12/10 After Happy Hour Review Reboot Reading @ Howlers

Posted in Events with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 10, 2019 by 6GPress

7PM TONIGHT…

Since there was no fall issue to launch in 2019, the AHH editors thought this would be a great chance to celebrate the journal’s history and put a face to some of the new names on the masthead.

In that spirit, yinz are all cordially invited to a reading Tuesday, December 10th.

Among the readers are current and former editors, past contributors, and local literary folk whose work matches the aesthetic we look for in the journal.

As always, the reading is free and open to the public (and, oh yes, there will be snacks). So come on out to Bloomfield’s friendly neighborhood dive to help us celebrate the journal’s evolution!

8/13 Hard Times Blues Tour @ EEBX

Posted in Events, New Releases with tags , , , , , , on August 6, 2013 by 6GPress

Here’s what Dan Parme (author of Hungry, a funny, dark & whimsical tale of murder, foolishness & gastronomy in the 412) had to say about Hard Times Blues:

Tales that manage to be funny, dark, whimsical, and more than a little trippy are always trips worth taking. Hard Times Blues is like a journey through the woods in a world that vaguely resembles this one–strange new wildlife peeks at you through the trees, and you can’t even imagine what you’ll find at the heart of this forest, but isn’t that part of the fun? Cotman has laid an enticing path before your feet. Following it would be a wise, and thoroughly entertaining, decision.

As would coming to the East End Book Exchange on the appropriate day, at the appropriate time, with the appropriate beverage of your choosing. Dan & Jess Simms (currently polishing off the first volume of a trilogy about bisexual immortals & the conspiracies who love them) will blow your mind, then Elwin will completely destroy it. For free. If you have to work, quit your job. If your house is on fire, it’ll probably still be on fire when you get back. Whatever your excuse, it won’t fly harder than the Spruce Goose.
