Welcome TO MR. DEATH'S EPHEMERAL PAGEANT!
This is my official website. It is an art retrospective, a blog, a repository of news, interviews and musings about my writing and art, a tiny cache of teaching materials, and a shop. This site is designed and managed by Ken Gerleve. We will add material as the urge strikes us; future plans include an expanded shop with limited edition prints and oddities. Also, for the first time, we are offering many of my published books for sale directly from our site with Zola Books' new bookstore widget.
