Jack and Mr. Grin



From the author:

Description: Jack Orange is a twentysomething guy who works at a place called The Tent packing dirt in boxes and shipping them off to exotic, unheard of locales. He thinks about his girlfriend, Gina Black, and the ring he hopes to surprise her with. But when he returns home one day, Gina isn’t there. He receives a strange call from a man who sounds like he is smiling—Mr. Grin. He says he has Gina. He gives Jack twenty- four hours to find her.

What follows is Jack’s bizarre journey through an increasingly warped and surreal landscape where an otherworldy force burns brands into those he comes in contact with, trains appear out of thin air, rooms turn themselves inside out and computers are powered by birds. And if he does find Gina, how will he ever survive a grueling battle to the death with Mr. Grin?


"When Mr. Grin calls you can hear a smile in his voice. Not a warm and friendly smile, but the kind that seizes your spine in fear. You don't need to pay your phone bill to hear it. That smile is in every line of Prunty's prose." Tom Bradley, author of Lemur

Context 21

I'll be attending Context 21 in Columbus (Sept. 26-28). I'll be there all day Saturday and part of Sunday.

For those who have been waiting for Zerostrata and Jack and Mr. Grin, no, you're not hallucinating or missing it, they haven't come out yet. No real worries or reasons for the delays. The books are finished and with the publisher. This is the small press, sometimes there will be delays. But they should be out soon. Zerostrata will actually be out before Jack and Mr. Grin. If you're a reviewer and you're interested in reading a PDF of either of these, send me an email at and I'll hook you up.
