I had a gold cap installed on my molar this past weekend. Blinging. Now for some links:

Three Guys One Book: A potent combination and a new literary blog.

“Sartre and the problems with British public transport”: Carrie really liked this article. I liked it, too. And I’ve been to that bookshop! Twice!

The Smoking Poet’s first annual short story contest: Enter!

For those of you struggling to decide what to read next, our friend Will reminds us of two articles that appeared a few months back in the Guardian that each contain more answers than you can probably handle: “How did we miss these?” and “How did we miss these? Part two”

I’ve just exited the sucking mind-warp of the comment thread below Tony O’Neill’s article on Dennis Cooper for The Guardian blog. All thought is pointless.

Thanks-be to music and sexy b/w author photos: A Playlist with Willy Vlautin, author of Northline, on the Paper Cuts blog.

For words, check Poets House upcoming events.

This Friday, May 2nd at 7pm, there will be quite a gang of writers at KGB Bart on 4th Street in NYC. (And at least one editor, incidentally.) For a rundown of the event and the writers, go here. If you’re in the NYC area this weekend and haven’t yet made dinner plans, why not join me for a drink or two as the words rain down upon us?

Oh, you can’t? You have to wash your hair? OK, maybe next time then? What? A kidney transplant? Well, good luck.
