Fission Among the Fanatics

Published by Spuyten Duyvil (NYC)
January 2007
ISBN: (ISBN-10: 1933132337), (ISBN-13: 978-1933132334)
Fission Among the Fanatics is about growing up downwind of hydrogen bomb test sites (the sky turned black as midnight during lunchtime at my kindergarten), and receiving my writerly vocation among Mormon fundamentalists. I end up pursuing that vocation in exile, among religious nuts of a different stripe, in the most famous nuclear test sites of all: Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Itís a full-circle deal, with an extended stopover of several years in Red China. (I was kicked out for political reasons, detailed in the book.) Fission Among the Fanatics comes fully equipped with a critical appendix by Cye Johan-- "This is a book-length tour-de-force essay on Tom Bradley and The Sam Edwine Pentateuch. This may be the longest piece ever published in the Cybercorpse, and the first appearance of a genre so strange we are turning away from naming it..." Andrei Codrescu
