there are the dead, the deadly and the dying.

there is the cross, the builders of the cross and the burners of the

cross.

to wherever it can crawl.

final

and the happiest are those gifted with the

shortest journey.

He was born in 1920 in Andernach, Germany, to an American soldier father and a German mother, and brought to the United States at the age of two. He was raised in Los Angeles and lived there for over fifty years. He died in San Pedro, California, on March 9, 1994, at the age of seventy-three, shortly after completing his last novel, Pulp.
