I'll be judging LitQuake's Literary Death Match on October 7th at the Make Out Room with a talented panel of super serious writers.
And I've been having fun with San Francisco Chronicle writer Peter Hartlaub on his Big Event podcast, recorded from the Chronicle basement. HERE we discuss the greatest movies made from Stephen King novels.
I'm really happy to have joined the small team at Journal of Alta California, a new magazine from William Randolph Hearst III inspired by the New Yorker, Vanity Fair and other greats - but with a firm focus on California. Available in print and online, Alta will eventually host public events as well. Subscribe here! It's an honor and a thrill (not to mention a challenge) to work with such an accomplished crew.
