Everything is terrifying. Everything is gorgeous. Everything is a new shadow in New Oldestland by Guy Benjamin Brookshire. (Published by 421 Atlanta)
“Jesus imagines himself shoving the disciple off the sandal pile, of bringing the lions back and summoning a giant to snap the bones of his disciples, of scorching the entire desert from here to all-surrounding horizon, of making the disciples sandals turn to thorns. He imagines all of this, confident that if he really wanted to, he could do it, he could make it all happen.”
"As a younger man I would have been uncomfortable admitting how closely run the paths of religion and literature. Now I embrace their shared mission, even as their ends can be totally contradictory." - Scott Cheshire
Listen people…we’re gonna need more TV characters like this to break the stereotype that stoners don’t get out and exercise.
Scott Daughtridge interviewed me over at Fanzine about the end of Safety Third Enterprises. Topics included: Chapbooks, Michael Jordan, L. Ron Hubbard.
Endless fist bumps to Scott and Casey McKinney.
Even though Safety Third is officially over I will joining Adam Robinson (Publishing Genius), Gina Myers (Lame House Press), Bruce Covey (Coconut Press) on a panel about small presses on Saturday, August 30 at 10am at The Decatur Book Festival.
