Fight Global Prohibition
In this Global War On Terror against Islamofacism, do your bit and fight back...with a good cocktail. Check out this testament to Western civilization, Modern Drunkard Magazine
I've put on my combat boots, hoisted a martini, and contributed to the fight by penning an article of own, Boozing in the Barrio
. The article just came out in the 2006 December issue (don't let a deadline interfere with Happy Hour) and hasn't been posted on line yet. But you can get a good idea of the magazine by checking out this article about drinking on Star Trek: Space, The Wino Frontier.
I'm "researching" an article about the drinking culture of the undead. Any of you with firsthand knowledge, please share.
One of my favorite authors, Carl Hiaasen
, has a new book out.
There's a wonderful review with Hiaasen in this month's Mystery Scene
magazine. In it, Hiaasen reveals the big secret of us novelists. Despite any measure of success, dumptrucks of money for example (or in my case, a matchbox full of change), he says "The worst writers are the lazy ones, the self-congratulatory one. All the good writers I know are nervous wrecks."
I'll drink to that.
