    Norman Exposure

    I have been labeled "The Man You Love To Hate" in this month's issue of Las Olas Magazine. And by "you," I think they really mean the core journalistic crew who read the Pulp. Hey it's a fair article, mostly positive, full of nice quotes from friends and colleagues, but I can't post it because it's ... More >>

    Miami Herald: Best Paper In the Country?

    Laid up this morning with a cold from the bowels of mordor (yeah I'm a geek like that sometimes, and I didn't fail to see a little bit of the TNT hobbit-fest last weekend).

It's clearly a slime job -- and what really hurts is that it's obvious they didn't even bother to read the book before the assault. Each ... More >>
