Updates, Sandwiches, and The Pains of Living with Genetic Brain Damage

I will be signing some books and probably reading some stupid stories at Backlist Books in Massillon, Ohio, along with D. Harlan Wilson, Michael Arnzen, and John Edward Lawson this Saturday (March 6) at 3PM. If you're in the area, come join us.

Morning is Dead is now available.

Author Cameron Pierce wants to write something somewhere because his house is filled with cobras.

The Sorrow King is coming. The publisher, Cargo Cult Press, had a change of ownership and its publication has been delayed. Delayed but not canceled. I have no idea when it will actually be published but it's still available to order. Yes, it's expensive. I know it's expensive. The publisher knows it's expensive. Everyone in the world knows it's expensive.

My brother has determined we have genetic brain damage. We are both doing our best to cope with this recent development. Send wishes to andersenprunty@hotmail.com or admin@outfallchannel.com. Paypal donations to those addresses are appreciated also. It's hard for brain damaged people to make money in this current economy and anything helps.

I will probably be doing a reading at a coffee house in Dayton with Patrick Wensink, author of Sex Dungeon for Sale! Details to follow.

You should have mentioned that the genetic brain damage was exacerbated by the deplorable conditions of the village where you grew up.

Andy said...

Well, yes, it has everything to do with where I grew up, where I live, and the genes I inherited.

Nathaniel Lambert said...

The ol' nature/nurture argument. I think the brain damage is from the earwig that Bones put in your head aboard the Enterprise.

Andy said...

I think that was a Star Trek reference...

Nathaniel Lambert said...

That's from a movie? Shit ... no more making my own drugs in the lab.

Andy said...

Jenkem will mess you up, Lambert.

OMG AP IZ GBD'D!?

No, let's not talk like that. It's messed up.

Thank you for telling people about the cobras in my house. I am trying to cope. Having a Prunty on my side helps me cope. The power of Prunty Hope. Pope.

Congratulations on the release of Morning is Dead. I have $10 in store credit at Powell's. I will go there next week (or tomorrow) and order a copy of Morning is Dead.

Nope.

Coping with cobras is catstrophic. I once had a cobra in my car. I had to send the car off a cliff. I still think about that cobra.

Anyway, hopefully you make it to the Sylvia Beach. It sounds like a writer's dream. I'd like to make it out there sometime. Here all we have is a Holiday Inn with one room consisting of a man dying of cancer and another room featuring a man vomiting into a trash can. Which isn't to say that's not inspiring...

I will be making it to Sylvia Beach, staying in the hostel, and it's all thanks to people like you.

Someone sent me links to two songs today and I think you might like them, so I'll pass them on:

Mumford and Sons - Little Lion Man: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xd8tOAJMA8Q&feature=channel

Xiu Xiu - I Luv the Valley Oh (ignore the visual part of this one): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t7iEyvvrP6k

The only thing I ask is that the next time you get a haircut, you donate it to me.

My brother's a big Xiu Xiu fan, so I've heard a lot of his stuff. The title of his latest is great, but I can't think what it is off the top of my head. I'll have to check out the other one.

Just checked at Horror Mall for The Sorrow King, and wow, is that sucker expensive! Were you aware of this?
