post-hibernation gigs!

Dear Friends,

I have a blitz of news here:

1. GIGS: I'll be reading at Track 16 Gallery, Sat., January 22nd, at 7pm as part of SLAKE: LOS ANGELES--A CITY AND ITS STORIES issue two launch party. Full info to come on separate post...

I will also be reading for SLAKE at Hotel Cafe on Sunday, January 30th, at 6pm, ditto on the full info
That very night, I'll be reading as part of the wake for the decade-long and ass-kicking Smart Gals Speakeasy, info coming ASAP!

2. I've been working on a forthcoming anthology for Akashic Books of all new fiction about the drug speed; the tentative Speed Chronicles will feature ALL NEW stories by Sherman Alexie, William T. Vollmann, Jerry Stahl, Megan Abbott, Natalie Diaz, Beth Lisick, James Greer, Tao Lin, Rose Bunch, Jess Walter, myself, and more--watch for updates! The book is scheduled for Fall 2011.

3. I've been working with Oriana Small, AKA Ashley Blue, on editing her memoir of her years as an adult film actress, Girlvert: A Porno Memoir. It's not one of these sugarcoated celeb-porn glossy Hollywood wannabe books, but a straight-up, tell-it-like-it-is killer human story of one gal's experiences of pushing her body and mind to the maximum. Coming from Barnacle in April...

Hope everyone out there is well!
