Three times a year, Eight-Stone Press publishes the award-winning Smile, Hon, You're in Baltimore!, a submission-based literary zine dedicated to collecting the tales of those on whom Mobtown has left her indelible mark. Polished, professional essays; barroom sermons delivered from the sanctity of a favorite stool; the poet's fleeting sentiment, captured in both word and snapshot. A two-time Utne Independent Press Award Nominee, Smile, Hon has also been dubbed "Best Zine" by Baltimore Magazine (2008) and Baltimore City Paper (2004).
Did you ever wonder what I might sound like if I were Benn Ray, co-owner of Baltimore's own indie all-star, Atomic Books? Neither did I - but now you can hear it for yourself on this week's installment of The Inverse Delirium Podcast, a self-described "spoof of media culture & life in this American Baltimore." This week's guests also include WYPR's Nathan Sterner and Unknown PenguinPatrick Flynn, mostly as themselves!
