My third column, The Word, is now up at ManArchy. We talk about a fantastic graphic novel, 100 Bullets, spending time at your local library, Aeon Flux, one of the best animated series ever, Ramen Noodles, and remembering to spend time with your daughter. Go check it out.
I have a second column up at ManArchy. This one covers a fantastic collection by Matt Bell, Cataclysm Baby, as well as my thoughts on BBQ, Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, and Wild by Cheryl Strayed. Head on over for more information.
So, I always leap at the chance to work with brilliant and talented people. So when Pela Via asked me to do something for ManArchy Magazine, I said, “Sure. Watchoo want?” We talked a little bit about it. I already do book reviews for The Nervous Breakdown, and a column on writing for Lit Reactor. So what else could we do? I still wanted to talk about books, if possible, as well as other cool things that have been informing and infecting my life, and my writing. We ended up with THE WORD. The first column talks about Sriracha, The Olympics, Adventure Time, Justified, and The Rumpus Letters. I hope you enjoy it, and while you’re at it, spread THE WORD. Ha, see how that worked out?
