Because Pinkwater’s interview answers are so terse, I’m going to feature a few questions then allow the Alligatron (the cyber-avocado pictured above) to add it’s input…
You, along with Webmaster Ed, have just uploaded 34 chapters of the incredible audio book “.” This is on top of podcasts, free serialized novels and other audio books including the magnificent Lizard Music. Why are you so nice?
DP: I AM NOT NICE. WEBMASTER ED IS NICE
And… what can we do to say thanks?
DP: BUY A BOOK WRITTEN BY ME? BUY SEVERAL AND GIVE THEM AS GIFTS?
The Alligatron says:
Great idea! May I suggest the incredible collections —
— for adults, young adults, mid-grade readers. That’s nine novels in two books, including Alan Mendelsohn, Last Guru and both Snarkout books!
Also for Mid-grade/YA/ADULTS:
for early Pinkwater, you can’t beat Lizard Music.
for recent work, The Neddiad: How Neddie Took the Train, Went to Hollywood, and Saved Civilization is a masterpiece. But it now and you’ll be ready for the forthcoming sequel, the Yggyssey.
Picture Book: The Big Orange Splot
Early reader: Spaceburger
Chapter book/early mid-grade: The Hoboken Chicken Emergency
Furthermore, Pinkwater-narrated audio books can’t be beat. In addition to the free ones at pinkwater.com, I can also recommend The Hoboken Chicken Emergency and the Neddiad on CD.
