Hack wrote this when he overheard the actors at the 99-seat theater across the street from the Shakey’s where he works as a night time janitor complain bitterly that they were slaving away at minimum wage while the producer got rich. Hack thought this was hysterical because the producer was the daytime janitor at the same Shakey’s.
Hack’s friend Eddie Frierson (see Mayonnaise is Nonsense) is an actor famous for a one-man show he performs about 16th century baseball player Christy Mathewson. When Frierson snubbed his nose at the coronavirus scare and performed the play in Los Angeles, Hack wrote this novel in tribute.
This was the second book wrote under this title after seeing Frances Fisher perform in the play. It was even less historically accurate than the first one.
Hack’s third book about the tenth century queen, this one written while he was having an acid flashback. Whatever your expectations are about this thing, it’s way weirder than that.
Hack’s obsession was still at it height after seeing Frances Fisher and Gregory Harrison perform James Goldman’s play. This book is nasty, even by Hack’s standards.
After Hack saw Frances Fisher and Gregory Harrison in this play, he became obsessed and wrote several novels on the subject. He doesn’t believe in doing any research on his books (which take him between two to four hours to write), so yeah.
Hack wrote this as soon as he heard that his celebrity crush Frances Fisher was performing the play of the same title. As always, he did no research so he thought the story was about a literal lion. It’s best read under the influence of weed.
This is the last of Hack’s “Harvey” trilogy in which the ghost of Harvey, the murderous six-foot tall invisible rodent, comes back from the dead in search of human blood and makes Elwood P. Dowd his mind slave. Dowd is placed in an asylum for the criminally insane as Harvey slaughters and then feeds on the population of the small town where Dowd lives until they are the only ones left. Harvey finally comes into the asylum with Dowd thinking that Harvey will free him, but it eats him instead.
Hack’s novelization of the play “Harvey” was so successful that he wrote this sequel where, after the hero Elwood P. Dowd finally frees himself of being the savage rodent’s mind slave and destroys in by feeding it into a gigantic meat grinder, Harvey’s ghost comes back for revenge. After that, it plays out pretty much exactly like it did in the first book.
