"Not just anyone can be a writer. Ink slingers are a special breed that adhere to an inner calling; that voice inside their heads that drive and torment them until they capture their thoughts on paper. What is written and how it is expressed usually depends on an individual writer's personal history, experiences and interests. As a prison writer with 20 years of incarceration under my belt I naturally write what I know the most about, prison. It is my sincere hope that what you are about to read captures the true essence of prison writers, the men and women of the steel cages who push the Maximum ink."
-Gregory J. McMaster, from JPP Vol. 10: 1 & 2 (1999)
