He is also the leader of Doi-oi-oi-oi-oing, a group of artists conspiring to overthrow the popular culture, and the publisher of Pirate Enclave, a monthly e-zine with art, fiction, poetry, essays, and reviews.
His next book, The Symphony of Urban Decay, a collection of short stories, is forthcoming from Incommunicado Press and his first full-length audio book, Rube Goldberg Suicide Machine, will be available for download on Loudbooks.com later this year. Jimmy Jazz lives in San Diego, California.
"True to the tenets of postmodernism, Jimmy Jazz blurs the boundaries between fiction and nonfiction. "The Sub" is a very real, sometimes harrowing, clash of generations." -Publishers Weekly
