Cole Stryker will be reading at Difficult to Name on Saturday, Nov. 11

You're moving to L.A. Is it jut for the screenwriting opportunities, nice weather, increased space, fewer number of journalists you have to run into at parties or do you have a real reason for going?

Those reasons are all high on the list, but the main thing is my wife wishes to be closer to her family out West. But yes, glitz, glamour. I'm talking about the pictures, baby. Showbiz! 

What have you worked on in 2017 that you're most proud of?

I am working on a novel about a libertarian tech billionaire who builds a "startup country" in the middle of the Pacific. 

What can people expect from your reading?

A sliver of an unpublished novel about a guy who thinks Y2K is going to be apocalyptic. A few laffs, maybe a few gaffs.
