It's day three of the Ben Tanzer virtual book tour

Ben Tanzer virtual book tour 2009

All right! It's day three of CCLaP's latest artistic experiment, a two-week "virtual book tour" being conducted by Chicago author Ben Tanzer, in support of the story collection Repetition Patterns that the center put out last fall. You can click here to read more about the tour if you'd like, including the entire schedule and what exactly a "virtual book tour" is anyway.

Today, Ben lands at the blog of a personal favorite of mine, small-press author Jason Jordan, who also doubles as editor-in-chief of literary magazine decomP. Ben ended up writing a guest essay for Jason's site today, specifically on all the various things from his real life that inspired the stories in Repetition Patterns; it's an essay that Ben's existing fans will for sure not want to miss, and includes some new information about these stories that even I didn't know.

Anyway, you can click here for the entire thing over at Jason Jordan's site; and don't forget that tomorrow Ben will pulling into the parking lot of Jason Behrends' pop-culture journal What To Wear During An Orange Alert, where he and guest editor Pete Anderson (yes, that Pete Anderson) will be kicking off a new series of "author interviews author" articles Jason is starting up over there. I hope you'll get a chance to stop by both, as well as all the rest of the stops remaining on this tour.
