It's no secret that the braintrust behind Makeout Creek lives in Richmond, VA (or, most of it does, anyway) and that we are rather fond of the city's Chop Suey Books. Also: very fond of the fact that Chop Suey Books sells Makeout Creek. Well, it turns out that the good folks at Suey have, in addition to their usual website, finally gotten around to promoting the store and its various activities and outreach programs through one of these blog things. Why don't you check it out? Recent posts involve Nathan the Intern's harrowing account of his visit to Coppola's Deli. (Try the Cheese Columbo!)

New Yorkers! Our good friend R. Nicholas Kuszyk has a show premiering this Saturday, March 7, at McCaig Welles Gallery in Williamsburg!
As you might recall, Nick illustrated the title page of the very first issue of Makeout Creek with one of his signature robots. He is currently at work on Jammer Slammer, an illustrated novel that we'll be premiering in late spring as the FIRST TITLE in Makeout Creek's NEW SEMIANNUAL MONOGRAPH LINE. (No kidding! More news to come!)
Check back here very soon for more about the book; in the meantime, visit Jammer Slammer: The Evalation at McCaig Welles, 129 Roebling Street, Brooklyn, NYC. Again, the opening occurs this Saturday, March 7, from 7pm to late.
Also! August 2009 will see the release of Nick's first kids' book, R Robot Saves Lunch, which is available for pre-order from Amazon!
