Jim Marquez has self-published 15 books here at LuLu in the past 10 years. His latest is "A Moveable Beast: Tales from LA & Beyond"...
Many of his books here have been transferred to apple itunes ibooks collection.
The spirit of his work can be likened to that of Charles Bukowski, Hunter S. Thomson, & Henry Miller, but Jim has carved out a modern day Los Angeles pastiche all his own.
'The Beast', as Jim is known to those who love & despise him, has published numerous pieces in local & national magazines including "Citizen LA" (a monthly arts & cultural mag out of Downtown Los Angeles where he was senior writer & literary editor for 4 years), "Artillery", "Hispanic", "Modern Drunkard Magazine", "LA Weekly", "Gallery", "Fear", "Soma", LatinoLA.com, & "Gadfly".
