NEW Interviews with Margaret

"Chatting with Betsy" has a delightful brand-new interview with me, "Journeying Through Life's Synchronicities," #ChattingwithBetsy.

But it was a tall lift to find a venue still available on that short notice. So we finally settled on New Orleans - Gonzofest 2025. We hav...

AUDIO of The Hell’s Angels Letters on the way – Trailer Link Here

I went down to Louisville, KY, one of my favorite places, for six days to haunt the sound studio of Bill Hardesty, who took the photo of me at the  Brown Hotel above.

Otherwise, I read every word of the book myself, a massive undertaking. A huge thanks to Ron, who set everything up. And to Bill for being fearless and gene...

A Palimpsest of Thanks

—Behind The Hell’s Angels Letters   11, 12, 13 Palimpsest Time with his old face Death with his skull face God with his No Face Under my own face —Milton Klonsky   What did William Blake have to do with The Hell's Angels Letters book?

It was an unlikely event ...
