It's tonight, suckas. N@B 8pm at the Delmar Lounge in the U. City Loop. Come check out the post-Appalachian stylings of Pinckney Benedict, author of the brand new short story collection Wonder Boy & Other Stories, as well as two previous collections Town Smokes and The Wrecking Yard and the novel Dogs of God.
Also on board is Laura Benedict, author of Isabella Moon and Calling Mr. Lonely Hearts. Laura also edited with Pinckney, the anthologies Surreal South and Surreal South '09.
Rounding out the lineup is Sean Doolittle, author of Safer, The Cleanup, Burn, Rain Dogs and Dirt. He never edited an anthology, but he's appeared in some good ones including Blood, Guts & Whiskey which'll be available tonight.
I'll read something myself. Unfortunately, Scott Phillips can't be with us tonight, he's out of town on family business.
And did I mention it's at a bar? The more you drink, the better we sound.
