“In a city ridden with prostitute furries, cannibal cops and warehouse-sized mob bosses, I’ve got my work cut out for me. My name is Jimmy Plush. I’m a private detective. I’m also a teddy bear. (more…)

Famous Author Mykle Hansen

… hey, that’s me!  Yes, it’s true, my fame is now almost as large as my head.  Which, as this photo reveals, is almost as big as my ass.

What’s my secret?  The Famous Author Mykle Hansen website!

Bear, Eating Man

“I am a bear. Life is boring. Let me go eat some men …”

If you are the sort of person who likes websites full of funny, sad, adorable stories about bears and people — and we both know you are — then you ought to take a browse around Bear Parade, a lovely site dreamed up by Gene Morgan, Tao Lin and I think maybe some other people — it’s hard to be sure — hosting a large set of nicely-designed online chapbooks known as “the Bear Parade series.”  Are they books?  Are they e-books?  I-books?  Interbooks?  I’m just not sure, but I like them anyway.

The link above will take you to a small fragment of  Mazie Lousie Montgomery’s Compassionate Moose, the tenth book in the series and my personal favorite, largely due to its high bear content.

Bear-Proof Can Is Pop-Top Picnic for a Crafty Thief

A smart bear regularly defeats a complex device, meant to protect campers’ food, that even some people can’t open.  Surprised?  Hardly.  Every night bears creep into my house and use my laptop to purchase canned salmon online, and I still can’t even catch them in the act.  They are clever and sneaky.

Even in urban areas, it’s always a good idea to suspend your food from a rope in a tall tree at night.  This won’t actually thwart bears, but it will keep them occupied and off the streets.
