I initially mistyped that as The Bling Assassin

Ducklings, I’m sorry. I’ve been busy enjoying my life and editing our upcoming titles, and have fallen behind on posting contributor news, so I’ma write this long-ass post and hope y’all will click through every one of these delicious links.

 

But first! If you live in Nashville, a couplethree events you should know about:

We’re having two readings this coming Saturday June 1st for Apocalypse Now: Poems and Prose from the End of Days, at 11 am at the downtown library (Conference Center, Main Library First Floor, 615 Church Street, Nashville, TN; FB; NPL; Nashville Scene) and at 2 pm at East Side Story (1108 Woodland Street, Unit B, Nashville, TN; FB). Join Chet Weise, Tessa Mellas and Maggie Smith for readings from the end of days! Maggie Smith is the author of Lamp of the Body, Nesting Dolls and The List of Dangers. Trapeze aficionado Tessa Mellas is a lecturer at the Ohio State University. Chet Weise, the force behind the local Poetry Sucks! A Night of Poetry, Music, and All Sorts of Bad Language reading series, was once banned from Canada for playing rock-n-roll without a permit.

And speaking of Poetry Sucks!… I will be reading at their open mic night on Thursday, June 6th at Dino’s Bar and Grill (411 Gallatin Ave, Nashville, TN 37206; FB; Nashville Scene listing). They begin at 8 pm and end at 10 pm. Dino’s is very smoky so people with allergies may find it hard to take, but they have to-die-for cheeseburgers and fries and Poetry Sucks! is always a ridiculous good time with a great crowd. My portion will be 5-8 minutes long and I won’t know where I am in the line-up til that night. They turn off the grill when the readings start so you’ll want to arrive by 7 pm if you want to eat.

“The Romantics and the Bohemians wrote poems to impress girls and get drunk–exactly what Chet is trying to bring to Nashville.”

Hi there peeps. I took the day off from my day job today so I could work on URB stuff, and I’m really excited about some of the stuff we’re bringing into the world in the next fews months, not least Signs Over the Pacific and Other Stories and The Mask Game. I’ll be working on The Mask Game cover art in the next few weeks.

This afternoon I stopped at East Side Story and met their proprietor, Chuck Beard, and dropped off some copies of Apocalypse Now: Poems and Prose from the End of Days. Chuck posed for a photo (below).

Lots of news to report! For Apocalypse Now: Poems and Prose from the End of Days contributors: a review of The Happy Zombie Sunrise Home by Margaret Atwood and Naomi Alderman is up at The Toronto Review of Books; Booklist Online has a new cute, contentless interview with Paolo Bacigalupi; Davis McCombs received the 2013 Laman Library Writers Fellowship; reviews of Daddy Love by Joyce Carol Oates are up at Pop Matters and The Times; and Chet Weise is featured in the latest issue of Native (check out page 35).
