Author Chuck Palahniuk's Promotional Porn Ventures

Plenty of authors are shy about pimping themselves -- but not Chuck Palahniuk, the subject of a Q&A conducted in advance of a May 22 event at the Tattered Cover LoDo. His website is a hype spot par excellence that currently lavishes attention on his latest book, Snuff, via t-shirts and even video clips ostensibly starring Cassie Wright, the porn queen whose decision to film herself doing the horizontal mambo with 600 men in a row provides an impetus for the novel's skintastic action. Click above for an example -- a faux preview for a Wright flick called Twilight Bone. It'll transport you to another dimension. -- Michael Roberts
