Indeed I have, folks. And now, writing in Sensitive Skin magazine, author bart plantenga tells you how many times and why. Does it in the context of
discoursing about my latest book, Tennessee Williams in Bangkok. And follows
up the telling by interviewing yours truly. It’s a lively read that pulls no
punches. And it’s here
Btw, the moment my Bangkok book is again Amazon available (there wuz this
little blip, eh), I’ll be sending out a brief mailing informing y’all. The
good Lord willing and those damn creeks don’t rise too high, I’m figuring on
no later than the end of November. So stay tuned for that, eh.
While speaking of rising creeks ‘n such, my heart definitely goes out to
those everywhere who occasionally suffer terribly from natural disasters.
And at the moment in particular to the good people of the Philippines. Back
in the 1970s, I went around many a block there and loved it. If there’s any
way you can financially help with the relief efforts, I strongly urge you to
do so. We may each be different individual critters, but in the end we are
all one. Yeah…
Ever onward with love, EDDIE

Ladies and Gentlemen, Mr. Herbert Huncke!
That’s how, nearly 25 years ago, I introduced Herbert for what proved to be
an absolutely riveting storytelling reading at Ins & Outs Press. It went on
nonstop for two solid hours. And when it drew to a close, the packed-house
audience were still asking for more. Now the live recording of that amazing
evening has finally been released as a double-CD album, by Unrequited
Records in San Francisco. It’s called Guilty of Everything, which is also the title of one of Herbert’s books.
Take a look here
Amsterdam residents can score copies of the album from me personally.
Everyone else must order from Unrequited Records. Details for this,
including prices, are on their Order page. Plus you can already hear
selected tracks by going to the Listen page.

A short while ago the Athens-based writer & journalist Michael Limnios wrote and asked if he could interview me. I said yes, and the interview has now been posted on Michael’s magazine, Blues @ Greece. It also has lots of groovy photos of moi, some of which you’ll already know, others not. The interview is here
What’s further interesting is that this interview covers different ground than the one Sacha de Boer conducted with me three years ago (and which was published in her book Retour New York-Amsterdam and can be found on my website). In other words, they perfectly complement one another.
Once you’ve read the interview (and I hope you will, because it’s good!), be sure to check out Michael’s main page. It’s great. You’ll even hear music playing on it.
Ciao for now, EDDIE

I simply cannot resist sending this out. That’s how truly chuffed I am (as the English like to say).
bart plantenga, author of the fantabulously wild-cum-surrealistically inebriated novel Beer Mystic, is progressively penning a profile of each and every one of the 40-odd people/websites/magazines/blogs that are hosting chapters of his book. And now it’s my turn. bart’s piece on me is entitled “Eddie Don’t Do Beer.” And the lad is right. Except for the very occasional witbier or Weißbier (with a slice of lemon added!) on a hot summer’s afternoon, I am nowadays pretty much a gentleman wino.
