Insane-O-Tron is a hilarious trip into the absurd and surreal, with stories about a family-themed TV show gone wrong, inter-species dating, a talking haircut, trick-or-treating with a candy wizard, magical dancing ponies and an earwig’s day trip to the gutter. These stories are insane!
Insane-O-Tron is a collection of six short stories about unexpected characters in crazy situations, with plenty of action, adventure, Sci-Fi, fantasy, friendship, family and romance.
Nick Alverson is an artist of many talents. He's the writer of an awesomely ridiculous book called Insane-O-Tron, he writes screenplays, an absurd blog called Nick's Noodle, he makes funny videos, draws truly terrible pictures and makes halfway decent music from time to time.
Nick originally hails from Reno, NV and now makes his home in Los Angeles, where it never snows and the warm climate keeps his creative juices at just the right viscosity.
Nick really wants to make you laugh. If it's with his absurd writing, crazy videos or funny songs, if you're laughing then Nick has done his job.

If you're a young earwig, there's nothing quite like the thrill of climbing on to a large pile of floating shit and pretending its a pirate ship.
“Look! Look!” Bob said excitedly, “Let’s play pirate ship.” Ernie’s eyes lit up like it was Christmas morning when he saw a large black dog turd come floating down the Gutter. The turd was a big one, and to the eyes of a small bug it looked gigantic. It stank of day-old decay and rancid death. It left a noticeable oil slick in its wake as it slowed to a meandering crawl.
