Thomson Guster has clocked many hours in America's most popular stress position—sitting at a desk, pretending to work, refining his hatred, banking on the revolution. As the recipient of the 2010-2011 Kelly Writers House Junior Fellows Prize he managed, edited, and published HEAT MAP # 9, a fictional punk fanzine covering the secret histories of music that doesn't exist and the millenarian obsessions that inspire it. Other work has appeared in the pages of Strange Attractors: Investigations into Non-Humanoid Extraterrestrial Sexuality and the spring 2014 issue of Bedfellows magazine. Enduring interests include bugs and the buglike, exhausted forms of rock'n'roll, and ways that continuity errors, editorial mandates, and commercial interests structure history and fiction alike.
