I am grateful for this opportunity to update you on your quite Frankly flagrant attempts to cause insanity. Below, please find some exciting news regarding the achievements made possible by the investment you've made of constantly blathering on and on about weird cocky-doody, especially in my skull, where Voices such as yours are needed most.
Specifically, Michael Bailey has announced the final Table of Contents for the upcoming CHIRAL MAD 3. I have been lucky enough to appear in CHIRAL MAD 1 AND 2, and it is an incredible honor to show up in this here tome, bound to be heavier than the phone book and way more useful (unless prank calling is your thing, which would be very 80's, since nowadays everyone can see who just called them. Prank Calls, like Ancient Greece, had a Golden Age . . . Also, I would recommend not prank calling anybody, it's not cool, and it was done to death in Scream (Wes Craven RIP).
Two of my poems (And I didn't even know I wrote poetry, honest! But now that I do, I might make some more, perhaps a slim volume of curses and prognostications, or a memoir of my life as a sleeping person) will appear alongside a list that makes the cast of members who were in and out of John Mayall's Bluesbreakers pale by comparison.
The following is a direct communication from Michael
on CHIRAL MAD 3:
Jack Ketchum takes the final spot in CHIRAL MAD 3 with a new story called "Seconds." His fiction can be found in all three volumes of CHIRAL MAD! Feel free to share as you wish. The anthology will also contain over 40 illustrations by Glenn Chadbourne, such as the picture at the top of this post.
