Scott Thomas Outlar survived both the primordial fire and the cataclysmic flood – now he dances in celebration while waiting on the next round of chaos to commence. Otherwise, he keeps things pretty chill, spending the days reading, researching, feasting, fasting, taking meditative walks, gazing at stars, laughing at life’s existential problems, swinging to the rhythms of nature’s celestial song, flowing and fluxing with the waves of the Cosmic Tao River, and writing prose-fusion poetry, fiction, essays, rants, ravings, screeds, manifestos, and wild, hallucinatory, psychedelic meanderings through the dualistic mind dedicated to the Renaissance Revolution of the Phoenix Generation.
Scott’s debut chapbook, A Black Wave Cometh, was released in April of 2015 by Dink Press. Currently unavailable. A new print edition is scheduled for 2017.
Scott’s full length poetry collection, Happy Hour Hallelujah, was released in August of 2016 through Creative Talents Unleashed. Find out more about the book and order copies here at the CTU Publishing author’s page.
Another poetry collection, Chaos Songs, was released on September 1, 2016 through Weasel Press. Copies are available here.

But a bunch of numbers on tallied lists aren’t why he’s doing this…
