About Mel C. Thompson

Mel C. Thompson is a writer of fiction and poetry. His stories tend to center around the topics of greed, sex, religion, alcohol, and history. He is a cultural relativist, which means the good guys and the bad guys are often hard to find in any given tale he is telling. Being a staunch enemy of political correctness and traditionalist norms, it is unlikely that a doctrinaire conservative or an orthodox liberal would come away from these stories feeling happy. He is a trained philosopher who majored in that discipline at the California State University at Fullerton, specializing in such diverse topics as World Religions and scientific methodology. Much of his fiction might loosely be called "theological comedy," although he is now venturing into more overtly secular themes. He is also a publisher and has published other authors under his Mel C. Thompson Publishing Company label. As an amateur musician and part-time radio personality, he appeared on KMEL as a nerd rapper and geek-philosopher. He earlier wrote Buddhist hymns and ordinary pop songs. He survived as a security guard and clerical worker for decades before going out on disability due to a host of physical and mental health problems. At this phase of his life, his studies have gravitated toward higher math, computer literacy and electronics.

Jnana Hodson reviewed on Aug. 24, 2019

With this scandalous fictionalized take on the direct disciple of Jesus and oft-presumed author of the fourth gospel and the Book of Revelation, Thompson continues with his wild iconoclastic rips, this time flailing Christianity rather than Buddhism. Or, from another perspective, it's more the filthy rich and obscenely powerful he's excoriating in this wacko satire set on a Mediterranean island during the Roman Empire. It's sinful and sticky sweet, for sure, and in no way convincing, other than the lunatic laughter, but it might even make you want to read the Bible accounts to see what you've been missing.
