At present, Travis is working on a novel about a fast-sinking metropolis, a sasquatch who moonlights as an avant-garde sculptor, and the magic of art. His first novel, Where the Devil Don’t Stay, is a bildungsroman of class rage and knitting circles set in the post-9/11 South. It is available only in his musty desk drawer, which may or may not be for the best.

To tide you over while he works on the new project, here are a few short stories he’s written under various names:


Travis has twice written book-length manuscripts of nonfiction, once for a a dissertation committee and once for everyone else:

  • The Bohemian Horizon: 21st Century Little Magazines and the Limits of the Countercultural Artist-Activist — Dissertation for a PhD in Communications at Columbia University — 2016 — Available at CU’s Academic Commons

  • Authentic Occupy: Occupy Wall Street and the Politics of Authenticity — Thought Catalog — 2013 — Available via Amazon and Audible

He’s also published a number of essays over the years, mostly at Blunderbuss Magazine, where he served as Editor-in-Chief from its inception in 2012 until its demise in 2018. Here are a few of his favorites:
