I was really happy to learn that Lucia Silver, the book buyer for Portrait of a Bookstore in Studio City, California, said some really nice things about Tunneling to the Center of the Earth on NPR's Morning Edition today. You can listen to the show and read about it here. She called the stories "Like the pen-and-ink love children of Aimee Bender and Lorrie Moore, or George Saunders and Amy Hempel." So, Ms. Silva, you move to the top of the "Who-Gets-One-of-Kevin's-Kidneys" list.

I've got a story in Avatar Review, which I'm really happy about. There's also a story by Charles Lennox, which allows me to segue into another topic regarding J.A. Tyler's very fantastic ml press.
For the month of June, J.A. is offering a free copy of "A Field of Colors" by Charles Lennox if you will email your mailing address to him. Go here for the full details. MLP does great work and I always look forward to getting the three chapbooks in the mail each week. I find the ratio is that I love two of them and I have no idea what the hell is going on the third one, but I enjoy trying to figure it out.
