'''''Zygote in My Coffee''''' (often referred to simply as “''[[Zygote]]''“) was a popular underground literary magazine that published poetry, short fiction, social commentary, political rants, one act plays, erotica, comic strips, comic books, confessional pieces, metafiction/experimental, chapbook reviews, poetry book reviews, novel reviews, photography, artwork, interviews, movie & music reviews. ''Zygote'' was published twice a year in print and monthly online. [[Brian Fugett]] was the Editor-in-Chief with co-editors [[Karl Koweski]], [[Aleathia Drehmer]] and [[C. Allen Rearick]].

Tom Bradley was born in Utah during the era of above-ground hydrogen bomb tests, and claims to recollect seeing fallout in the air during kindergarten. In later life he met Edward Teller, inventor of the latter device, and was told "We had arms limitation from the very beginning. It commenced already with the second detonation." He lived in the People's Republic of China for many years and lost friends in the Tiananmen Square Massacre.

The author has stated that as an unintended victim of US nuclear testing, he gravitated to Hiroshima and Nagasaki, where his books and articles are stridently critical of the Japanese educational system. In the opinion of Israeli journalist Barry Katz, who writes for 3:AM Magazine in Paris, Tom Bradley deliberately courts controversy: "He does seem bent on leaving absolutely nobody unpissed-off. His venom’s no less ecumenical than gratuitous." Rain Taxi Review of Books expresses the notion as follows: "As proof of his leaving no one un-offended, he's been nudged out of every university where he has taught. For the past two decades he has lived the life of an ex-pat laugh assassin, tucked away in a volcanic mountain on the island of Kyushu".
