Announcing . . .
Guest Contributor Friday!!
(and notice of temporary burnout)

Friends and neighbors:

As a few of you may have noticed, I did not post the latest Seminal Image Friday entry. In all candor, I just didn't have a workable idea for one. I did, however, indirectly receive inspiration for a new feature that, in retrospect, we probably should have introduced long ago.

From time to time we receive unsolicited contributions. They are always welcome, always appreciated; in fact, some of you may recall that, in August of 2007, we mounted our first . . . and, to this hour, only . . . Guest Contributor Week. Well, in that grand tradition, we here at If Charlie Parker Was a Gunslinger... will, one week from this Friday, unveil Guest Contributor Friday: a new, monthly feature wherein all content (all images, all text, all things Gunslinger) will be provided by YOU, our lovely and talented visitors.

For those who wish to participate, all you need do is send your prospective entry to our semi-official email address (, along with whatever text (or not) that you wish to include. Entries are welcome for any existing series, be it over-nourished ('Seminal Images', 'When Legends Gather', etc.) or starved for content (too many to list here). It's all up to you.

Needless to say, if you have any questions, please send them forth and I'll endeavor to get back to you within 48 hours' time.

On a mostly unrelated note, I'll be taking off the next four days of 'Gunslinger' duty (marginal burnout; nothing of any import), but I will return on Friday with the second and last volume of Dimitri Baltermants images ('Life Among the Red Recidivists'). In the meantime, my co-conspirators will step up to the plate and work their wonders in my absence.

Do svidanya fer now!

Excellent! 'Tis a Grand Scheme! :-)

And in The News of What's Cool: Gunslinger followers now number 844.

And that's the way it is, November 15, 2009.
