That's the Wheatland Press cover, courtesy of Deborah Layne, by the way.

Bob, thanks for providing the original forum for these pieces. Looking forward to owning this counter-cultural comp. Nice to see something from Lucius's darker/funnier side in print.

Thanks for posting this here Bob.

Glad you like it, Ellen. I was afraid it might be too...whimsical for Mr. Shepard's work.

:-)

Mr Shepard's work always contains a soupcon of whimsey.

No offense intended.

I really like the cover as well (though I think there should be Spielberg in a wookie suit). And can't wait to read it, since I've missed way too many of his reviews.
Whimsy? I dunno. I've never thought of a hard shot to the groin delivered with sharp precision and biting wit as whimsy. Entertaining. You bet. Funny as hell. Fuck yeah. But whimsy? Maybe I'm just a little too old school. I need my Borogroves . . .

I think the whimsey issue was raised in jest.

Don't go all mimsey on me, Minz ;)

And, if you want your very own copy (of the book, not the review), I'll begin shipping orders June 1 (or thereabouts). It should be up on Amazon next week or so.

Well as you know, I'm referring to your writing and personality and shit.

I've never heard your music. But I doubt you have a voice like Maynard's, and It'd be tough to top Danny on the kit.

I would like to hear your bands though. Sounds like you were doing some interesting things with African rhythms and metal. Would you ever be able to upload some audio files onto your site? I do remember you saying something about most of your stuff not being properly recorded.

Yeah, I can upload some when I get to my storage facility back east. Probably this fall.

My voice....Beefeart with a tenor rage... :-)

Lucius, on the off-chance you hadn't heard, Nick Gever's posted a brief, way-positive review in October's Locus.
