1. You have until this weekend to make a pitch for issue #6 of the High Hat. Judging from what we've gotten so far, if you get in, you'll be in very good company indeed.
2. Do you live in, around, or within a thousand miles of St. Paul, MN? If so, get your ass in gear and head for TEATIME AT THE TURF. It's a literary reading sponsored by Pindeldyboz and hosted by my gal ninafarina, who edits the website of said publication. The when and where: Saturday, Sept. 24th, 5PM, 21 and over, three bucks to get in, held at the thoroughly rockin' Turf Club (1601 University Ave. in St. Paul; 651.647.0486). Reward my gal's hard work, drink some beer, have a good time, and enjoy fine pieces by Alex Lemon, Charles Baxter, Claire Zulkey, Jason DeBoer, Jim Ruland, and my own meager self. Move heaven and earth to be there.
Thank you for your kind attention.
