The next Ullage Group event is in the works.  We’re planning something tasty, and will meet again when Anthony gets back to town.

I direct your attention to an interview with Norman Conquest, the distinguished Président-Fondateur of Black Scat Books, which has published several of my translations, some with my illustrations.

And, speaking of Black Scat Books, my Alphonse Allais campaign continues.  Captain Cap Volumes 3 and 4 are due in July and August, respectively; and the next issue of the Black Scat Review will include my translation of Allais’s story “Absinthes” (one of my favorites, parenthetically), and of short texts about Allais by Jules Renard and François Caradec.

There’s more good news in the publishing world: Anomalist Books has republished John Keel’s game-changing study of UFOs, Operation Trojan Horse.  And you are, of course, invited to visit the site I maintain in John’s memory.  The last series of posts documented the book that he almost wrote with the equally colorful Ivan T. Sanderson.

I’m currently recording my next album, Maybe Those Hornets Would Like These Posies,  with David Gold on viola and Doug Roesch on guitar and bass.  Several songs are done already, and this week I added keyboard and interesting noises to several of them.

Meanwhile, I’ve learned that one of my students, Tom Huang, has posted part of my birthday show from this year, with some visuals of his own devising.

And my next show, by the way, will be at the Jalopy Theatre on July 13, where I will be joined by Doug Roesch on guitar and Ralph Hamperian on tuba.

Lastly, there is apparently a book of Wikipedia articles about me, offered by some enterprising character.  I don’t suggest that you buy the thing, but I do encourage you to review it.
