Fire the Canon

This week we speak to Michael Kellermeyer, proprietor of Oldstyle Tales Press (www.oldstyletales.com), about what seems to be his favorite thing in the world - the works of Washington Irving. Michael is a former English professor, current independent publisher (and illustrator, bibliographer, literary critic, etc., etc., etc.), and all-around great guy. We had a great time talking to him about ol' Irv, America's original troll and our current best boy. Join us for this most momentous start to spooky season! (And if you haven't yet, consider checking out our previous episodes about Washington Irving, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, and Rip Van Winkle.)
