Million Year Boom: Best, But Not Required

Eric Reynolds at Fantagraphics mentioned it a while ago, but I didn’t really believe it until I saw the book a few of days ago: Million Year Boom, my story from MOME 11 was selected for the 2009 edition of Best American Nonrequired Reading. I’m REALLY surprised and thrilled to have my work appear in such an amazing collection. Two other MOME contributors, Olivier Schrauwen and √âmile Bravo were also selected. Congratulations to all contributors!
For more about Best American Nonrequired Reading series and it’s selection committee check out their very own blog. A portion of the proceeds from the book go to benefit the 826 National youth literacy project.
The book should be available in bookstores at blog time. Or buy the book online via: Magers & Quinn, Amazon, Powells.
