The Awful Possibilities Spins Strange Tales

Next Monday author Christian TeBordo reads from his new short story collection, The Awful Possibilities, which Jeff Parker, author of Ovenman, calls "Quentin Tarantino on short story juice. The violence and depravity ride the surface, where I like them, and the heart is a lyrical heart. Add to that creepy postcards with cryptic messages and this collection attacks from all sides." Published by local Featherproof Books, this is a book release party including special guests Jeff Parker, Lindsay Hunter, Adam Levin, and Tim Kinsella, with music by DJ Baby Sloth. Free, 21+. At The Whistler, 2421 N. Milwaukee Ave., (773) 227-3530, Monday, April 26 at 8 p.m.
