The Blacksmiths for Literary Progress will have our own table at the 21st Annual Indie & Small Press Book Fair. We’ll be featuring new books and zines (and possibly old lamps, used furniture, and rusted cutlery) from Brian Cogan, Mike Faloon, Tim Hall, Karen Lillis, Ben Tanzer, and Ken Wohlrob. We’ll also have some free books to give away. Do stop buy, say hello and take home some damn good independent lit.

I’ll be joining Chicago’s own Ben Tanzer at Freebird Books in Brooklyn this Sunday to celebrate the release of his new novel, “Most Likely You Go Your Way and I’ll Go Mine.” We’re going to kick out the stories and have a few drinks with all our good friends who can make it to the reading. Show time is 7pm.
Ben Tanzer and the nice folks at This Blog Will Change Your Life recently posted some nice praise for The Love Book. And I quoteth:
“…while love may be the operative word here, we’re not sure anyone would call them love stories, per se. Now that said, are these stories all about how love gets warped, lost, manipulated, sublimated, twisted, fetishized, tainted and occasionally celebrated? Yes, and more. And so do we think you should you read this collection? Yes, again, for sure, so, go ahead, please read The Love Book, it just might change your life.”
And a gratuitous reminder, you can come on down to Freebird Books in Brooklyn, NY on Sunday, September 28 to see Ben and myself kick out the stories to celebrate the release of his new book, Most Likely You Go Your Way and I’ll Go Mine.
On Sunday, September 28 @ 7 p.m., I’ll be joining Chicago’s own Ben Tanzer for a special reading at Freebird Books in Brooklyn to celebrate the release of his new book, Most Likely You Go Your Way and I’ll Go Mine.
