akashic books is re-relasing my first book, 100 posters / 134 squirrels this fall, as well as a new book by someone named brad klausen. bumbershoot asked both of us to participate in a panel discussion, which unfortunately is happening at about the worst time possible for flatstock vendors, but might work out for flatstock guests: during the last hour before doors close on monday night.
we've each been asked to bring a guest who we've worked with. david yow from the jesus lizard is coming to harass me, and i don't know who brad is bringing yet.
