in conversation with John Langan
Big thanks to everyone who rocked up to the virtual launch of The Measure of Sorrow, hosted by Meerkat Press last weekend. For those who couldn’t make it (or you hardcore types committed to watching the “Director’s cut”), here’s the full-length unexpurgated conversation, including Ohio, Kafka, black lakes, book burning, famous dead people, deep-fried platypi, Tina Turner, passing references to the collection, and big-ups to other people’s awesome books. Hope you can check it out!
Huge thanks to John for being a great host, an irrepressible conversationalist, and an all-round stand-up guy. If you’ve not yet read his latest collection – Corpsemouth and other Autobiographies – I insist you rectify that immediately.
ICYMI: Aaron Dries, Dan O’Malley and I had the great pleasure of spending a dark and very stormy Halloween night talking horror and all things scary at the Woden library. And even if the rain kept you at home, you can catch it all on the video below (courtesy of FriendFace).
Ariadne, I Love You and The Attic Tragedy double book launch
In both 2020 and 2021, I released books into the wilderness of social distancing and lockdowns. Though we held some excellent online events to celebrate at the time, nothing compares to the vibe of a reading in a room full of people. Kaaron Warren and Aaron Dries were kind enough to help me pull this together at the last minute. Wine was quaffed, conversations were had, books were read and sold. A fine time was had by all.
