DeVante’s Children at Bayfront Park

At the festival at Bayfront, Kate and I met SM Johnson, who was sharing a booth with a local alt-weekly. (I asked whether this was a “split” booth and they replied that it was a “shared” booth, which tells you a lot about the awesome community at the festival. Anyway.)

I see that Dr. Bernabo has read one of Johnson’s novels (DeVante’s Children, Torquere Press 2008). She maintains a blog, too. Anybody else read one?

What other neato gems are there out there?
