JOHN SAYE is a writer who escaped death, five months on a ventilator, and total-body paralysis to bring you his brand of sarcastic surrealistic science-fiction and fantasy. His immune system tried to kill him, then attempted to burn his nerves away, nearly disconnecting his mind from his body. The treatment and slow nerve re-connections resulted in visions, dreams, nightmares, and numerous reality checks along the way, many of which are now working themselves into his stories.
