Housefire! Tomorrow night!

June 22, 2011

in General Knowledge @ 5:28 pm

Famous Author Mykle Hansen says:

Not only will FAMH set your actual house on actual fire, but also he will read you a story about it tomorrow evening (Thursday, June 23, 2011) at the latest Stephen-King-themed installment of the excellent reading series HOUSEFIRE, adjunctive to Riley Michael Parker’s equally assbad webmag by the same name (HOUSEFIRE) which is here.

Robyn Bateman, Lindsay Allison Ruoff, Kira Clark, Willie Fitzgerald, Cameron Pierce and others will also appear, read, then disappear while the rest of us clap and point. And there will be art, and there will be booze, and there will be the grand release of HOUSEFIRE’s fresh new stapling of Stephen King stories, entitled DANCE MACABRE. It’s a King thing, you’d totally understand.

All this happens at SISTER COUSINS, which is at 2917 SE Hawthorne in Portland, between seven and ten PM. The HOUSEFIRE series has been rad as hell. FAMH would go even if he wasn’t going. So should you.

But it’s a party, okay? Wear the happy pants, not the grumpy pants.

Smallpressapalooza!

March 27, 2011

in General Knowledge @ 7:24 pm

Famous Author Mykle Hansen says:

Back in Portland just in time for more rain, FAMH will read from The Cannibal’s Guide To Ethical Living this Monday Night (tomorrow, that is) as part of Smallpressapalooza, Powell’s Books’ festival of the micro, indie and willfully obscure in today’s literature. And not alone: see also Eraserhead Press label-mate David Agranof (presenting parts of The Vegan Revolution … With Zombies!), Microcosmonaut Joe Biel (reading from Bipedal By Pedal) and a host of other talented talents. (Check the complete schedule here.) It’s a four hour rock-block of raw underground voices and occasional snack breaks that starts at 6pm, with Mr. Hansen “headlining”* at 9:30. On a Monday night, one could do worse.

* The presence of actual lines on Mr. Hansen’s head at this event cannot be confirmed at this time. However, his newly aquired Arizona tan will be available for public basking-in.

Reading! Tuscon! Arizona! March 23rd!

Famous Author Mykle Hansen says:

Rejoyce generally! Soon, Mr. Hansen will escape the eternal dreariness of Portland winter to read at REVOLUTIONARY GROUNDS BOOKS & COFFEE in sunny Tuscon, AZ!

Mykle Hansen, author of the comic novel HELP! A BEAR IS EATING ME!, returns with
THE CANNIBAL’S GUIDE TO ETHICAL LIVING, a bizarro tale of fine dining, bad behavior, manners, money and meat, now available from Eraserhead Press.

In a remote and dangerous corner of the ocean, the renowned gourmet and food journalist Louis De Gustibus is held captive by an elite chef — and vegan cannibal — named André. But André would never eat his dear friend Louis. Andre only eats millionaires! Over a five star French meal of fine wine, organic produce and human flesh, a lunatic delivers a witty, chilling, disturbingly sane argument in favor of eating the rich.

For this event, Mr. Hansen will read from his new novel and from works in progress, answer all questions, autograph things, and draw funny animal pictures. He invites all of Tuscon to come have a beer with him afterwards. It all happens on the evening of Wednesday, March 23rd, at seven in the evening. Do come!


March 23rd, 7:00pm, at REVOLUTIONARY GROUNDS BOOKS & COFFEE
606 N 4th Avenue, Tucson, AZ, 85705

Take To The Ship!

February 9, 2011

in General Knowledge @ 10:54 am

Famous Author Mykle Hansen says:

This Friday February 11 at Powell’s City Of Books, FAMH will read out loud from Herman Melville’s homoerotic classic, MOBY DICK, as part of TAKE TO THE SHIP, an epic 24-hour marathon reading of the entire novel!

Mr. Hansen will read Chapter Three, “The Spouter Inn,” thereby setting up Powell’s own Kevin Sampsell for all the funny parts in Chapter Four. And one hundred thirty three other readers will read the other one hundred thirty three chapters — that’s twenty-four hours of Dick! It’ll be a festive who’s-who of Portland literary and artistic talent, and the entire reading will be recorded for posterity.

For both fans of the Melville masterpiece, and those who have never cracked its pages, the reading will celebrate the epic sweep of one of the greatest reads in history, as well support the IPRC. When first published, Moby Dick was a near flop. It remains a totem to the importance of small, independent publishing for keeping alive great works ahead of their time.

Escape From Thanksgiving starts early at The Authors Speak!

November 26, 2010

Famous Author Mykle Hansen says:

We warned you … and now it’s here!  Happy Escape From Thanksgiving, everyone!  For the next 24 hours, we’ll be sashaying up and down the Internet like a tramp on meth, in a degrading but hopefully eye-catching effort to bring attention to Mr. Hansen’s new book, and the new books of his associates David Agranoff and Chris Genoa.  They are good books, we want you to buy them, we want your friends to buy them.  But more than anything, we want to keep you interested.

And we’ve just fired the first salvo from our formidable cannons of interesting!  THE AUTHORS SPEAK — Eric Mays’ online journal for avid readers, writers, and fans of the written word — has just published a seasonally-themed bidirectional interview between Misters Hansen and Agranoff — a polite but impassioned chat about ethics, zombies, cannibals, veganism, French cooking and Thanksgiving.  Check it out!

(We bet you didn’t even know they were bidirectional.)
