JEFF TAYLOR lives in a haunted valley somewhere in the Coast Range and writes columns for This Old House magazine, Harrowsmith Country Life, and other journals. He has been a contributing editor of New Age Journal and Mother Earth News. His first book, Tools of the Trade, was published in 1996. He often speaks on his favorite subject: the need for more humor in a pernicious, unfriendly, perilous, and ugly time in human history, called NOW.
Jeff will read from the title story of his forthcoming book, The Flight of the Vampire Quade, which is based on his experience as a hospice volunteer.
