Johnny Strike is an American writer, who William S. Burroughs praised with: “These are real maps of real places. That is what makes the artist. He has been there and brought it back”
Headpress published Strike’s first novel in 2004, Ports of Hell. He has interviewed Paul Bowles, Mohamed Choukri, Herbert Huncke and traveled, with extended stays in Morocco, Mexico and Thailand, where he set his fiction.
His writing has appeared in Ambit Magazine, Headpress Journal, Si Señor, and Pulp Adventures. His short story collection, A Loud Humming Came From Above, was published by Rudos and Rubes in 2008. Richard Sala, a popular artist, provided the accompanying illustrations.
He is also known as a songwriter, guitarist and singer for the proto-punk band Crime, based in San Francisco.
Naked Beast is his latest music endeavor with Guitars and Bongos. His novel Murder in the Medina follows another Tangier mystery, Name of the Stranger, both published by Bold Venture Press.
