About Ray Hecht

Long story short, raised in America from the Midwest to the West Coast on a starchy diet of movies and comics and science fiction paperbacks. There's a Mid-East connection in there too. I like to write about such states as California and Ohio, and such provinces as Guangdong. Japan being an interesting topic as well.

Lived in Shenzhen, China since 2008 (has it really been that long?), a lovely Special Economic Zone Hong Kong-bordering chaotic city that has given me so much. I occasionally do some freelance journalism for various local publications. If you're actually interested, just google "Ray Hecht Shenzhen" for more...

A few inspirations, if I may: Irvine Welsh, William S. Burroughs, James Joyce, Grant Morrison, Daniel Clowes, Haruki Murakami, Bret Easton Ellis, Neal Stephenson, Philip K. Dick

Review by: Shenzhen Penguin on Dec. 30, 2013 :
I paid too much for this book and it was free. Reading it was rather like being attacked by a toothless squirrel; gummy and slightly irritating.

It would behoove the author to learn to proofread and perhaps to write a sentence too. The narrative style conveys all the appeal of a 13 week-old rodent corpse. Though this might be pushed to 26 weeks in places.

If you have a couple of hours of your life to waste then why not dedicate them to helping the poor or placing your hand on the gas burner instead of spending them with this novel? At least that experience would be memorable.
