An Interview with Dolan Morgan

Where did Dolan Morgan come from? The stories in his first collection—just published by Aforementioned Productions—make you wonder. Here, psyches stretch the dimensions of physical space, and the most intense aspects of relationships…

Nelly Reifler asked me a few questions for The Believer. Yay!

“I am a sceptic and I don’t believe anything any person, elected or employed, in government has to say. However, I trust the honour of the Canadian Military. If the Commander of HMCS Toronto says that it happened then, IT HAPPENED!”
— Saw this gem in a comment section recently.

Compelling development on my Facebook design.

| Editor’s Note: On July 31st we invited all of our twitter, Facebook, and tumblr followers to partake in a writing experiment on a public Google Doc. Over 180 people took part and at times there were 75 people in the document at the same time. What came together is something bizarre, but…

I giddily wrote the fictional instructions and FAQ section for this experiment. Many others contributed to the actual story. I did not. Fun times, all around.

Tonight in BK, Greenpoint’s own Dolan Morgan launched his new book, That’s When the Knives Come Down, in the excellent company of B.C. Edwards and Chelsea Hodson.

This fabulous lineup made for a very fun and entertaining evening. There were stories about God in a soybean field, spammers with tears in their eyes, and car explosions and curses. Congrats again to Dolan Morgan on his brilliant debut!  hiplit:

Yes, that is a bottle of literature-infused vodka (specifically That’s When the Knives Come Down by Dolan Morgan).

No, we will not be held responsible for what happens if you actually drink any of it.

The drinkable version of That’s When the Knives Come Down. Fuck reading, get drunk.
