Smokin' with Singleton

Yesterday George Singleton sent us this photo of himself smoking a couple of pork shoulders outside his writing shack in upstate South Carolina. His dog Dooley serves as co-pitmaster.

If you're not familiar with Singleton's writing, find yourself one of his knockout short fiction collections, which include Drowning in Gruel, The Half-Mammals of Dixie, and These People Are Us. Singleton, who wrote about his high-school barbecue adventures for the last issue of Gravy, will also speak at our barbecue symposium in October. His newest story collection, Stray Decorum (Dzanc Books), hits shelves in September.

Smoke on, George!
