About Ness, Editor



I’m a newspaper editor too stubborn to leave the newsroom. I enjoy how weird this has made my Google searches. I read lots of books — though the Pancake Sex Book Club has completely trashed my Amazon recommendations. I love good beer, better bourbon, video games, podcasts, cosplaying obscure characters, and the Oxford comma. Bell is my rivalmance. Trolling is my love language. I live on Twitter: @paperbytheton.
