I will be unveiling, for the first time, my new chapbook, “The Complete Genealogy of Everyone, Ever.” It turned out really good, in part because Brian Mihok came over and gave me a sewing lesson.

Soon it will be available online for purchase or barter.

What I Picture? Dunking a Steak in Early Gray and Taking a Big Bite

I was in the craft store by Osaka–cool place, they sell lots of crafts by local hobbyists and they sell Jamie Berger’s book–and I picked up a copy of Meat for Tea: The Northampton Review and discovered I was in it. It turns out that when you submit somewhere and then never hear back from the publication, you might have been secretly accepted. Yay! My CV/resume/literary empire grows.


From the people who brought you the Gather Round Children Variety Show, GRC Records, GRC Pictures and, most recently, the GRC Comic Strip comes… Gather Round Children Press.

I am at work on a chapbook of short stories called The Complete Genealogy of Everyone, Ever (Volume One). Thanks to Tom for suggesting the title after I made a joke about a book with the same name. The book will contain six original stories by me–Gabe Durham!–and will go on sale this month (or by July at the latest). It will be available in exchange for money or for barter.

I’m excited about this. I’m ready to have wares to peddle.

The chapbook will also feature art by Rachel B. Glaser:
