Chuck Tingle is a gift to humanity

I have been reading all about him since the Hugo awards thing (mostly via ffa) and have actually been tempted to purchase some of his oeuvre, especially this most recent one:

Pounded By The Pound: Turned Gay By The Socioeconomic Implications Of Britain Leaving The European Union

"When Alex learns that Britain has decided to leave the European Union, he’s shocked by just how normal everything seems. But the calm doesn’t last as Alex is suddenly accosted by a giant living coin from the not so distant future.

In this horrific future where Britain has left the EU, four story busses lie strewn about the streets of London after a failed plan to cut costs, the Queen’s Guard have been replaced by flying reptiles with machine guns and the River Thames runs red with molten lava.

Now Alex and his handsome sentient pound must travel back to the past and sway the vote for European solidarity, by proving that all you need is love."

I'm actively rooting for him to win that Hugo now.

The more I see of this guy's oeuvre, the more I admire him for embracing his interests and using them for good. :D
