My new “gentri-fi” novel Byebye and Shlort is here! It’s got what you need: comedy, tragedy, language traps, language weapons, mayhem, friendship, frenemies, migration, deportation, drugs, yuppies, nonprofits, landlords, gentrification, displacement, homelessness, death from exposure, everyone’s excuse for how we can’t live any other way, and of course beer and weed!
It’s my love letter to San José, in hope that the people through education and cooperation can get the city we deserve, as the guy says. Hope I can go on living in San José for a few more years! Of course you can all make me rich by purchasing the book and send me off to Aptos…
I’m especially excited that the book will be at Bluestockings in Manhattan! You can call Hennepin County and Denver libraries and tell them to take that offer that they got this past week!
Anyone who reads the book can keep the world turning by rating it on Goodreads as well. ¡Viva la anarquía!
Time to visit www.exitosngnosis.com and pre-order your Byebye and Shlort, recipient of a 4.5/5 score from IndieReader! It’s much cheaper before May! Or be smart and tell your library to get it for you!

So here’s some comics that oughta become a zine in like 2014 but I couldn’t get my shit together for whatever stupid reason. In the zine I was going to talk about why grocery stores freak me out, and they still do. I think the only one that went up on the internet at the time was the one about Target. Here’s the drugs one.
Dear pediatricians in San José: don’t be pissed if your name shows up in my next book. For now I can see you!!!
Everyone else, use this link, which was evidently started as part of Obamacare to see how much money your local pediatrician has received from drug companies to give foster youth psychotropic drugs!
As you’d know if you’d get off the Netflix and read Karen de Sa’s reporting, foster youth are drugged to the neck by pediatric physicians and psychiatrists. The doctors get a reward of cash or goods from the drug companies, Medicare pays the companies for the drugs (because the patients are foster youth) and everyone goes home fat and happy. It’s a great way to screw young people and waste public money! And you think it’s fine!
