a theory of darkness

Just finished a long day of cutting and folding, and the new book, A Theory of Darkness, is ready for the small press fair tomorrow. These poems are a part of a larger cross-genre mystery novel, also called A Theory of Darkness, by Catherine Paquette. It's also really really good. You can read poems Midnight and A Theory in Pieces on Catherine's website.

don't let the lights go out

The newest project from the unkindness is a go!

don't let the lights go out is a library of art projects that have never existed. A collection of the unlimited number of ideas for novels, comics, performances, installations, and whatever else that has never had the chance to be realized.

Every artist has thousands more ideas than they can make in one lifetime, and don't let the lights go out is a place to put those ideas so that they can still reach an audience.

Please take a look at the site, and feel welcome to make any contributions of your own unused ideas. Just write them up or sketch them up and email Please include a short bio and any information or links to other projects you might actually be working on so that I can promote them on the site.
