outrageous shocks manageable Salon New York Times bestsellerIntroduction by New York Times bestselling author and famous minor television personality John HodgmanOne of my dads favorite jokes about getting older was I went out for coffee when I was twenty one and when I got back I was fifty eight I get what he meant now Time flies My first book, If Chins Could Kill Confessions of a B Movie Actor, was published back inand it chronicles the adventures of a mid grade, kind of hammy actor my words , cutting his teeth on exploitation movies far removed from mainstream Hollywood This next book, an Act II if you will, could be considered my maturing years in show business, when I began to say nooften and gravitated toward self generated material Taking stock in the overall quality of my life, I fled Los Angeles and moved to a remote part of Oregon to renew, regroup and reload If that sounds tame, the journey from Evil Dead to Spider Man to Burn Notice was long, with plenty of adventures mishaps along the way I never pictured myself hovering above Baghdad in a Blackhawk helicopter, facing a pack of wild dogs in Bulgaria, or playing an aging Elvis Presley with cancer on his penis how can you predict this stuff The sheer lunacy of show business is part of the fun for me and I hope you ll come along for the ride Bruce Dont Call Me Ash Campbell
