He is the author of The O Mission Repo (vol. 1), an erasure of The 9/11 Commission Report, and N7ostradamus, a book of Oulipian prognostications; recent chapbooks include Hoop Cores (Knives, Forks & Spoons Press), Time (Stoked Press), Sight & Sigh (Beard of Bees), BAR/koans (Erg Arts) and Title Bout (Shadow Mountain Press).
