Mysterious Book

This question is not likely to be answered, but it is very interesting to see the way Uclue researchers have tackled it:

I'm trying to find the name of an author I discovered because his books were next to George R. R. Martin's at Hayden Library in ASU. I am pretty sure
his name was (something) R. R. Martin (First name maybe Steve or Steven?), but if that's not exactly right it must be extremely close because his books were on the same shelf as George R. R. Martin's.

Unfortunately, I can't recall any specific details about the books, other than that they were utterly bizzare collections of poems/stories which were usually in the second person and present tense ("You are walking down the street. You see a man with a red hat who tells you about a secret castle")

This doesn't mean that other such book/author questions cannot be answered on UClue:

* Need author of books on supertanker terrorism and Chinese mini-sub invasion of New York

* Name of children's book about time travel/potato famine/smoking chimney/wolves?
