End of the week round-up, Tim Hall, Pete Anderson, Jason Fisk, and more. Much, much, more.

Friday is upon us, nice, and in a wonderful end of the week sort of way, we have stumbled into a random confluence of friends and stuff we wanted to share with you.

First, the wonderful poet, and one of our many current best friends ever, Jason Fisk who we just happened to have published in This Zine Will Change Your Life earlier this month, has a new chapbook out from Brown Bottle Press with the musician Jeremy Michael Cashman titled Trapped Within Myself.../The Village Library Interviews/, that is filled with poetry, fiction and lyrics/words by Jason that Jeremy has set to music on the accompanying disc. It's really good stuff, so please go find a copy for yourself now.

Second, This Zine Will Change Your Life assistant flunky Pete Anderson has a new piece titled Clean and Bright up at Joyland. The piece is a response to Hemingway's, Ernest not Mariel, "A Clean, Well-Lighted Place," and we think you may want to consider reading it right this very second. Thanks.

And finally, in the most random of occurrences this week, long-time TBWCYL, Inc. favorite Tim Hall, who's novel Full of It we just reviewed earlier this week, has an excellent new interview up at Orange Alert with Scott McClanahan, author of the short story collection Stories, which Barry Graham, another favorite here at headquarters, was just raving about on the newest episode of This Podcast Will Change Your Life, recorded earlier this week as well. It's craziness, right? Way.

Thanks for stopping by at Green Lantern. Much unexpected and much appreciated. My delivery still needs a lot of work, but at least I didn't faint or anything.

And much fun for us, not that watching you faint wouldn't be fun as well.
