If you’d like a way to ease yourself into the Halloween spirit there’s a free reading tonight that might be right up your alley. Petworth’s own Eric Nuzum, author of The Dead Travel Fast, has another book in the works. Dead was about vampires and our obsession with them. Nuzum describes Bring Me to Heaven as a “ghost-themed memoir.”

No, I don’t know what that means.

What I do know is that he’ll be doing a reading, including material from the upcoming book, tonight at Past Tense in Mount Pleasant. The press release says some of the amusing stories he’ll relate will include:

• A night spent locked in an abandoned prison facility with a reputation for violent paranormal interactions
• An evening spent traipsing through the Gettysburg Battlefield in search of ghosts

And more. The reading is at 7:45 but you’re encouraged to come at 6:30 and join the happy hour yoga class.

Yes, Happy Hour Yoga. Look, I just report on this stuff, okay?

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.
