Bewildering Stories biography

Jack Phillips Lowe is a lifelong Chicagoan. Like Don Quixote, he went mad from reading too many books — so much so that he took to writing them.

Lowe’s work has appeared in Barbaric Yawp, Clark Street Review and The Bitchin’ Kitsch, among other outlets. His books include So Much for Paradise (poems, MuscleHead Press, 2000) and Pariah Tales (short stories, Onzo Imprints, 2007). Lowe’s most recent effort is Cold Case Cowboys (poems, Middle Island Press, 2013).

His influences include Carver, Brautigan, Bradbury, Italo Calvino and Bukowski. But most of all, Lowe was influenced by his late grandmother Genevieve, who never hesitated to tell him that he’s nuts.
