The Team I Rely upon
Greg knows he wouldn’t get a fraction of the things done he wants to if it wasn’t for his awesome crew. I’ll let them describe themselves in their own words.
Bud Ugly is old, crotchety, and highly opinionated. He speaks several languages, all of them poorly (including English). He suffers from the delusion that his degree from an online diploma mill in some way qualifies him to be an editor; to date, the rest of the editing team has been too nice to point out his inadequacies.
When not harassing authors, Mr. Ugly teaches (think Pink Floyd’s “Another Brick in the Wall”), annoys his wife, spoils his grandchildren, and sits on his front porch in a wife-beater telling the neighborhood kids to stay off his lawn–not necessarily in that order.
In reality, Mr. Ugly is a retired business executive who holds degrees from two of the universities mentioned in the Stupid Boy books. And his house has no front porch. The rest is true.
XofDallas(or X to his friends), when not fire spinning or otherwise terrorizing people at Renaissance Festivals and camps, likes to spend time suggesting story and plot ideas to Greg. He also attempts to muzzle some of your humble author’s crazier ideas and to keep his feet somewhat grounded in reality.
X uses his remaining spare time [doing something] in the soup, which is loads of fun, is mostly harmless, and frequently improves the flavor of the soup!
Zom as an only child, doesn’t mix well with people who don’t run away on sight.
His plodding anal nature finds a synergy with proofing, which he hopes to be good at one day.
TheMikeBomb is a middle aged bookworm who suffers from an inability to see past typos and continuity errors. This led him to volunteer to try and clear them up in this epic series he couldn’t stop reading. Mike hopes his contributions to the effort are useful.
