This Saturday at 7pm I am reading at a bookstore, Ada Books, with Sir William Walsh, author of Without Wax.

Ada books is in Providence, RI; specifically at 330 Dean Street where it crosses Westminster.

Please come.

I have a new story up at Hobart called The Hook. It's a terrible title, I know, but an homage to Claudia Smith. I wrote for MiPo's "Hooker" issue, but forgot to send it.

I have stopped writing. Maybe you've noticed.

A big apology to all SIR! contributors for not getting the issue up when I said I would. Things have piled up into a wall. And the heat doesn't help. But hold tight. I will make it worth the wait.

If you go to We Heart Four Things, you can read an interview with me. Blake Butler, Kathryn Regina, and Zach Schomburg are also interviewed.

Attached to each interview is some new work by each author. Two new poems of mine, called Teenage Sorcery & Hobby Horse are included.

I have an admiration that is real for all three other authors. I also have an admiration for Shane Jones who included me and did the interviewing. He did a splendid job. The interviews are short and personable and nice. The work is stellar. Thanks Shane.

Thank you to everyone who has bought my book. That was very kind of you. Thank you to everyone who wrote about or mentioned it. And thank you for all the nice comments and support posted here. I had to delete my mom's comment for her extreme use of the word "dickwad."

We can't have that kind of language in here.

If you haven't yet got a copy of The Tornado is not a Surrealist, there are still some available here.
