Munroe was managing editor at the magazine Adbusters in the 1990s, before publishing his debut novel Flyboy Action Figure Comes With Gasmask in 1998. The novel was put out by HarperCollins, a major publishing company owned by Rupert Murdoch, and though the book was successful, Munroe so disliked the experience that he launched No Media Kings as a venue for publishing and promoting his own works independently, and a guide to self-publishing for other prospective writers.
In 2000, Munroe released Angry Young Spaceman through No Media Kings. He followed up with Everyone in Silico in 2002, which was promoted partly by Munroe's attempt to invoice corporations mentioned in the novel for product placement. An Opening Act of Unspeakable Evil, a novel written in the form of blog entries, followed in 2004. Munroe's most recent work is Therefore Repent!, a graphic novel set in post-Rapture Chicago.
Munroe is the founder of Perpetual Motion Roadshow, a North American indie touring circuit for writers, performers and musicians. He is also a former video games columnist (2003—2005) for Eye Weekly, an alternative weekly newspaper in Toronto.
Jim Munroe, the science fiction author, should not be confused with Jim Munroe, the American magician.
