Or, yes, tomorrow, as the case may be. Birmingham 2NDHANDers will remember Burian and Sneider from our November book fair at Greencup, or from their respective work in the mag, including Burian’s excellent “Zangara” story, featured in issue 19, about the 1930s assassin of former Chicago mayor Anton Cermak, and Sneider’s “Mole” story featured online. They’ll be appearing with punk poet Bucky Sinister; I read with him in San Francisco in 2006 on my book tour, and let’s just say the man delivers his work with a verve akin to the joy any young boy might feel running through a chandelier shop and breaking many things. Tortured, I know. Sorry.
Come out to Greencup (105 Richard Arrington South) tomorrow for the reading, which is followed by several quite excellent bands, including Japanther. Stay for them if at all possible. Please.
