This weekend I'm hanging out with all sorts of cool people

I'm doing two events this weekend. Friday I'm in Chicago for Brain Frame, reading from Rage of Poseidon (a few copies were shipped in for the event – currently available NOWHERE ELSE). With Anya Davidson, Keilor Roberts, Jeremy Tinder and more.
 Then I get swallowed by a giant mechanical bird and regurgitated in New York for the Brooklyn Book Festival. I'm on a panel on Sunday with Audrey Niffenegger and Frank Santoro talking about myth, fable and how to draw togas and talking birds.

I recently did an interview with Andreea Saioc for the Global Panorama about The End. I don't blame anyone for skipping it – the sad violins have been on repeat, lately – but the conversation's second half turns to a slightly deeper than usual examination of the nature of death and its place in culture, which was a welcome addendum to the conversation.

This Weekend

At SPX this weekend, as part of Bob Sikoryak's Carousel, I'll be reading from my new book Rage of Poseidon, which is debuting at the show. The book actually began its life as a slide reading and didn't become a book until later, so I've read some of the pieces here and there in the last few years, but there are two brand new pieces, one of which – a piece about Noah and the flood from the perspective of the angel Gabriel – I'll be presenting for Carousel, along with some stuff about Leda and the Swan, the Goddess of Love and the son of God. All in 8 minutes. It's happening at 5:30 on Saturday.
