Scott Stalcup received his MA in Communication Studies from Northern Illinois University in 2015. He valiantly continues to finish the dissertation for his English PhD. Some may wonder why it is taking him so long considering his long list of publications, including articles and book reviews for the likes of ELN, Studies in Popular Culture, Gothic Studies, The Journal of Mind and Behavior, and even a few book chapters, including his most recent in the anthology Time Travel and Television on the UK comedy Red Dwarf. If approached in the wild, it is best not to get him on the subjects of the Ramones or Joy Division, and whatever you do, NEVER mention J.G. Ballard.
