We lost contact with Mr. Hammerstead a few years back, and have continually received returned royalty checks every time we’ve tried to pay him. That said, this is what little we know about him:
Leon Hammerstead lives in an RV. He travels the country, often staying in national, state, or city parks. He writes a wide variety of stories, some focusing on his travels and others derivative of his own imaginings. He’s a quiet man. He was also more than mildly frightening the first and (thank God) only time we met him. He tried to buy Chris from Twit Publishing for a can of chili, then threatened to cut Craig when he didn’t take the deal.
Leon recently submitted a new story, one which will be included in the latest PULP!. According to him, and where his checks are going, he’s living somewhere in Florida. That’s about what we know.
