Who is this man of mystery...T.S. Minton?
Here's what some notables have remarked over the years...
"You're gonna gain as name for yourself as a writer and artist."
Jack Kirby, comic book pioneer (circa 1993).
"Rarely are we graced by such a savant, one erudite in the many disciplines
of art...Steve is a virtual literary lion with his myriad published poems, sonnets, and treatises."

AS A WRITER...
"A gifted lyric poet."
- Dr. Jon Klimo, Rosebridge

Prof. Tom Goldpaugh, PhD., English Department, Marist College, Poughkeepsie, New York http://www.marist.edu/liberalarts/facviewer.html?uid=40

renegade former academic."

Thodal Soule (Steven) Minton is the founder
and publisher of Interfusion Press (formerly Eleusinian Press), and an artist and writer whose work has received much acclaim.
His work has spanned across many mediums and genres...
He started the irreverent, iconoclastic arts/literature "zines" Hieroglyph Gumbo (1991
- 1993, while at Boston University) and Whoof Session (1995), which featured the work of superb poets, fiction writers,
visual artists, and photographers from across the United States, including Daniel Calabrese, Sita Rose, Chiara Caballero,
and Nico Vosloo.
A sort of childhood prodigy at comics and cartooning, he also has developed works, over the course
of four decades, in styles ranging from surrealism/abstraction and psychedelia to figure drawing and realistic
oil painting. He recently has launched bold experiments in abstract sculpture and visionary futurism,
as displayed at Tucson's Solar Culture gallery. Soon these pieces will be showcased in the Lulu.com book "Neo-Humans
on Regenerative Earth."
Steve devoted over a decade, starting in the mid-90s, on feverish study into UFOs and unknown mysteries.
He was a guest host and 4 year "guerilla research partner" of Ted Loman's Off the Record, the legendary paranormal
investigative and interview program on community cable access TV.
He holds a degree Magna Cum Laude With Distinction in English from The College of Arts and Sciences
at Boston University. His incantatory, sublimely inspired poem Cascabel Meditation: Sunrise has been a underground classic, hailed by former Harvard University English professor Barbara Jackson
as "one of the most remarkable bodies of work I have ever encountered."
Hid forays into internet publishing have been recognized by poet Ernest Slyman, and many others
followers of his fecund creativity ...
He lives in Tucson, Arizona with his daughter Jasmine, and a cat or two (or three).
