Nigel Anthony Sellars was born in Birmingham, England, but spent his early childhood just outside Montreal, Quebec. His family later moved to the Oklahoma City area, where he attended high school and graduated from the University of Oklahoma in Norman.
He has variously been an actor, folk-singer, rat runner, and chimp researcher. He was later an award-winning journalist and newspaper editor before pursuing a doctorate in history at the University of Oklahoma. He is also author of five books, including the recently released fantasy novel Ukishima, from Hydra Publications and a forthcoming science fiction novel The Gonayme Weapon, from Montag Press. He lives with his wife Nancy in Newport News, Virginia, where he is associate professor of history at Christopher Newport University.
Some of his published work has appeared in small press publications such as Space & Time, Visions, and Beyond, as well online in Marco Polo, Anothrealm, Jake’s Monthly and A Cruel World. Many of his stories were collected in his book The Confessions of Caliban and Other Stories (Lincoln, Nebraska: Writers Club Press/iUniverse, 2002.)

A non-fact biography of the mythical Edgar Rice Krispies, the world's worst pulp writer.

- Jake's Monthly- Bizarro Anthology
on April 01, 2012
Disclaimer: I have two pieces in this anthology, so I'm going to be just a bit biased.
That said, Jake's choices of bizarro fiction is terrific. Some times you just need to read something that is odd, weird, silly, slapstick or simply nonsensical. And this anthology delivers the goods, especially as one can never have too many exploding men, heavily armed bovines, or lap dancers in a story. For our own sanity, Americans need more bizarro works like this one.
