From the same metafictional universe as films like Best in Show and This is Spinal Tap, Walking Man documents the life and times of Brian Walker, publisher of the zine Walking Man. The book satirizes so-called "alternative" culture while it fondly recollects the 80s and 90s zine scene.
Words and art from current exhibitions at the Green Lantern Gallery, artist and curatorial statements, upcoming events, excerpts from upcoming works from the Green Lantern Press, guest pieces from other "culture workers" as well as text pieces based loosely around the theme of the current exhibition in collaboration with the artist.

If they respond, '...not out of the woods yet,' it is a phrase that is often used as a nice way of saying 'not in the clear, but keep on hoping for the best.' This work is an attempt to explore 'the woods' as this state of danger, of nearness to death."
A collection of short stories and itineraries on South-meets-Midwest cultural differences, strained familial and romantic relationships, catching up with old friends, dead rats tied together at the tail, and various things to do with vegetables, including shooting string beans at strangers through a straw, and searching for things like sunglasses, grits, and skunk-apes.
