I CAN READ! REALLY! I CAN!


Things have been landing in my hands of late. Good things, perhaps great things, things to read, things to walk with, things to snooze beside.

Here are a few of the awesome things that have come my way in recent days...


NOO #10. I managed to grab the last copy at Northampton Coffee today. I also grabbed a black tea. Yummy. Big ups to Mike Young. Looking forward to reading this on my favorite chair. Heh. Heh heh.


Most Likely You Go Your Way And I'll Go Mine by Ben Tanzer. This came from the awesome Jason Behrends of Orange Alert. He also sent along some extra toys and trinkets. Even more awesome.


Dead End Road by Richard Wink. I'll probably never meet Richard Wink, but if I did, I think I'd try to give him a bear hug. I'm not sure why. Maybe because he published an ad I wrote for my old Blazer at Gloom Cupboard. Or maybe because he seems like one of the kindest, coolest cats around.


Lastly, Scorch Atlas by Blake Butler. Yes, it's time to see what all the buzz is about. Next week Mr. Butler will be reading at Schoen Books in South Deerfield, Massachusetts. I shall be attending. Come watch me slide tackle Blake mid-reading. It will be LEGEND.

...But on a serious note, thanks to everyone who labored over the production of these works, from root to fruit. I can't wait to dig in. My autumn is looking...good. And my eyes are hungry.

Paper. Mmmmm, paper. Be sure to review these once you've digested them.

And if you're going to slide-tackle people, be sure to wear your helmet.

J: paper good. mmmmm. i'll cough up reviews at some point. i'm sure they'd all say, "words good."

G: No sweat, brother. Enjoyed your work at PBP. Funny and good. Killer combo.

And here I thought you were just joking when you said you bought a copy of Most Likely. Thanks so much for the support. I look forward to your thoughts.
