These are, I don’t know, between fifty and ninety movie-type reviews I wrote back in 1999 or so. Pretty much the exact same few months I was first writing DEMON THEORY, yeah.

Dancing with Myself

My third-ever self-interview, up now at Sea Minor.

First-ever self-interview? Above, under “FAQ.”

Second: in IRON HORSE LITERARY REVIEW a few issues ago.

Next: daily. Every time I find myself in “As seen on TV”-aisle of Walgreens, after which I’ll be asking myself “Did you REALLY think that was going to work like it did on the informercial?”

Answer: Yes, always. Still. Forever.
