Help! A Bear Is Eating Me!

Mykle is currently on a worldly tour, especially if you think of California as worldly. continues to track his movements, including tonight’s stop in San Francisco. His previous book EyeHeart Everything is a fantastic collection of micro-amusement–short very well-written oddities that amuse and delight.

When not writing stories about men who are in the process of being eaten by bears, Mykle is also a musician with the band The Golden Greats (amongst others). Of course, I am personally thrilled that another alternatively spelled Michael is embracing his outer renaissance man (or renaissancement, as I like to say).


Actor, nerd, poet, producer, writer mikl-em made his name short so you wouldn't have to. In addition to his blog you can find his writing in "Hi Fructose" magazine and witness him almost life-sized in various plays at The Dark Room Theater in SF's Mission district.

He tends to write about theater, humor, San Francisco culture and history, and stuff that's just plain weird. He thanks Scott for sharing the keys to the Laughing Squid virtual HQ and promises to uphold whatever it is that the mirthful cephalopod would prefer to be uplifted.
