Can’t get into Prof. Kluge’s Intro Fiction class? Maybe pre-ordering his new book will help…*

Writer-in-Residence P. F. Kluge has written a new novel, The Master Blaster, set to be released on March 29. According to, where the book is available for pre-order, The Master Blaster is “a luminous portrayal of strangers adrift in an intoxicating land,” and is set on Saipan, “America’s least-appreciated tropical island.” If you say so, Amazon, but I think it’s pretty clear (having read the cover of the book and none of the following pages) that the book is actually based on Kenyon, and Saipan is just a thinly-veiled Gambier in disguise. Nice try, Fred.
