Warning: This is a completely self-serving, self-promoting post. Thanks to the lovely Ms. Simone, however, your friendly forum moderator, I got permission to post- respectfully- this info on the forum, as I am a hard-working, dues paying, sweat wringing slammaster. That being said...:
If there are any Kindle owners/fiction lovers out there, I recently published a novel, "The Hallucinogenic Bible", on Amazon.com. It is a fictionalized narrative based on 10+ years of following the Grateful Dead around the country, living out of my car, selling food and drink and stuff to make a living, avoiding cops, taking too many drugs. It's a road trip novel, dealing with spirituality, music, ritual, religion, and lots of other heady stuff with which I try to validate a life of following a band around the country. Plus, for you people who have ever seen me slam, this 350 page book is actually based- loosely inspired- by a 3 minute poem called "Yet Another Hippie Poem". So there IS a slam connection! Plus, local SA poet Joshua "Lakey" Hinson designed the cover...so that's 2 connections! Yeah!
Anyway, that's it. Thanks for your time and see you at slam!
