Peter John McLean : welcome

My name is Peter John McLean and this is my website.

I’m currently working on a book called Cow. Opening with an inflatable cow and ending with a job promotion, the book spins in a circle around two young men chasing ambitions and unraveling, and then chasing again. It takes place in a slow-decline dystopia where the most popular show is a YouTube cooking channel called Sergei’s Kitchen.

Those who have read it have had pretty good things to say about it and I expect to be finished on January 7, 2018, when James Nulick and I will swap manuscripts.

I’m also working on a novella called Calvin, about a man-child being bullied by a sentient low-budget monster made out of carpet and aluminum cans. So if you run an indie press known for hardcore street credibility, posting bail for authors, engaging in blood oaths, or just producing really cool literature, hit me up. If your name rhymes with Hammerin’ Fierce, then you should definitely consider it. Just saying.




Also check out this awesome story I wrote for Fluland called Catholic is Way Too Much.

A couple years ago I wrote an article about the dangers of donating plasma.

I have been told that this story is the best thing I’ve ever written, though I hope that isn’t true.

In 2013 I wrote an article about discovering Haruki Murakami’s writing.
