Iron Mike Gellman was one of the Web's first bloggers, creating the medium before it had a name. With his antisocial essays published at the eponymous TheIronMike.com, he's been compared to David Sedaris and Larry David and Chuck Klosterman and Chuck Palahniuk. He is the author of the cult classic, Battery Acid for the Soul, and its long-awaited follow-up, Spew. Iron Mike Gellman is based out of Denver, Colorado, where he's a notorious fixture in the local underground.
