Jeffrey Shaffer

"Keen-edged and pointed rapiers, slicing and skewering sacred cows and modern sensibilities alike."
—Portland Oregonian

Wall Street Journal, Baltimore Sun, Detroit Free Press, Seattle Times,

Oregon Public Radio, and The Oregonian. He lives in Portland, Oregon.

I'M RIGHT HERE, FISH-CAKE, with drawings by Paul Hoffman. Thurberian prose, lots of twists and turns, and a wild but not quite woolly imagination combine to make this writer's humorous tales fresh, funny, and sometimes a little sad. If you're tired of repetitive, predictable, and sophomoric humor, Shaffer is the guy you've been looking for.

"Mind candy that's actually good for you, high in intellectual fiber but easy to digest."
Publishers Weekly

IT CAME WITH THE HOUSE, with drawings by Paul Hoffman. Shaffer's second collection of on-the-wall stories.

$13.95 paper, 192 pp., illustrated, ISBN 0-945774-36-2. Also available as an e-book.

"In usually five to six pages, Shaffer manages to build a credible though twisted world
where anything is possible, from investment-advising canines to insurance adjusters
in Godzilla's wake. . . .  He makes writing stories like this look easy-an incredibly difficult task."
