Black Scat Books will soon publish my translation of Alphonse Allais’s first book, Double Over: Blackcattish Stories (A se tordre: histoires chatnoiresques), embellished with my introduction, notes, and illustrations, as well as seven extra stories.
I’ve almost finished a translation of The Cocktail Hour, a 1927 guide to cocktails and cocktail etiquette by Marcel Requien and Lucien Farnoux, in collaboration with Gaylor Olivier, of the Corpse Reviver Press in Paris. Watch for it!
Jon B. Cooke is working on a book on R. Crumb’s comic magazine Weirdo; since I contributed a cartoon to it once, I’ll have a few remarks in it.
A new and reportedly large magazine, Dagger, edited by Don Jolly and Matt James, will have a few pages of my comics in it.
Black Scat Books will soon be coming out with a short PDF journal, Le Scat Noir, which will also contain some of my cartoons.
Plans are afoot for me to give my talk on music attributed to fairies, aliens, and other non-humans at Lily Dale next summer.
Black Scat Books is in the middle of a fundraiser. Give them money!
