Pseudonym of US poet and author Ronald J Christoffel (1953- ). His novel Hammers (1997) describes in a somewhat gonzo literary style the transformation of five characters into hammerhead sharks (see Biology). The novella Mantids (2008) is a darkly humorous updating of Petronius's Satyricon. [JC/SH]
