Peaveman’s Lament Interview

Even though Eric Raglin of CURSED MORSELS is a complete monster for tricking me into appearing on my first podcast, all is forgiven. He’s one of the masterminds behind the upcoming anti-capitalist anthology ProleSCARYat. The book features my story “Peaveman’s Lament,” a tale about a hard working man’s complicated relationship with the snack machine. Among other things. Call it a study in sublimation.

I had the pleasure of chatting with Eric on the ProleSCARYat website, and in the spirit of anti-capitalism, we shared my most ridiculous selfie instead of a “good” author photo. (Admittedly, with Covid restrictions, my “good” author photo is questionable. If you know a good photographer…)

The background of the picture includes one of my old weird drawings from a previous life as a visual artist. Are you intrigued? Go ahead and click to see and learn about this cool anthology:
