Insane-O-Tron is a hilarious trip into the absurd and surreal, with stories about a family-themed TV show gone wrong, inter-species dating, a talking haircut, trick-or-treating with a candy wizard, magical dancing ponies and an earwig’s day trip to the gutter. These stories are insane!
Insane-O-Tron is a collection of six short stories about unexpected characters in crazy situations, with plenty of action, adventure, Sci-Fi, fantasy, friendship, family and romance.
Nick Alverson is an artist of many talents. He's the writer of an awesomely ridiculous book called Insane-O-Tron, he writes screenplays, an absurd blog called Nick's Noodle, he makes funny videos, draws truly terrible pictures and makes halfway decent music from time to time.
Nick originally hails from Reno, NV and now makes his home in Los Angeles, where it never snows and the warm climate keeps his creative juices at just the right viscosity.
Nick really wants to make you laugh. If it's with his absurd writing, crazy videos or funny songs, if you're laughing then Nick has done his job.
Nick is an ordained high priest in the Church of the Latter Day Dude.
Peter Hunter is a piss poor civil engineer. Some of his low lights include a road with alternating patches of pavement and gravel, a stop sign on a freeway, and a car jump over a two thousand foot canyon instead of a bridge.
Truth be told, Peter wasn’t a very good engineer. He often submitted designs that were wildly inappropriate for the intended use, like the freeway roundabout that had caused a thirty-eight-car pile-up the day it opened. He also had a reputation for cutting corners and doing sloppy work. This didn’t really matter to his boss, though, because above all else Guy cared about money, and Peter’s designs, while shitty, were bloated with cost overruns that gave Guy a chance to skim plenty for himself without anyone noticing. For that reason Guy kept giving him work.
