The Sad Museum

The Sad Museum The Sad Museum is a virtual bazaar. Or maybe it's an online flea market. There will perhaps be some interesting things for sale.


I'm trying to finish a novel that I feel pretty confident might one day find a conventional [sic] publisher, and I'm slowly wading through the boxes of hundreds of notebooks and photographs from the LBM Dispatch trips in an attempt at writing a book about that amazing experience; more pressing for me personally, though, is that I also have a dream book I'm dying to make, and I want to make it with a collection of my favorite artists and friends. Rather than attempt to raise funds through Kickstarter or one of those other sites, I've decided to have a virtual flea market so folks can get an immediate reward and help me dig myself out from under a lifetime of collecting stuff.


Lots of new arrivals at The Sad Museum, which has been very sad indeed. Coming soon: a huge collection of books on Polar Exploration, hundreds of music bios and histories, choice batches of poetry, and a bunch of baseball mitts, including three different Harmon Killebrew store models. Come on folks! Help a guy clean out his garage in time for winter.
