Floyd M. Orr
Floyd M. Orr is the founder of three blogs, the author of four books, and a contributor to two coffee-table books. He writes from the confines of his own deluded little mind in a genre he calls Nonfiction in a Fictional Style. All of his work is very personal, real, cerebral, entertaining, and generally of a nonfictional nature. He enjoys writing in short, inspired bursts of energy, usually early in the morning or in the middle of the night. His works could be considered compilations of history and dreams, with commentary thrown in for good measure.
The author's favorite reading material is an esoteric combination of Playboy Magazine, coffee-table-sized books of car and motorcycle history, small automotive books chocked with facts and figures, political commentary books, Anne Rice novels, psychosocial dating manuals, and fictional stories of mysteries and werewolves.
The author's favorite authors are Don Martin (his Fester & Karbunkle series), Anne Rice, Kurt Vonnegut, Jean Shepherd, Peter Egan, Al Franken, Al Past, Joe Bageant, P. J. O'Rourke, Robert Rimmer, Paul Krugman, Thomas Frank, Eric Schlosser, Dean Koontz, Stephen King, D. H. Schleicher, Paul Stiles, and Barbara Ehrenreich.
Who is Floyd M. Orr? He is absolutely unknown and unfamous, but you can think of him as a mixture of Bill Hicks, Bill Maher, Bill Engvall, George Carlin, Lewis Black, Denis Leary, Al Franken, Jon Stewart, Robin Williams, Dana Carvey, Charlie Rose, Peter Fonda, Forrest Gump, Frank Burns, and Charles Emerson Winchester III. But he's not as smart or talented as any of those guys.
