Some Good News

I'm big looking forward to appearing in the second print issue of Pangur Ban Party along with the following cats: Nathan Logan, J.A. Tyler, Josh Kleinberg, Michael Hessel-Mial, Adam J. Maynard, xTx, David Peak, Martin Wall, Adam Moorad, Ben Brooks, Ana Carette, Greg Santos, and Mel Bosworth. Big thanks DJ...

The new elimae is live. Some of the highlights for me are David Erlewine, Kimberly Ruth, Mel Bosworth, Adam Moorad, J. Michael Wahlgren, Nora Nadjarian, David Peak, Kendra Grant Malone, Nicole Elizabeth and Joy Wood. That's a lot of highlights. This is the last issue with Cooper editing elimae solo, as I'm sure everyone knows by that Kim Chinquee, my former prof., has assumed editorship of fiction and creative nonfiction while Coop is still editing poetry, literary essays and reviews, and interviews. Cooper is awesome, and Kim is awesome, so they'll make a wonderful team...

Also, I just got my copy of Mel Bosworth's "When the Cats Razzed the Chickens" in the mail, and I'm big digging the look and feel of this chap. My favorite story, if I had to pick one, is "Leave Me as I Lessen," which was nominated for a Pushcart, though my beard would have to chose "Xyrophobic Me," which originally appeared in PANK. Congratulations, Mel...

Also, I'm big looking forward to reading Greg Gerke's There's Something Wrong with Sven. I think I have a piece appearing in Artvoice soon, so I thank Greg for the book and for scooping up one of my pieces. Too, Kim Chinquee just had a story in Artvoice last week along with Ken Sparling. Great stuff...

Great post, Eric, and many thanks for the love and the shout. Someday our beards will have to hang out and drink lots of caffeine.

Hi DJ, I'm big excited. It's a great line-up. Thanks again...

Hi Mel, no doubt, though I'm off everything, including caffeine (and I miss it big), but I'll gladly guzzle some decaf to your regular...

Hi Ethel, I hope so. Bring it on, indeed...

Hi x, me too. MF Doom sampled lots of things from Scoobie Doo on his first album, "Operation Doomsday." Great stuff...
