For the past 10 or so years, when not writing haikus, I have labored on and off (ok…mostly off) on an as-yet-unpublished novel called Earth City. The novel follows a year in the life of heroine Astrid Lutz, who graduates from college, moves back in with her parents in St. Louis,does temp work, sings karaoke, and dates the lead singer of a Journey
cover band. You can now read two chapters from this opus in print in
the new issue of the Air in the Paragraph Line zine. Jon Konrath, the editor, describes the zine thusly:
Air in the Paragraph Line
is an anthology of fiction, stories, rants, and tales by up-and-coming
writers who are entertaining, obscure, and cutting-edge. It’s designed
to be readable, enjoyable, and cheap.

thereof) by Tony Byrer, Joshua Citrak, Mike Daily, Kurt Eisenlohr,
