This cover was inspired by Hack’s cover artist Jonny M.’s experiences when his home of Los Angeles was facing the scourge of Tropical Storm Hillary. It began when Jonny texted the cover art for The Bunker to a friend the day before, who responded “You’re going to hell.”
A little later when it was pouring rain from Tropical Storm Hilary, Jonny had a vision of an earthquake and having to evacuate his government-assisted housing outside. Shortly afterward, there was an earthquake (no evacuation necessary, though). When he told the same friend about it, they replied “so the earthquake is YOUR fault.”
Jonny made the cover and Hack dashed out a novel around it.
Happy Dinosaurs Day!
Hack wrote this during his brief flirtation with Evangelical Christianity. He later disowned the book even though it was a huge seller in the Bible Belt. It is still required reading in many elementary schools in Arkansas and Kentucky.
And yes, George Harrison’s face was used as the model for Jesus. Nobody noticed at the time.
Happy heavenly birthday to our beloved friend Glenn Simon.
When I had my heart attack, I was rushed to the hospital and placed on a cot in a tiny room where I was CERTAIN that I was about to die. The male nurse who was there sat on a chair next to the cot and wordlessly held my hand. It was great comfort.Happy National Nurses Day. You all have a special place reserved for you in heaven.
When Hack heard that the Exorcism scene from the cast album for Exorcistic, the extraordinary musical featuring the great Jesse Merlin, is dropping on Spotify, he excitedly wrote this rip-off novel. Trust me, the album is much better.
The album can be found here.
