    The name under the icon was "GoToOz."
As soon as I fnish these last few lines, I'm saving all of these words: mine, Aurie's and the Mickie's, as a compressed text fle, and posting it to alt.conspiracy and a few other high traffc newsgroups on the web. I'll slap a copyright notice on there for good measure.
    Whether or not anybody believes it, or cares, remains to be seen.
    Hell, maybe the CIA will offer to do an investigation of itself. Maybe Pace/Horner will option the flm rights. And Captain Meatball can sell little Gene and Ledelei action fgures at the drive-through window.
    I'm gonna wait and see. Maybe I'll get rich. Maybe nothing will happen. But if things start to look the least bit dangerous, I'm going to double-click that funny little icon my buddy left me.
    I'll make sure the cats are crawling all over me frst.
    I've always wanted to fnd out exactly what they think of me.

Marc Levinthal is a writer and musician who has lived and worked in the Lo
s Angeles area for thirty years. Born and raised in Buffalo, New York, he moved to L.A. in the early eighties to become a rock star. That didn't quite happen as planned, but a lot of other cool stuff did. He has been involved with both "The Music Business" (having written the hit single "Three Little Pigs" while in the band Green Jello) and the "Motion Picture Industry" (having co-written the score for the cult classic Valley Girl). Marc has published several short stories and novellas, including "Trainslapper," "Lou's Seventh Cylinder," and (with John Skipp) "The Punchline," "Now Entering Monkeyface," "God Save the Queen", and "On a Big Night in Monster History." This is his frst novel. He and his wife Rebecca presently spend much of their time caring for two chimpanzees disguised as small children. (The chimpanzees, not Marc and Rebecca. That would be wrong.)

John Skipp is a New York Times bestselling writer, editor, zombie splatterpun
k champion, and notorious horror bigshot. Born in Milwaukee, raised in Arlington, VA and Buenos Aires, Argentina, marinated in York, PA, and served up juicy in New York City, he moved to L.A. in 1992 to become a Hollywood screenwriter. That didn't quite work out as planned, either. And yet the fun ensues. His other books include The Light at the End, The Cleanup, The Scream, Deadlines, Th
Bridge, Animals, Fright Night, Book of the Dead, and Still Dead (with Craig Spec
tor); Jake's Wake, The Day Before, and Spore (with Cody Goodfellow); Opposit
Sex (as Gina McQueen); Conscience, Stupography, and The Long Last Call (solo)
; and, as solo editor, Mondo Zombie, Zombies: Encounters with the Hungry Dead, and Werewolves and Shapeshifters: Encounters With the Beast Within. He lives with family/friends, both human and otherwise, on a hill overlooking the glistening spires of downtown Los Angeles.
