Come on out to the launch: "It's The PAC'N HEAT Launch Party! Come celebrate with us at See-Scape on Thursday Nov. 10th from 7... Continue Reading →

My first published poetry collection and other stuff.

On August 8th I received word that my poetry manuscript, "There Is No Escape Out Of Time" has been accepted by Insomniac Press. It will be out sometime in Spring 2016. Needless to say, after years of sending out manuscripts and working away at it, I'm a ball of excited emotion about this. Take a... Continue Reading →

On day 39 of hand writing James Joyce’s Ulysses

It takes me two times longer to write it out by hand than typing out A Portrait of the Artist. I'm not even concerned about its legibility either. If I was then add several... Continue Reading →

“I cannot dictate to a stenographer or type,” Joyce wrote to John Quinn in May 1917. “I write all with my hand” (LII: 396). Three years later the manuscript of the “Wandering Rocks” episode, sent to Quinn from Paris, was to refute this claim, as it is written in both Joyce and Frank Budgen’s hands.... Continue Reading →
