I'm not saying "DAE DRUMPF." I'm saying the election of DT was one of the most remarkable political happenings of our time, and something that was horrific to about 51% of the population because sober, credentialed, well-paid experts had assured this 51% it "couldn't " happen. And then it did.

I am a Calibri 11 point font man. Something about it has always seemed appropriately eldritch to me.

Great question Iggy. My favorite works of zombie comedy horror are probably:
- Return of the Living Dead
- Return of the Living Dead Part II
- Braindead/Dead Alive
- Each and every Terry Pratchett novel with scenes featuring Reg Shoe or Mr. Slant

Hi Cory, I just use Microsoft Word. The nice thing about having a publisher is that they handle the layout for you.

Let me caution you now that writing fiction, generally, is a lousy road to "profit." Considering the amount of time (years?) that can go into writing a book, authors sometimes make less than minimum wage. I think you have to be a little insane to do it. The writer John Gardner (who wrote "Grendel") talks in an essay somewhere about how this is really driven home when you begin to reach middle-age. If you're a writer, you probably hung out with the smarter guys and gals in school. And so your friends went on to be things like doctors and lawyers. But the financial reward for getting a short story juuuuuuust right will never be anything near the financial reward for devoting that same amount of time to mastering tort law or thoracic surgery. Suppose a story of yours does the best a story can; it's printed in the New Yorker and goes on to be published in a collection of short stories. You have, in that scenario, probably made what an average surgeon-- not a great surgeon, an average one-- makes in a month. (For more on the state of author compensation, I recommend Robert Brockway's piece on the subject in Cracked.com.)
