We Need to Talk About Kevin and Alan

  Night number 2 of our February N@B double header features Caleb J. Ross, the sicko at the center of the latest Booked Podcast. Robb and Livius give a whole hour to Ross's books I Didn't Mean To Be Kevin and As a Machine in Parts. Get your mitts on a copy and get that sucker vandalized by the author Feb. 28th! 
You know another podcast that caught my ear this week? The Other People podcast hosted by Brad Listi interviewed Alan Heathcock who confesses for the record (about fifteen minutes in) that he regretted he didn't make it to St. Louis in 2011 for Noir at the Bar. Y'know what, Al? Me too. So, c'mon, don't be sorry like Heathcock, get your ass to Meshuggah Cafe in St. Louis for a N@B event whenever the hell they happen.

And a big heartfelt congratulations to N@B star Matthew McBride whose Frank Sinatra in a Blender will be released (in print!) by New Pulp Press later in 2012. That's fuckin sweet, dude. Y'know what else is? Eddie Vega and Cort McMeel's Bare Knuckle Press have plans to publish not one, not two, but three Scott Wolven novellas electronically with a print omnibus to follow. If that's not a hot cuppa for your worn, chapped soul, you're reading the wrong damn blog.
