"Pulpy gobbets fanned out from the wound . . . "

Yeah. That's yer man, there.

More raves for Out of the Gutter 4, this time from UT Austin. We made the newspaper, The Daily Texan, in the Life & Arts section from June the 5th. Dylan Miracle's piece is Indie journal gets its readers' minds 'Out of the Gutter' and my story gets a plug. M.C. gets quoted!

I can't get Navin R. Johnson, Steve Martin's Jerk, out of my head. You know the scene--delirious joy when "the new phone book's here," declaring "this is the kind of spontaneous publicity - your name in print - that makes people. I'm in print! Things are going to start happening to me now."

Summer vacation is finally here. TPP will be cooking for the next two weeks and then go on 'holiday hiatus' until mid-July. We are southbound this year: Mexico. I'm not bringing a phone or a computer, and will avoid contact with both. Going to put the pencil to paper for the duration of the journey. We'll see what comes out.

Now that has to be truly gratifying: you and your pulpy gobbets were the only specific quote in Miracle's UT article! Well and grossly done! Congratulations!
