Still Alive Kirk My Old Friend

Wednesday, November 23, 2011

Still alive and still thinking that blogging is not a terrible idea. I've been posting at this blog for 8 years. It's never been the most popular blog but has outlasted so many that someday some eager young thing will contact me to ask me "WHAT WAS IT REALLY LIKE" to do something as creakingly ancient as BLOGGING.

'Tender Young Shoots' March 2010 Issue

Friday, March 26, 2010


Rumble Magazine releases it's March 2010 issue. Compact fiction by Chloe Caldwell, Len Kuntz, Alyssa Martino, and Abi Wyatt. Also, J.A. Tyler reviews Words by Andy Devine.

Hilarious discussion at HTML Giant about who is the best rapper. Embarrassing for those revealed to be douchebags. As for me it's all about the ice.

Man Posts To Own Blog

Tuesday, December 08, 2009

I haven't posted here in a while. I've had nothing to say, really, and I've been busy with Rumble Magazine and traveling to the great state of Wisconsin to see my brother get married to a nice girl who will bake potatoes for him. This occurred in Bayfield and was cold but beautiful and I liked it.

Nothing published recently but someday I will write something and have it published if you really want me to. I'm serious I'll do it.

Shoplifting From American Apparel

Thursday, August 20, 2009


Tao Lin has a novella coming out on September 15 called Shoplifting From American Apparel. More info and early reviews here.

I've read good and bad things about this book but being familiar with Tao's writing I think it will be worth checking out.

Gene Morgan's Twitter Feed Press

Monday, July 27, 2009

Gene Morgan has started an ingenious new press utilizing the Twitter app. So far he has published 3 or 4 things, two of which I like very much. I know others are writing novels via Twitter but this is the first publishing venture that I know of.

You can find it here.

It's super neat. Nice job, Gene.

It has been 5 years since we started Rumble, the web magazine of microscopic fiction and poetry. Our new issue will celebrate this fact by being ultra mega awesome, or whatever. It's due out in about a week, so check it out and become impressed by its awesomeness and lovely, crinkly edges.

New Rumble Magazine, May 2009 Issue

Sunday, May 24, 2009

The newest issue of Rumble is online now. New fiction by Michael Doherty, Paul Lynch, David Miller, Meg Pokrass, and Wayne Scheer. Poetry by Ricky Garni and Dennis Mahagin. Assuming I am not killed in a horrible car crash we will celebrate 5 years of Rumble in July. Feels pretty good. I have no free t-shirts to give away, in case you were wondering.

The newest issue of Absurdist Monthly Review is also available for download. I had nothing to do with that. But it's good, very good.

Action Plan! @ Bewildering Stories

Monday, March 30, 2009

A very short something called Action Plan! is published at Bewildering Stories. It's been rejected a few times by editors who didn't like it. I always liked it. It contains very detailed instructions. Follow them to the letter.
