  • Chris DeWan and friends

    Hoopty Time Machines (and other time machines!)
    Christopher DeWan reads from his new short story collection HOOPTY TIME MACHINES. The stories include fairy tale heroines, introspective superheroes, and a whole menagerie of myths and monsters, but at their heart, each one is deeply human, and at least a little bit heartbreaking. One of the "most anticipated small press books of 2016."
    With special, surprise guests!
    "Like Barry Yourgrau went on tour with sad, lyrical stand-up routines—funny, sharp, playful zingers of stories that reach right out to grab a reader." - Aimee Bender, author of The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake
    "Hoopty Time Machines is much like a bag of M&M's, in that it's nearly impossible, once you've opened it, not to consume it down to the last morsel, and fast. It is less like a bag of M&M's in that you never know what you'll find beneath the candy coating: a peanut or an amphetamine, a rosary bead or a thumbtack." - Kevin Brockmeier, author of The Illumination
    "An absolute delight from the first page to the last: it's like that scene in Singin' in the Rain, only with ideas instead of puddles." - Ben Loory, author of Stories for Nighttime and Some for the Day
