About meI make collages out of old books. Hide your encyclopedias and children's storybooks. They are all fuel for my madness.
If anything I've entered messes with combining or separating books, feel free to contact me.

I now work at Comix Revolution in Evanston, Illinois; come by and say hello.

About my libraryThings marked as "cut up" are books purchased to make collages.

Saw you liked Trainspotting, and I was wondering if you'd be interested in reading my new novel and posting your comments here (as well as on a few other book-related sites). Thought you might like my novel since it's also about a group of disturbed kids and a bit dark. I could e-mail you the novel in an e-book format if you'd like. Let me know if you're interested. Here's a link to a summary in case you're interested:


I've never sucked out a crawfish head, either, but I have been to New Orleans several times. The first two times were for work conferences. Quite a difference! One was in mid-June, hot and sticky. The second was in March - and it snowed (just a bit, but there were definitely snowflakes, and Atlanta was shut down, so I nearly had an extra night or two there). I've been back several times for the Jazz and Heritage Festival, most recently in 2006, when my sisters and I decided "damn the cost"; New Orleans needed our tourist dollars. NOLA is probably my second favorite city in the country (the first being my own, Chicago).
Just a bit of a follow-up - I did read Gumbo Tales, and thought it was great. Thanks so much for the recommendation.
Thanks for the kind words about my review of A House on First Street. I sometimes think that on occasion people let their emotions about the subject matter of a book get in the way of a dispassionate critique. However, I have taken your suggestion of Gumbo Tales as an alternative, and have put a hold on it at the library. (I swear, since the CPL made it possible to reserve books from one's home computer, I've been taking mad advantage!)
The copy of Far East Suite that I own has four alternate takes in addition to the nine tracks originally released. You can see the listing for yourself in the entry for the disc on Amazon. The ASIN is B000002WSK.
So sorry! ;-))

I've actually not spent as much time on RYM as I thought, as I'm a bit obsessive about adding track listings, and it's not easy to do. But I persevere, whenever I'm in the mood.
Hello! I shall refrain from any more messing about with Gaiman et al. until you are done! I'm afraid that people sometimes do go crashing into each other here occasionally, one trying to fix what appears to be an error but is really someone else fixing things. Sorry about that!

I see we are sort of neighbors (I'm a south sider, though). I assume you've marked your calendar for the Newberry Library book sale? ;-))
