2021 Participant

Terry Kroenung has leapt out of perfectly functioning U.S. Army aircraft, taught Crips & Bloods on a wagon train, and been paid actual money to portray both William Shakespeare and Chuck E. Cheese. Also, they cut his heart out and threw it away. But at least he got a funny book out of it ('HeartSnark'). 'Paragon of the Eccentric', his Steampunk prequel to 'War of the Worlds', won the Colorado Gold Rush Writing Award and the Incite Denver contest for best first sentence (“When a Whitechapel whore waves her tentacles at you, attention must be paid”).
