Independent film studio Troma Entertainment, has released their second book of fiction, PESTS, with publisher Bear Manor Media on the imprint Bear Manor Bare.
From the twisted minds of Lloyd Kaufman of Troma Entertainment, Jordan Young, and Regina Katz comes … PESTS! A titanic story about Phil, a down & out underdog exterminator, and the freak accident that changed his life. Phil decides during his convalescence that he will use his newfound power for good – – and disrupt the corrupt corporate film interests that threaten the only things he’s ever loved: movies. This book explores the seedy underbelly of the Hollywood elites and plays against the notion of what or who the troublesome “Pests” of our society really are.

About Jordan Young: Jordan Young is a 30 year old, grizzled pessimist who occasionally sees glimmers of hope. He is a passionate advocate of independent art and film, and fundamentally thinks that when art offends you; it’s doing something right. He went to school for creative writing (ekphrastic poetry specifically), and has dabbled in film, video game, music, Visual Art and TV criticism writing sporadically for Medium, Unwinnable, Wild Sound, and the now defunct PopCults. He’s tried the whole blog thing, and didn’t really love it; he also dabbles in film production.
He is currently happily married and living in Ridgewood, Queens NY.
About Bear Manor Media: “BearManor Media is a book publishing company founded by Ben Ohmart in 2001. Specializing in media-related biographies, BearManor Media is located in Albany, Georgia and Duncan, Oklahoma. Ohmart developed his back list of almost 600 titles because of his own frustration with the publishing industry: “I started this publishing company in 2001, as a writer. I learned how hard it was to tap into the mainstream market with what is essentially nostalgia fodder. So I published The Great Gildersleeve myself. Then I learned something important. I seemed to enjoy the publishing side more than the writing side, so, when I began to get offers to publish other people’s work, I began doing what I love full time.” Since then, the company has grown by leaps and bounds, expanding to include books of scripts, episode guides, film reviews, and celebrity interviews. Well-known authors of BearManor Media autobiographies include actor Charles Napier, voice actress Jean Foray, director James Sheldon, percussionist Emil Richards, dancer Miriam Nelson, child actresses Beverly Washburn and Sybil Jason, musician Al Lerner, and Dale Evans’ manager, Dick Baxter.”
