As the summer was winding down, I announced the launch of a Beaver Street
Autumn Offensive—a rebooting of my publicity campaign following an absurd and exhausting (though ultimately successful) struggle with a certain mega-corporation that had refused to make available to the reading public the print edition of Beaver Street
. With mid-October upon us, and the Autumn Offensive in full swing, I’m going to take a moment to recap the blizzard of rave reviews, interviews, blog postings, and assorted articles, that have recently sprung up on the Internet, not only about Beaver Street
, but also my John Lennon biography Nowhere Man
, which has been reaping the whirlwind of the Autumn Offensive, as well.
This webmag, which covers horror films and all kinds of pulp media, took a liking to Beaver Street
and posted a review
and a two-part interview. Here’s Part 1
and here’s Part 2
Like The Bloodsprayer, this webmag also revels in gore and pulp and they loved Beaver Street
. Here’s Bryan “Shu” Schuessler’s rave review
, and here’s his interview
with me on Core of Destruction Radio.
ReW & WhO?:
My return appearance to this TV show, broadcast live on the Internet, was a blast. I talked about Beaver Street
as much as I talked about Nowhere Man
. You can watch the “15 minutes of fame” interview here
Banned Books Week:
I was delighted to participate in this event and read from one of my favorite banned books, The Catcher in the Rye
, by J. D. Salinger. You can read all about it here
This Oklahoma City-based website, dedicated to “reading material to get excited about,” shows that Middle America has a passion for Beaver
second to none.
Marv Montag’s Magnificent Echo Chamber:
A review site dedicated to the adult industry discovers Beaver Street
and pronounces it “excellent.”
Louie b. Free Radio Show:
Louie Free has not yet archived my October 9 appearance on his show, celebrating the life of John Lennon, but you can listen to Louie live here
The local alt-weekly in the Albany, NY, area provided some nice coverage
of my appearance at the Book House.
They’ve posted an essay
I wrote titled “How Nowhere Man
Became a Bestseller,” and a Book Brief
about the book.
Finally, here are five more assorted links from a variety of book-oriented sites: Pulp Informer
