To his self-deprecating astonishment he's also been nominated for the Story South’s Million Writers Award twice without sending the judges so much as a thank you note. He co-edited the satiric transgressive fiction collection D*CKED: DARK FICTION INSPIRED BY DICK CHENEY and his debut novel KOKO TAKES A HOLIDAY is out now from Titan Books.

I just read an email announcing this. God, I am such an insane fan of this movie. Homage to Chandler's The Big Sleep? Who the hell cares? It's brilliant. Must have seen The Big Lebowski, I don't know, nineteen times? Not as much as Jaws (37 times), but I freakin' own the DVD. Speed of Sound Tour, that just kills me. Tickets go on sale for the DC events this Friday. Check for your local city Lebowskifest here and, dude? Make sure you stock up on Kahlua, vodka, and plenty of dairy creamer. Half a lid of deep wooded kush might be a good idea too.
Oh yeah. And this NY Times story kind of creeped me out this morning. Didn't the Waffen SS do this? Something called...oh nevermind.
