Mental Problems and Coffee

Following up on her reviews of Exponential Apocalypse and Dead Presidents, author Jennifer Hyndman had a couple questions for me. Well, OK, one question: “What in the world were you thinking?”

My answer includes the following:

You know how, when you were a kid, you kept all your toys in one box? And sometimes you pulled out a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle, but he was missing a head, so you just jammed He-Man’s head on there because why not, and then you gave him a laser rifle and had him fight a bendable Rowdy Roddy Piper and a herd of plastic, not-to-scale dinosaurs? That’s my brain.

Plus this:

Mental problems. And coffee.

Plus at least four other full paragraphs. It’s illuminating, unless, of course, you wanted an actual answer.
