Quickies Chicago - October 13 Reading

After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

See the right side of the page? Well, looks like I'm reading with Aaron Burch (editor of Hobart) and Blake Butler, author of SCORCH ATLAS, who just landed a two book deal.


So I have to read the elephant penis story, right? My Opium short entitled "Animal Magnetism" seems like the right thing for a 4 minute read.

If you're in Chicago, come on out and watch me make an ass of myself.
