Matt Stewart's debut novel, The French Revolution, will be released on Bastille Day 2010. He made headlines worldwide when he posted The French Revolution on Twitter starting on Bastille Day 2009. His short stories have appeared in Instant City, McSweeneys, and Opium Magazine, among other venues, and, when the moonlight strikes just right across the alpine lake in his mind, he's been known to blog for The Huffington Post.

bombay gangsters. I read this 900 page whale because a) I met the auther and b) I was going to Bombay. I got through it, so it wasn't terrible. But the book could have ended at page 250 and I wouldn't have noticed.

Matt Stewart I have a vague idea of a series - the spanish civil war, the warsaw uprising - but have done nothing. I do have another book under development, Duct Tape - a homeless man in search of his imaginary son. Stay tuned!

And thanks very much for the warm words.


zxvasdf Hello, just finished The French Revolution for the second time.

Believe it or not, it was even better than the first go around. The ending... there's so much potential for the Van Twinkle capacity to rise from lowest of the low.

So, pray tell, is there an inkling of a sequel, or, at least, another mad cap tale inside that noggin of yours?
