    He used over 20 pen names while cranking out pulp fiction for Badger Books.
    His preferred method of writing was to narrate his thoughts as they came into a tape that was then transcribed by the publisher's secretaries.
    This technique would sometimes result in a character being killed off only to reappear without explanation in a later chapter.
    Since Badger had a strict policy on book lengths, some of his novels wrap up the loose ends with a sudden deux ex machina, while others were blatantly padded to reach the needed length.
    He performed an exorcism on a car with '666' in its license plates.

    He is a member of Mensa.
    He is a qualified martial arts instructor.
    Asked about Sinead O'Connor becoming a priest, he replied, 'I would say if the church can find space for guys like me, it can find room for everyone.'
