When I saw the cover of High & Dry by Stephen M. Park, I had a feeling the book was going to become a body of work of some note (or, rather, legend). When I spoke to Greg Gerding about the new mysterious author on his book label, University of Hell Press, he became very animated and excited. If such an up-and-coming publisher as Gerding gets that excited about a book that he is putting out, then it is definitely something I need to take notice of! So, as the curator of reading series Them’s Fightin’ Words, I asked Gerding if he could hook me up with Mr. Park to be one of my feature readers. The affirmative response was quick. Apparently, this was the first time 65-year-old Park had ever read. So, before the reading, Park and I had an opportunity to discuss our distaste for e-books, cell phones, videos games, and computers.
