Tuesday Funk post-mortem

I had the pleasure of reading at the estimable Tuesday Funk this week. I might have overlooked posting advance notice, but you can read the retrospective here. There may be video at some point, too.

I read an excerpt from my strange Wisconsin cycle. This is time it was the first third of “Punch Them Down”, a tale of the last of the north woods tree-punchers.

I have a love/hate relationship with reading. It’s nerve-wracking and exciting in equal measure. I’ve never crashed and burned in accordance with my pre-reading anxiety, instead coming away excited and gratified at the chance to share something new.¬†Tuesday Funk is a great venue for many reasons (outstanding readers, excellent hosts, beer) not least of which is the audience’s willingness to come along for trips through the varied worlds of science fiction and fantasy.
