About the author
Mike Bryant was once ejected from a Karaoke bar for performing the Weird Al Yankovic classic "Yoda", instead of taking things seriously. Many years later, in an unrelated event, his lady friend began dragging him out to poetry readings. Most of the poets were, by definition, average. Some were excellent. But others made him want to gnaw off his own foot in order to get away from their ill-conceived, self-important, pretentious ramblings. But that would be stupid because without his foot he wouldn't be able to walk and then he'd just have to sit there bleeding and how would he wear boots? And so, in a fit of mean-spiritedness, he wrote a piece entitled "I Am A Shitty Poet" and performed it at one of Toronto's many open mic nights. Fully expecting to find himself once again ejected from a venue, Mike was instead pleasantly surprised by the sound of applause. Sure, it was probably applause of the polite, please-just-don't-hurt-us sort, but it was good enough for him. After that, things just started to spiral out of control. He has since featured at many reading series, released 2-and-a-half self-published chapbooks, recorded a Spoken Word CD, and published a two novellas; "Operation Dickhead", published by Burning Effigy Press, and "Shaolin Rock Star". Mike likes Science Fiction and Heavy Metal, which is sure to make him a hit with the ladies.
