“For all I knew this was going to be just another in a string of fabulous cock-ups that seemed to be scripted for us by some unknown writer somwhere, some overweight forty-year old loafing in cargo shorts and flip-flops.”
Mark Henry, Road Trip of the Living Dead

“We were looking hotter than hell, and ready to burn it down. Amanda Feral”
Mark Henry, Happy Hour of the Damned
