James Frey & the Imaginary Author Photo

How do you photograph an imaginary author?

Novelist James Frey and Jobie Hughes co-wrote I Am Number Four under the pseudonym of “Pittacus Lore.” The author photo for the imaginary author of the YA book is pictured above (via Howard Huang)–click to enlarge. What do you think of Frey’s first offering from his fiction factory?

Here’s more from the official site: “I am Pittacus Lore. I am from the Planet Lorien, three hundred million miles away. I am one of ten Elders who lived on our planet. I am ten thousand years old. Everyone on Lorien was gifted. We are incredibly strong, incredibly fast, and we are born with powers called legacies. Despite our powers, the Elders, responsible for the defense of our planet, failed.”
