Ray has some serious chops as an author, from reading the sample here -- he's got an element that calls to mind John Shirley or Phillip K. Dick but a little more futuristic. In 2005 he told me he was working on a novel, the song Megotholis -- the sci-fi lyrics, that is all Skeleton King. Though I wish Ray had some practice writing more shorter material first before taking on a first novel. As two years ago with me, I wrote my first novel. I give Ray some major props on getting this done -- I was trying to convince him to do a picture wearing a tie to fit the science fiction author characteristic. He is in the club of heavy metal musicians who are also authors ie Marilyn Manson, Paul from the first two Iron Maiden albums with The Beast, Paul Kuhr of Novembers Doom with a book explaining the meaning of the lyrics of their catalog, Jason Hughes, and a host of others in the underground horror genre who are rooted in heavy metal music. Ray, my friend, I salute you in getting this done --... More > Cheers.< Less
