Time flies, don't it. This Thursday, Feb 21, I'll be reading at Fanshawe College, in good ol' London, Ontario (the real London, har har). It's kind of a weird thing - I'm going to be the only reader, and there's supposed to be a book signing, but since I don't have a book, I'll be hawking the Journey Prize Stories 22. So if you're around, come and throw tomatoes at me. I'll even let you pronounce it 'toe-maw-toe.' Anyway. Details . . .
