ABOUT

With 25+ years of experience working for newspapers and news agencies in the
U.S.A. and Europe, Thor Garcia trains an X-ray eye on media propaganda and the
occult-obsessed overlords pulling strings behind the curtain.
Garcia’s books include THE NEWS CLOWN: A NOVEL (Equus Press, 2012) and
the story collections ONLY FOOLS DIE OF HEARTBREAK (Equus Press, 2013)
and TUND (Litteraria Pragensia, 2010). A resident of Prague, Czech Republic for
more than 20 years, he has been named one of the “14 Prague Writers You Should
Know.” Garcia has performed his work at dozens of readings and festivals and
published scores of short stories and articles on the DEATH SEX WAR GOD
blog. His stories have appeared in The Drill Press, Dogmatika, Paris Lit Up
magazine, Akashic Books’ Mondays Are Murder Series, The Next Best Book Blog
and VLAK. His work has been translated into Czech and published in The New
Presence and Revolver Revue. Garcia’s work has also been published in the
collections The Return of Král Majales, City Primeval: New
York—Berlin—Prague and Pornoterrorism.  He was lead singer and songwriter for
the Prague rock band Face Tigers.
Garcia was born in Long Beach, California and has worked as a journalist in Los
Angeles, San Francisco, New York City and Prague. He worked for 19 years as a
reporter and editor for U.S.-funded Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty before being
fired in a raw political purge in 2014 after he protested the station’s crude
propaganda campaign over the Ukraine crisis. Garcia opposes all political parties,
social campaigns and cultural movements of any stripe, believing them thoroughly
corrupt, infiltrated and compromised from top to bottom.
