Book Description

"This is such a great little story!"
-- Lainie B

Former New York Times Bestselling author Stanley Cox is desperate. His five-year-long writer's block has plunged his career, and his life, into a downward spiral. A last-ditch search for a cure brings him to a lonely Mexican barrio, where an old man promises to rejuvenate his mind with a special substance. How far will Stan go? Is he willing to pay the ultimate price and try--BRAIN FOOD?

BRAIN FOOD contains explicit language, sexual content, and graphic violence. For mature readers only.

About the Author

J. Joseph Wright penciled his first novel in the fourth grade, but, after failing to publish it, toiled away in obscurity until his freshman year in high school. Upon reading and, inexplicably, enjoying one of J.'s witless essays, his English Comp teacher, a man of questionable taste, recommended he write for the school newspaper. Soon J. was regaling the student body with a fantasy horror fiction column, gaining a robust early fan base, albeit from a captive school audience.

After college, J. left a highly lucrative career in television for an even more lucrative career as an author, and now writes Paranormal Romance, Horror, Science Fiction, and Fantasy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun and fast read October 7, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was a super lucky find for me, saw a tweet from the author mentioning Brain Food, at the moment I was super sluggish and though to myself "That's what I need", clicked on the link and after reading the description bought the short story on Kindle.

I decided to take a quick peek at the story and before I knew it, I read it all! The description says it all, Stanley Cox is desperate, lost it all and needs something, anything, to get ideas in his head and start writing again.

The plot itself is predictable, it reminded me of Twilight Zone episodes, and those type of episodes I can watch over and over again, they can be very entertaining, and so is Brain Food. I'm impressed with the author and plan to read more from him.

4.0 out of 5 stars An Enjoyable Short Horror Tale February 2, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A brief look at a desperate man who has an overwhelming need to be a bestselling author.
When his livelihood dries up and things start to fall apart he turns to the world of the supernatural for a fix.
I enjoyed this story's examination of dark desires which can lead to darker outcomes.
I recommend this book to 'adult' readers of horror short stories.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great bite-sized bit of horror April 25, 2013
By James B
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The things that struck me most about Wright's story were his colorful descriptions and his driven, concise plotting. You can feel the main character rushing headlong into some bad juju.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great story! October 20, 2012
By Lainie
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is such a great little story! But, everything that I've read of this author is so great to read. His novel, "Tribe of the Teddy Bear", is not just for kids. Terrific story----I can't wait for the next one in the series!!
