this morning. Not the tear on the neck of my gray argyle vest, which seems vaguely more eastern than before, especially next to Blair's clean tight jeans and her pale-blue shirt. All of this seems irrelevant next to that one sentence. It seems easier to hear that people are afraid to merge than "I'm pretty sure Muriel is anorexic" or the singer on the radio crying out about magnetic waves. Nothing else seems to matter to me but those ten words. Not the warm winds, which seem to propel the car down the empty asphalt freeway, or the faded smell of marijuana which still faintly permeates Blaire's car. All it comes down to is the fact that I'm a boy coming home for a month and meeting someone whom I haven't seen for four months and people are afraid to merge.”
Bret Easton Ellis, Less Than Zero

“This is not an exit.”
Bret Easton Ellis, American Psycho

“I tried to make meat loaf out of the girl but it becomes too frustrating a task and instead I spend the afternoon smearing her meat all over the walls, chewing on strips of skin I ripped from her body”
Bret Easton Ellis, American Psycho

“What keeps me interested--and it always does--is how can she be a bad actress on film but a good one in reality?”
Bret Easton Ellis, Imperial Bedrooms

“It's only after we've lost everything that we're free to do anything.”
Chuck Palahniuk, Fight Club
