Well, the U.S. leg of the 2009 'Pygmy' tour has ended. Many of you were upset that Chuck was only able to do five cities this time around, not the least of which was Chuck himself. But as you heard him mention in the recent KPBS interview, he lost his mother recently to cancer and spent a large potion of last year caring for her. Also don't forget that he was coming off two tours in 2008.
New Tshirts are available for the upcoming 'Pygmy' tour! You may remember that we did this last year and the year before, for 'Snuff' and 'Rant' (respectively). We initially held off on making these, due to the fact that Chuck is only doing five stops on this tour. But then three more stops got added to Canada and we suddenly had 8 cities that we could list on the back of the shirt.
In a recent audio interview Chuck did with KPBS, while on the road promoting his latest novel "Pygmy", Chuck openly talked about his next novel. In fact, Chuck revealed that, while caring for his mother last year, he actually wrote three novels! The one which is going to drop in 2010 is called "Tell All" and if you thought Chuck couldn't get anymore original and daring... think again.
