Meet the Author

Regan Wolfrom (born at the tail end of the disco era) has come a long way from his 1986 debut novel Harry the Adventurous Hamster (currently out of print due to having never been published or completed). After a break from writing to attend puberty, and to eventually sell six packs of Molson Canadian to his misnamed crush, Moosehead Girl, Regan returned to the craft with reckless abandon and a gallon jug of iced tea with just a smattering of extremely cheap rum.Regan is now the author of numerous short stories and an upcoming post-apocalyptic novel series with only one mention (so far) of zombie erections. Regan hopes to one day write a novel set on Mars while sitting in his boxer shorts on the actual Red Planet, and everything that comes before that is really just his way of saving up for the one-way trip.Though Regan has been shafted by residency requirements in his pursuit of the MacArthur genius grant, his current fiction is considered to be of high caliber, reflecting a marked improvement in style and grammar from the aforementioned thing with the hamster. It also has far fewer graphic scenes of pound puppy plushes having sex in the back of a shoebox with paper wheels.What does Regan have to say about Regan?"I recently passed up the chance to hassle Samuel L. Jackson.""I've always wanted to change my name to something boring, like Hugh Howey.""I know how to cook six things. None of them are oatmeal.""I write stories that are weird, a little dark, and definitely inappropriate for my children. It could be tough to keep that going when they get to be as old and weird as I am today.""Oh... and my dog is in love with me... like... in a disturbing way."Please read one of Regan's stories for a more in-depth tour of Regan's unresolved childhood issues.

    Good

    Some stories were pretty good while others were so boring it was almost painful just trying to get through them.

    Review:

    "Catholic Guilt and The Joy of Hating Men" by Regan Wolfrom was a read of nine short stories of different women with a 'wide range of emotions: from joy, laughter, terror, chills down my spine, wanting to give some characters high-fives, and then wanting to smack one of these characters over the head.' I think that says it all. Most all of these stories feature some kind of paranormal, fantasy and supernatural world presence with a mix of humor. This is a collection of different situations that they have faced and how thy totally dealt with it in their own way. For the most part the stores were engaging especially if you are a horror fan. I will say this book isn't for everyone especially if you are easily offended or don't appreciate a darker humor and themes...this book would not be for you. Now, if you are into dark humor and funny dark themes then this read would be for you.
