Beer Hosts


The Beer Mystic was once published 1 chapter per site, per place, per URL around the world in e-zines, literary sites, e-pubs, etc. to form a kind of virtual pub crawl.

This, however, did not last long before links started to break off, disappear, die and so mere weeks into this experiment it was already showing signs of failure. Today, probably about half of the links are still active and I’ve rewritten the novel anyway since uploading.

  1. Hi Bart

    My apologies for not getting back earlier. I’ve been a bit out of it recently, and not all that together.

    I’d be happy to publish an excerpt from your novel, however, I’m a bit mystified as to what you want me to do. Can you send me an attachment of the excerpt and then we can see where we go to from there.

    Get back to me soon.

  3. bart,

    i apologize for my tardiness. Urban Graffiti 11 is presently crossing all the “t’s” and dotting all the “i’s” after being proofread. your Beer Mystic excerpt from UGX can still be found at [] however, that site has recently retired, so I have to make alternative arrangements for now and into the future. I have long wanted my litzine to have a blog as well, so this is the avenue I am going to take. Will be in touch ASAP with the link for the UG11 pdf.


  4. bart,

    by the way, you might wish to list Urban Graffiti as located in Edmonton, CANADA as opposed to Edmonton, CA, to distinguish it from the other zines, etc, located in California.
