Description


Deep within the confines of his sheltered delusion, Bill Butler is a loving father and husband, and a successful corporate executive, but his reality is far different. Bill is estranged from his wife, detached from his daughter, and is a constant target of ridicule at his job – and he is on a straight path to mental breakdown. The Brain Drips Yellow is one man's descent into madness. Along his journey he is introduced to a sadistic dwarf, a magician-turned-priest, and a suave demonic entity – but did he evoke this entity or is it another manifestation of a deteriorating mind? The demon leads Bill into a surreal world that he refers to as the "scent world" – a world where he is free to purge himself of his fears and satiate his deepest desires. But as Bill spirals into madness, the lines between reality and fantasy begin to blur. Burn Moor philosophically shreds through our cultural mores, our religious fanaticisms, and our concepts of identity while bringing us uncomfortably close to the face of mental illness. The Brain Drips Yellow is a novel that will leave you ruminating long after you've read the final page.

About the author


At the age of eight, Burn Moor got a hold of his grandfather's antique typewriter, inserted a piece of paper, and punched the keys to a detective story. This would serve as the beginning of a lifelong passion for literature. Influenced by some of the greatest authors to ever bleed ink into paper -- Charles Dickens, Franz Kafka, Arthur Machen, Edgar Allan Poe, Thomas Ligotti, and Haruki Murakami, as well as a heavy dose of Rod Serling's, The Twilight Zone -- Burn Moor tosses his readers into dark worlds of the nihilistic, the surreal, and the psychologically twisted. Burn grew up in NYC, immersed in a culturally and religiously diverse environment, which shaped his innate ability to push the envelope of literature, while constantly challenging our beliefs though his surreal worlds. Burn's hobbies throughout his life also shaped much of his persona. Dealing with depression from a young age, Burn delved in high-risk activities, such as skydiving, snowboarding, motorcycle racing, and mixed martial arts as a way of combatting the darkness within, constantly seeking to challenge death, which is a ubiquitous theme in his writing. After spending several unfulfilling years in the corporate environment (a theme that is also prevalent in his work) Burn and his wife transitioned to entrepreneurship, which afforded him the time to pursue his true passions, and eventually accomplish the lifelong ambition of publishing his work. Burn and his wife and daughter now reside in the mountains of Colorado. Aside from owning several businesses, he trains as a fighter and powerlifter, and has recently pursued a passion for music as the lead singer of a blues metal band -- Pagan Lust. They are currently in studio recording their first album. Burn Moor's debut fiction novel is entitled The Brain Drips Yellow and he has just completed his second novel, Beyond the Veil, The Road Leadeth.
