Gregory Borse is an Associate Professor of English and Philosophy at a small university in a large university system in the Midwest. He has previously published an anthology on World Literature (Other Canons: A Selection of Non-Western Literary Masterpieces, FountainHead, 2012) as well as a chapter on Hitchcock's "Psycho" and Stephen Frear's "The Grifters." He has presented on Shakespeare, Jane Austen, William Faulkner, as well as the Oral and the Literate in the Age of the Internet. He is married and resides with his wife and some of his children (those who have yet to reach escape velocity) and a very smart heterochromiatic Border Collie, appropriately named Bowie. The Incorruptibles is his first novel.

I have completed my final review of The Incorruptibles: A Novel, and have returned the edited manuscript to my publisher, Isabella Media. This means that next steps are graphic design and a release date for publication! I will update you very soon when we have fixed that very important date.
As an aside, I completed my editing yesterday, September 27th--just after midnight.
I had not intended to do so much work on it in one day (I had taken up my editing on page 279--of a total of 534 pages in its current format), but, well, it was just so good I just kept going and when I looked up, I was finished! The following morning, I received an email from one of my younger sisters (Linda) on the occasion of the fifth anniversary of the death our father, Alan K. Borse. After reading her beautiful tribute to our dad, I smiled: No wonder I finished after midnight, I thought, Dad was standing at my shoulder the whole time!
