I’m a little away from my mental desk right now, for reasons that I hope will resolve themselves soon. In the meantime, though, the publication timeline for The Pacific Northwest Reader continues to advance, and Gigi Little over at ut omnia bene continues to post her awesome countdown. She did one for my piece here, and one for Matthew Simmons‘s piece here.
Two things about this:
1. I heard Matthew read from his surreal American roadtrip novella, A Jello Horse. In the section I heard, we visited The House of Two Thousand Telephones, and saw a herd of giant antelope devour Madison, WI. For reals.
2. His piece in TPNWR is about Bigfoot.
I think we can safely say, that’s going to be an essay worth reading.
Apparently you’ll be able to track these books down a little more easily than we thought at first–Barnes & Noble is picking up some copies. Although obviously you’ll want to talk to your local indie bookseller first…
Thanks for the great posts, Gigi!
