About Joe DiBuduo

Like the hero of Cryonic Man, author Joe DiBuduo grew up in Hano, one of the toughest neighborhoods in Boston. He became a writer and an artist, not a prizefighter, but in his rough-and-tumble youth, he never turned away from a street fight.

DiBuduo is also the author of a second mixed genre paranormal novel, The Mountain Will Cover You (JD Books, 2016); a second volume of connected short fiction, Story Time Karaoke @ The Chicagoua Cafe (JD Books, 2016); a historically relevant memoir, Crime A Day: Death by Electric Chair & Other Boyhood Pursuits (Jaded Ibis Press, 2016), and a popular narrative nonfiction book, A Penis Manologue: One Man’s Response to The Vagina Monologues (JD Books, 2009, 2013). His publication credits include four collections of flash fiction and a collection of his signature “poetic flash fiction;” a collection of sci-fi poetry and a children's storybook. Jis poetry and short stories for children and adults also appear in online journals and in print anthologies. For more info about DiBuduo's work, see
