Read full description of the books:
Enjoy Me, a collection of stories by Logan Ryan Smith, tells the tales of unreliable narrator, Luke-a down and out, sometimes unemployed writer living in San Francisco among zombies, monsters, and cricket-people. He navigates this world in search of love, respect, drugs, booze, and satisfaction, often seeking others through a haze of fantasy, despite his evident misanthropy. But fantasy and reality mix, leaving everyone involved with questions of which is which, and whether it even matters. Sometimes likable, more often despicable, Luke relates his narratives with lyrical urgency and a healthy dose of fear, anxiety, and the inevitable apathy. These are stories of dark comedy and just plain darkness taking cue from writers the likes of Brett Easton Ellis, Chuck Palahniuk, and Joyce Carol Oates, but with a little less than one foot on the ground and more than a couple twitching antennae in the clouds.

Read information about the authorLogan Ryan Smith writes unclassifiable fiction that fits somewhere in between literary, transgressive, and surreal, all with a dark comedy underbelly and lyrical leaning. His work appeals to readers of cult fiction and of authors such as Bret Easton Ellis, Chuck Palahniuk, Irvine Welsh, Charles Bukowski, Shirley Jackson, and Hunter S. Thompson. Y is for Fidelity, Logan's most recent novel, is a disturbingly comedic tale of friendship and self-discovery that takes twists and turns opposite of every expectation. His book previous to that, Western Palaces, is the follow-up to 2015’s Enjoy Me. Each are collections of interlinked stories telling the bizarre, fantastical, and often hilarious tales of Luke, a down-and-out writer living in San Francisco’s seedy Tenderloin where zombies, bipedal crickets, ghosts, and monsters always linger in the peripherals. My Eyes Are Black Holes, released between Enjoy Me and Western Palaces, is a twisted novella of false memory, madness, and violence that pays homage to haunted house stories while never actually slipping into the genre. Logan describes it as his "unhaunted haunted house story."
Though focusing exclusively on fiction now, his poetry books include The Singers & The Notes (Dusie Press, 2007), Stupid Birds (Transmission Press, 2007), and, most recently, Bug House (Mission Cleaners Books, 2013)—a narrative series of poems that shares many of the same fantastical and thematic elements of his fiction. Logan’s work has appeared in, among others, Hobart Journal, New American Writing, Meat for Tea: The Valley Review, and Great Lakes Review, which nominated his story “Bret Easton Ellis” for a Pushcart Prize. He has lived in San Francisco, Boulder, and Chicago, and now lives in Sacramento.
