McSweeney’s little and big

Regular readers will know I’m a big fan of and sometime contributor to McSweeney’s Internet Tendency. This week, I have a piece running to mark Kurt Vonnegut’s birthday, entitled “Your Services As Guidance Counselor Are No Longer Required, Mr. Vonnegut.

But the bigger news — like 680 gilt-edged pages big — is that I have a piece in the 21st-anniversary McSweeney megabook, Keep Scrolling Until You Feel Something. It’s a collection of the best of the site and includes the very first piece of mine they ran back in 2005. So, yeah, you can read all the pieces for free, but look at this beautiful book!

That’s it. Don’t forget to support good humour writing and writers by becoming a McSweeney’s patron.

I'm Canadian so I pronounce it "Aboot." No, I don't! I don't know any Canadian who says "aboot." Damnable lies! But I do know this Canadian is all about humour (with a U) and satire. Come by. I don't bite, or as we Canadians say, "beet."

    Oh happy day! I loved the Vonnegut piece yesterday and so nice, to hear your voice so “you,” there…congrats, and just in time for your birthday! What could be better?

    Both these pieces are great, and I believe Vonnegut may have been my counselor before he got the ax at this school. Well done!

  3. I enjoyed your pieces, old and new!
