Let's start with the book blurb. Shall we?

Meet IT worker Phil Small: he's stone crazy and set on a dark path toward fascism. He's also about to
become a true American hero.
Upon his release from the seedy Surrey Behavioral Center, where the voices in his head fought to take
control of his life, Phil mistakenly believes he’s won the battle. Fellow psychiatric patient Sylva Glade
moves in with him just at the point where Phil is diagnosed with Hepatitis C.
Taking place before the development of such recent Hep' C cures Harvoni. Mavyret and Sovaldi, Phil is
forced to take the agonizing, semi-effective Interferon cure, whose side effects prove worse than the
disease itself and ravage Phil entirely, stripping him down to a virtual human skeleton. Now finding Phil to
be of little use, Sylva leaves him for a better meal ticket. As the vicious Hep' C treatment progresses, the
ceaseless voices blend with a continuous stream of cable news and convince Phil to become a fascist as
his ultimate destiny.
Phil meets liberal leftist Esther Shill during a street scuffle with a cop. She helps him through his
murderous treatment and drags him to a lecture on politics given by neo-fascist anti-Semite Shlomo
Blankfein, leader of the Public Choice Group. The clouds part and Phil finally gets the clarity he needs.
He joins Shlomo’s merry band of fascists and delights in their plan to wreak political havoc on the
“libtards.” During a fascist-driven riot at a pro-government rally, Phil is arrested and wrongly identified
(with help from Shlomo) as the local AntiFa (Anti-Fascist) ringleader. Suddenly famous, Phil sets out to
make AntiFa look as bad as possible, quoting fascist doctrine at media appearances But things never
seem to go Phil’s way. Instead of sabotaging the AntiFa agenda, he becomes their hero. Try as he might
to say and do all the WRONG things, Phil just seems somehow to keep getting them right.

Interview with Gary:

  1. If you had to give up either snacks and drinks during writing sessions, or music, which would you find more difficult to say goodbye to?

Definitely snacks and drinks. When I write, I want the music ungodly loud.

  1. Which is your favorite season to write in, and why?

Winter – when I’m less distracted by the light of day.

  1. If you had the opportunity to live anywhere in the world for a year while writing a book that took place in that same setting, where would you choose?

Prague. It’s the most beautiful city in the world. How could I not write a beautiful novel there.

  1. Picture this: You feel uninspired and you’ve sat at the computer for an hour without conquering any words. How do you get your creativity flowing?

That’s an easy one. I look around my living room, pick something and write a sentence about it. I don’t like it, so I have to correct it and write another sentence to make it work. Then that sentence isn’t quite good enough and requires a rewrite… And before I know it: a page! Then I just keep going until dark.

  1. What has influenced you the most as a writer?

Reading. I always think, “I can do better than this.” And I set out to do just that.
