Stairway to Hell

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.

Dinosaurs of the Bible

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.
