Hertzan Chimera lives!

Background Information

I started out as a figurative artist and have been writing my kooky blend of sci-fi/fhorror/anti-narrative for the last 20 years.

Here are some quotes (from my Hertzan Chimera days):
"Hertzan Chimera is destined for great fame -- solid gold planes and caviar squeezed from endangered fish. Know him! Embrace him! And ultimately -- worship him!" -- Mark McLaughlin, author of GOSSAMER EYE and MOTIVATIONAL SKRIEKER.
"Hertzan Chimera is both monster rant and taboo heat. His primal work clutches me in both G-spot and brain--and everywhere else in between." --Charlee Jacob, author of THIS SYMBIOTIC FASCINATION and HAUNTER.
"When I say that Hertzan Chimera's writings make me want to throw up, I mean that only in a good way. He's a major contender in the gross-out arena; his work is a hallmark of creative outrage." --Edward Lee, author of CITY INFERNAL and MONSTROSITY.
"Hertzan Chimera is the Henry Miller of Our Time. He has remortgaged the Horror/SF ghetto, replacing it with a Garrethouse of the Psycho-Erotic on the Left Bank of the Seine." --MF Korn, author of RACHMANINOFF'S GHOST and CONFESSIONS OF A GHOUL.
"As a longtime fan of the outre and fiction of the abject, I can say that very little of what I read anymore shocks, revolts, scares, or disturbs me. But Hertzan Chimera manages to do it every time. " --Michael A. Arnzen, Bram Stoker Award winning author of GRAVE MARKINGS and FREAKCIDENTS.
"Chimera's conflagrations raze cities of the human mind while his sickly dogs twitch in the burning bones of entropy." --James Havoc, author of RAISM and SATANSKIN.
"Hertzan Chimera and I raided the panty patch together from 2002-2004. During that time he screamed, bounded, lacked, compensated, and innovated. He kept things interesting, which is more than you can say for any hundreds of authors combined." --John Edward Lawson, author of Last Burn in Hell
My new books are gonna supercede the amoral grand guignol of the old Hertzan days.

Additional Information

My first short story (well, a prose poem) was published in the New York journal Dreams & Nightmares back in 1985. My first novel RED HEDZ was published in 1990 by Creation Press. Since then I have been ploughing my own writing furrow. I love collaborating and have created short stories with some of the most exciting writers in the small press today, here's the list of co-writers, ready? DF Lewis, MF Korn, Alex Severin, Paul Pinn, Charlee Jacob, David Kopaska-Merkel, Mark McLaughlin, John Lawson, Greg Wharton, Vincent Sakowski, Simon Logan, Dawn Andrews, Destiny West, Brutal Dreamer, Queenie Tirone, Amy Grech, Christina Sng and Vanda Ashante. I detest the mainstream. I cannot understand how such Franchise Writing can satisfy the creative needs of the writer. I am originally from the north of England. I have a French wife and a daughter aged 8. We currently live in the quaint English town of Oxford. I speak some French, a little German and some Japanese.
