The seventh volume of the Sandusky Review is about the one true royal son of Tupelo: how he lived, who he loved, and how he died. (And how he got his teeth fixed).

Five poems and four illustrations featuring the Blue Moon Boys and the Memphis Mafia. Available at Sneaky Beans in Jackson, Miss. & by mail order from yours truly. 130 copies, and when they’re gone, they’re gone.

Here’s the scratchboard cover for my new all-King zine RIP IT UP. A clutch of poems about the Hillbilly Cat & drawings of Scotty, Bill, Sonny & Red.

Working on forthcoming zine RIP IT UP, about Mr. Presley. Currently reviewing the truly impressive list of what was in his belly that night he passed in ‘77. Spoiler alert: a whole lotta codeine & “unidentified barbiturate.”
