Brad Jones, also known as The Cinema Snob, has written his first book! His introductory novel combines 1980s high school horror pictures and post-apocalyptic action movies. Jones is using his expansive knowledge of cinema’s sinful past by meshing tropes and genres together to create something that will hopefully be entertaining: Class of ’86.

We invited Brad Jones to the show this week to talk about his inspiration for Class of ’86 and his experience writing his debut literary work.

Class of ’86 will be available in ebook and physical formats on July 7th. You can pre-order it directly from Amazon.

Check out our previous interview with Brad and other members of Channel Awesome here.


“Six friends are ready to graduate high school; only they are down to the wire on finishing a research paper for their chemistry class. Their plan is to steal an idea from Fletcher, the smartest kid in school. When their cheating doesn’t pay off, they retaliate with a prank that may lead to deadly consequences. As the years go by, and political tensions cause a post-apocalyptic wasteland, they must take shelter in the one place they will have to confront their past and survive by any means necessary.

As we pointed out in the interview, writing a book is not an easy task. Getting your thoughts onto the page can seem overwhelming if it’s your first time. If you’re struggling, I’d suggest checking out this article from MasterClass.

Thanks to companies like Amazon, publishing your work is now easier than ever. However, if you want to get your writing out there in a more traditional sense, Penguin Random House has created a guide to help you.
