Sometimes, I write something with a whole lotta words. Not often, just sometimes.
Gaslight Square: An Oral History (The William and Joseph Press)
This book was the first, full-on title dedicated to the glory that was Gaslight Square, St. Louis’ famed nightlife district of 1959-’72. To this day, a copy, or two, is sometimes requested of me. If you’ve somehow come across this note, I’m inviting you to make that request, too.
Portraits Along the River: Working in the City of St. Louis, with photographer Bob Reuter (The William and Joseph Press)
A photo-and-word pairing on life in the City, a collaboration with the late Bob Reuter. Out-of-print; ask for a copy.
Second Set: Encore (St. Louis Beacon)
For two years, I wrote about the local rock of the ’80s and ’90s and it adapted those writings into a short e-book, published under the auspices of the late stlbeacon.org. This one’s not exactly easy to track down, despite the ubiquity of the web.
