About Mykle

“Mykle Hansen is, quite honestly, sort of nuts, and that makes his writing wonderfully unrestrained and, strangely, so clear…Like David Sedaris meets that British comedian Eddie Izzard.” – Elizabeth Miller


Mykle Hansen’s inability to have a normal reaction is key to the popularity of his strange fiction and neo-gonzo journalism.  He is the author of the tragic comedy HELP! A Bear Is Eating Me!, the acclaimed short-story collection Eyeheart Everything, and Rampaging Fuckers Of Everything On The Crazy Shitting Planet Of The Vomit Atmosphere, winner of the 2008 Wonderland Book Award. Hooray For Death, his latest effort to cheer you up, arrives in January 2012.

A jack of all trades since birth, Mykle Hansen still tries to spend most of his time writing.  He lives in Portland, Oregon with his wife and daughter, in an orange castle surrounded by a moat of man-eating chickens.
