Short biography
Th. Metzger studied infinity and the fourth dimension with Rudy Rucker in the 1970s. He has since committed a number of bizarre investigative and novelistic forays, including Shock Totem, Drowning in Fire, This is Your Final Warning, The Birth of Heroin, and Blood and Volts. He lives in the Burnt Over District of New York State and is a student of the the area's lost spiritualist history. Metzger refers to his Flurb piece "Seized by Meat" as "Carnaleptic Communiqué #1." There may be more communiqués to come.
