Boffo performance: It’s great to see author Michael Perry (Mike Perry to those who knew him before the book deal) is getting the recognition his writing deserves. Mike, whose book, Population 485, is climbing the bestseller lists, was a hit on the December 8 episode of public radio’s What Do You Know? If you have Real Audio, you can find it archived here. Or, you can download it directly from this link. If you want to read some of Mike’s earlier work (the stuff he did for Hammock Publishing back when we could afford him) visit this search page and type “Perry” (w/out the quotation marks) in the box. Also, for a great Christmas present for those hard-to-buy-for friends, buy them an iPod, wait, no, I mean buy them a copy of Population 485 from the rexblog Amazon associate store.
