Scrud formt

Birkensnake 2 is out now, in print and online, with a slew of rad new work from Joyelle McSweeney, Evelyn Hampton, Danielle Dutton, Michael Stewart, several others. The issue is both available free to read online and in print handmade for $4. They do a wonderful job with the object, for the price it can't be beat. Plus I hear the covers were burned with a blowtorch, for real.

My story, a newer thing called 'From now on all I'll talk about is light' is readable here.

You can read the whole issue here

It is part of the Glyph Atlas story collection I am thinking about thinking about aligning in the next 1-3 years.

Scorch Atlas preorders are shipping this week from Featherproof, and are in Barnes and Noble and Borders all over, as well as indie stores and the like.

Until the official release day of 9/9 you will be able to get the hand destroyed copies from Featherproof if you order there. These objects will not be available after that day, so order now if you want. Plus it's only $10 from there, while list price is $14.95. Yar.

I ate page three of the book the other night but the shot is really dark and I burp a whole lot through it because I am drinking Diet Dr. Pepper, I may upload it later. Eating will continue. And you too.

The Scorch Atlas remix book is almost done, we have a winner, we have several selections to be printed, should email this week and let those know they've been selected, etc. The eBook is gorgeous and has some crazies in it.

About 50000 words into a new novel, I think it's going to be at least double that when I am finished, I feel like dying mostly

I have a

I don't know what I'm talking about much.

Try eating half a spoonful of cinammon and half a spoonful of honey after you eat the next page, then upload it onto YouTube.

I promise you'll have 2,000,000 hits in an hour.

I have had 'Atlas' ( The book is out now so abbreviation is acceptable in text conversation) sitting on tables while I sip coffee and work at coffee shops. People tend to stare at the book. I look up and they look away fast but the smell of their gaze is still strong on the book. A few people have come up and just began touching the book. They say very little. I think they hope the book will make their fingers dirty or their palms worn like it was just rescued from a fire where I said, "I saved the book. I want some coffee."



matt, that sounds good, you should bring a lighter and burn them when they go for the touch

I'm going to remind you that EVER gave me a migraine and almost made me pass out in the shower.

This is not an exaggeration.

I've got high hopes for some real contact again.
