Omissions, submissions, Mission of Burma

I know I'm supposed to be working on the edits for my poetry book, but I couldn't quite get there yet. So I spent some of yesterday and today assembling and formatting all the uncollected short fiction I've got around and making a manuscript and sending it off to a publisher who has shown interest. So now — including my novel, the title of which I'll never tell you, and Dead Cars in Managua — I have three book manuscripts out there in the world. So this is what it's like to be rob mclennan!

I've heard from Brian Kaufman at sub-Terrain that the new issue is out, with my latest Hunkamooga column, a sort of nostalgic meander into the reading (that I'll admit to) of my teenage years.

My Hunkamooga columns up till 2005, which mostly appeared in the print version of Word, are gathered in this little number, from Anvil Press, the book arm of Brian's monolithic publishing empire:

The lovely cover is by Clint Hutzulak.

As for Mission of Burma, I've barely heard them, but my wondrous buddy Joe likes 'em, so they must be good!

Over and out.

So, any chance a New Confessions will be appearing? I like your non-fiction as much as everything else (which is to say, considerably).

I like the new layout! And yes, I echo every word of Amy's call for Confessions II: More Rants from the Racketeer.
