Now this next paragraph I am just copying and pasting here, from his official biography, as I want to make sure you will not think that I have lost my mind and am hallucinating, so here it is word by word : For eight years, Robbins was an enthusiastic participant in Seattle's SPAM carving competition, serving as judge. He has also hosted an annual mayonnaise tasting.
I don’t know what does that say about him, but it must say something. Right?
I often use the word bizarre when I talk about authors from that niche of semi fantastic realism, but in the case of Robbins it will not be the right word. No, bizarre will be too heavy of a word. No, he was just weird. A really strange guy telling stories from his version of reality, without even noticing he is weird. And that, is nothing less than charming, and makes his books so much more delightful to read.
