Eric Stringer (the neurotic persona of Harvey Stanbrough) is a miserably failed newspaper reporter whose mother didn’t love him enough. Once he got out of prison he began to write stories about all the strange and unusual things he saw—some of them were actually there—and about which he fantasized. Anyway, Eric really isn’t such a bad guy once you get to know him, and he can tell a pretty good story. He asked me to say he currently lives and writes in a state of anxiety. (Wow, there’s a shock, right?) Anyway, I’ll ask him to give me a better bio than this the next time I catch him in the right mood.
