"You know what? The bastard blows me out of the water. This guy writes Maine like Ardai writes New York. If you're not reading him, you don't know what you're missing." --Chris F. Holm, author of The Big Reap, The Wrong Goodbye and Dead Harvest.

"Bagley's got the poet's eye, but that doesn't mean everything is prettier in his work. It means the ugly stuff is more vivid. More intense. Like a sudden switch from analog to HD. And that's a trait to very much admire in his work." --Anthony Neil Smith, author of Hogdoggin', Yellow Medicine, The Drummer and Psychosomatic.

Update: John Connolly in Waterville

As previously mentioned, the short film John Connolly: Of Blood and Lost Things will be screened next Friday at Waterville's Railroad Square Cinema, at 6:45 pm. Beginning at 8:15 that same evening, John will sign copies of his latest novel, The Lovers, at Children's Book Cellar (52 Main Street in Waterville). I'll be there to help my friend Ellen Richmond with this special event. We're going to have a great time. I hope you can join us.

I'll assume someone is springing for the bugs at The Lobster Trap over in Winslow. Have fun, P.

I'd never attempt lobster with someone on whom I hoped to make a favorable impression. Too messy. Same with spaghetti.

Whenever we finally meet up, I'll have to tell you about the time I broke a pilsner glass in my hand while having dinner with Annie Proulx.

Patrick Shawn Bagley said...

I agree with you on the need to save water, but you're still a jackass for coming here and posting a random, off-topic comment.

So from now on, all comments will be moderated. My apologies to the legitimate commentators.
