A busy October awaits

October is going to be busy. My first personal essay (in quite a while) is getting published and should be coming to a news stand near you. The inaugural issue of Catamaran is coming out. Also, we’re starting to practice for our event at SJSU on October 10th. More news soon. http://cactuseaters.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/default

Matthew Parker’s Larceny in my Blood — and the Cactus Eaters! — featured in The Millions website

Now get a load of this.  This eye-opening interview appears this week in my very favorite web-based literary magazine, and this interview just happens to include a mention of The Cactus Eaters. Anyhow, I thoroughly enjoyed Matthew Parker’s hard-hitting, honest and funny book, which was published this month.Oh, and there’s one more thing I want you to see: Wolf Larsen’s beautiful song, “If I Be Wrong,” featured recently on NPR. Here’s the link to the song and video. Anyhow, I am glad to report that I am following up my recent TC Boyle interview with a Wolf Larsen Q and A. Stay tuned! By the way, I almost forgot to mention that the TC Boyle interview will appear, in print version, in the upcoming debut issue of Catamaran, which will also include a very brief essay I wrote about Boyle’s work. http://cactuseaters.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/default
