Haven't been here for a while! But all good things have been happening, most of all this: "Gibbons’s 'The El Rey Bar' brilliantly conveys the chaos, the hopelessness, and the despair engendered during an L.A. riot."

It's here! It's arrived in its very heavy box and is now resting in my greedy little hands! I feel like victory laps and champagne! And I confess I did just skip down the corridor, LSE is still in shock.

These should be shipping today! Which means I'll have a box of them relatively soon, and that thought makes my knees wobble just a little!

But nicest is all is my translation of Paco Ignacio Taibo II's "Bizco's Memories", from SEND MY LOVE AND A MOLOTOV now available as well! The excitement is building... (you have to register I'm afraid, but it's free!)

Story
Tagline
I like to write, preferably in pubs, editing Switchblade is pretty good too
Introduction
Buy Send My Love and a Molotov Cocktail: Stories of Crime, Love and Rebellion at PM Press. I edit the noir Switchblade imprint, blog for popular education website www.drpop.org, fight evil with Lambeth SOS, serve as an editor for City! journal, and you can see what I'm up to academically and non-fictionally here.
Bragging rights
Faced down a javelina, won $20 in a cumbia contest, picked jojoba beans for money (you best appreciate that shampoo), organized tenants in South Central L.A. and got a slumord convicted on 21 criminal counts, helped start a Land Trust, sold underwear, filed mining claims, finally writing like a demon and god but I love London for it
