HAPPINESS is Coming Soon!

Lacking only an ISBN but it’s booked.

Author Zack Kopp’s satirically objective, cartoonishly expressive latest, Happiness: In Dub (Camp Elasticity, 2022) gives a rich view of mental life in the Post-Truth Era full of sex, drugs, rock and roll, aliens, shadows, holy fools, and interdimensional contact.

Lucky joker Wally Jack Mack, conditioned by a background in freelance metaphysics and chaos thinking coupled with a disdain for politics, wants to know how reality works behind the scenes. His lifelong preoccupation with paranormal occurrence is complicated and punctuated by his ill-starred infatuation with extradimensional medium Kartinie Thinie . . . Wally Jack, Kartinie, his past self, poetry host Lightning Jerk, his sensible intermediatist friend Levin, his manic, noble sometime patron Gladstone  . . . these characters trade complimentary insults on the razor’s edge between allowance and annoyance, throwing sparks when they clash.

Composition of this history of wonders coincided with the Pentagon’s latest verification of Unidentified Aerial Phenomena, inspiring the inclusion in this book of a rich overview of alternative history in info-bytes, footnotes, and the occasional dedicated chapter. The footnotes appended to several chapters take this manuscript’s significance to an entirely different level than diverting readers’ attention with the tale of a freelance writer’s crush on an interdimensional alien channeler. Shadow Dump is a book about humanity’s forever unconsummated romance with the unknown, and the way it never stops. It’s a hybrid like that.

“You capture the disaster quite well in the story.”

―Mark SaFranko, Nowhere near Hollywood, Amerigone, others
