Bourbon Cowboy

The adventures of an urbane bar-hopping transplant to New York.

Location: New York, New York, United States

I'm a storyteller in the New York area who is a regular on NPR's "This American Life" and at shows around the city. Moved to New York in 2006 and am working on selling a memoir of my years as a greeting card writer, and (as a personal, noncommercial obsession) a nonfiction book called "How to Love God Without Being a Jerk." My agent is Adam Chromy at Artists and Artisans. If you came here after hearing about my book on "This American Life" and Googling my name, the "How to Love God" book itself isn't in print yet, and may not even see print in its current form (I'm focusing on humorous memoir), but here's a sample I've posted in case you're curious anyway: Sample How To Love God Introduction, Pt. 1 of 3. Or just look through the archives for September 18, 2007.) The book you should be expecting is the greeting card book, about which more information is pending. Keep checking back!

A Million Random Digits

I'm sort of late to the party on this one, but for those of you who aren't National Puzzlers League members or who don't follow the posts of Eric Albert, they've just republished a book called A Million Random Digits. It is (as I understand it) the result of the Rand Corporation's early attempt to write a randomizing program, and the book contains...a million random digits. But because this is Amazon, people are allowed to write customer reviews of the book. You have to check it out.

This story clearly should be serialized. The sequel could answer all the questions raised in this first book. Then the "Random Universe" could be fleshed out to provide a fantastic escape from our mundane un-random world...
