DANIEL NESTER is the author of How to Be Inappropriate, described as "a deeply funny collection of booger-flecked nonfiction" in Time Out New York. Nester's first two books, God Save My Queen: A Tribute and God Save My Queen II: The Show Must Go On, are collections on his obsession with the rock band Queen. A third, The History of My World Tonight (BlazeVOX, 2006), is a collection of pretty good poems. He is also editor of The Incredible Sestina Anthology. His writing has appeared in such places as The New York Times, The Morning News, Salon, The Daily Beast, The Rumpus, McSweeney's Internet Tendency, and the Poetry Foundation website, and anthologized in such collections as Lost and Found, The Best American Poetry, The Best Creative Nonfiction, Third Rail: The Poetry of Rock and Roll, and Now Write!
