FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE MAY 23
June 1 Press Release - "Giant Slugs invade!"
On June 2 instead of the usual book launch wine and cheese event, Lawrence & Gibson and Richard Meros will release a deluge of material on www.lawrenceandgibson.org. The collective will cram YouTube book readings, interviews with authors present and past, an essay on artist-oriented collectives and the launch of an online store into a one hour period.
The two books share a bildungsroman plot, but are set in radically different locations. In Giant Slugs, the narrator is ousted from his home Uruk, a somewhat Sumerian stage; in Zebulon the Nootropic isles, a near-future New Zealand, are the home to gadfly Meros and his bawdy, tawdry cast.
Zebulon is Meros second release of 2011. Asked as to how many more releases eager-beaver readers might be able to gnaw into before the year is out, he replied: “One more. Or two. Or three. I’m just taking every day as it comes, and if I happen to write a book, well... damned good luck!”
Surf over to www.lawrenceandgibson.org on Thursday, 2 June for the eLaunch. BYO.
