Blog Like Me: Howard Waldrop

Mon 30 Jul 2007 - Filed under: Not a Journal., , | 4 Comments | Posted by: Howard Waldrop

Skeptical HowardStarting Tuesday we’re going to have a somewhat regular column-y/blog-y thing from that Master of the Typewriter, Howard Waldrop. Howard (author of tons of wonderful short stories, some of which can be found in Howard Who?) will type them out, mail them to us, someone here (or elsewhere, thanks Cindy!) will type them out, and we will try and post them once a week or so. Until one of us drops the ball.

Titled Blog Like Me, Howard will be writing on anything he damn well pleases. The first one, up tomorrow, is “Your (Manifest Destinies) Miss You” and is about recent TV ads, beavers, and the Louisiana Purchase, all tied together in that inimitable Waldropian manner.

    I love you people for doing this. I can’t wait for tomorrow.

    Thanks, Jeremy! It’s too hot to think of anything smart to do with our time and getting Howard to write for us seemed like it would save us from having to do it.

    Cool! Howard and I once worked together as lab rats in Austin, subjects of some auditory recognition testing. We’d sit around during obligatory rests between tests telling jokes and playing word golf.

    No problem Gavin! Looking forward to reading the final versions here =).
