Hi Daniel, I have always been a fan of your books, but especially The Snarkout Boys and the Avocado of Death. I loved Baconburg and all everything about its odd and surreal and awesome nightlife. By any chance is Baconburg, or places in Baconburg such as Beanbender’s, based on a real city? If it is I really have to visit!



Daniel replies:

I guess it is partially based on Chicago, but a long time ago. Possibly if you visited Buffalo and Cleveland you might get a little of the flavor--or possibly not.
