See Ya Later, Aggregator


I have been meaning to do at least a token post on another topic, but I keep never getting around to it and in the meantime more King Dork stuff has appeared just waiting to be aggregated. And who's going to aggregate it, if not me? So herewith, some more link aggregation (with apologies to those who prefer posts on other topics. Your day will come.)

(a) There was a nice review in the Sunday San Francisco Chronicle. My entire family saw it.

(b) Clive Davis wrote a swell review-essay on King Dork in the Washington Times.

(c) Here's a review from Popmatters, with some pretty good advice at the end, because they do indeed.

(d) Aversion has posted this Q&A.

(e) Here's a capsule-blurb type thing in a wire-service "reading roundup" that has been making the rounds. That should bump up sales in Grand Fork.

(f) Here's a sweet review from bookblog Lorem Ipsum; I talk about my favorite movie here, kinda in exchange for this plug.

(g) I've got a few more shows/appearances/happenings lined up, including Seattle and Portland. Details to follow...

What's the photograph?

I was going to ask, since you're clearly the RB expert: do you agree that Tom and Katie's new baby is/will be the antichrist? It's a matter of much debate around these parts.

And yeah, those shirts are rad.

Read the book, wasn't happy with the ending. No logical reason for whole hospital bedroom thing and the kiddie porno thing was just way too random and rushed. Funny book though, just last half was way to jumbled.

I actually really liked the ending. Congratulations on writing a great (and well-received) first book. Now forget about this Seattle business and come to New York.

seriously frank, the general public needs to advertise how much of a genius sam hellerman really is.

Portland? Cool!

The kiddie porno was one of the best parts.

I hope that statement doesn't come back to bite me in the ass.
