The Poem Emporium gave A Time Before Slaughter a gracious write-up here: The reading will be Sunday, January 24 at 3P.

Open Books is one of two all poetry bookstores in the Unites States. A nexus for Seattle poetry, it is an honor for your wily Splabman to be reading for the first time in that venue. We hope to see you there to support the store, buy a copy of the book, or come to hear the product of a 12+ year process and an inspired reading. Open Books, in Wallingford, at 2414 N. 45th St. Seattle, WA 98103.
