About the Author

JAMES BERNARD FROST is the author of the novel World Leader Pretend, and the award-winning travel guide The Artichoke Trail. His fiction and nonfiction has been published in many places, including the San Francisco Examiner, the San Francisco Bay Guardian, and Wired. He lives in Oregon with the author Kerry Cohen, their four children, the rain, the freaks, and the trees. His bike is currently in disrepair.


BUCKING A HEADWIND of despair, Frost pedals his verbal bicycle into the belly of the Beast, only to return bearing a brand-new Gospel illuminated with Voodoo cream and composed in the edgy vernacular of Portland's thriving freak scene. --TOM ROBBINS, author of Villa Incognito

TO DATE ONLY GUS VAN SANT has depicted the grim, dim, greasy, cramped world of Portland, Oregon. Now James Bernard Frost has given us the best novel, ever, about this strange underground world of misfits and heroes. --CHUCK PALAHNIUK, author of Tell-All

A VALENTINE TO coffee and bikes and rain. It's a love story between an aimless twenty-something zinester who finds his purpose in a dwarf prophet, and a tattooed tough-girl bike messenger with OCD and a teddy bear collection. --CHELSEA CAIN, author of The Night Season

WITH ALL THE POETRY and skill of a deranged art collector, James Bernard Frost has thrown the zine scene, bumper sticker theocracy, bicycle pirates and hipster love into a coffee grinder of awesome. --G. XAVIER ROBILLARD author of Captain Freedom: A Superhero's Quest for Truth, Justice, and the Celebrity He So Richly Deserves
