Episode 350: The Emperor of Ice-Cream Author Gary Almeter

Today’s guest is one of our very own. Gary Almeter!

We first met Gary when he published a short story with us called “The Love Song of JFK Jr.” His book, The Emperor of Ice-Cream, debuts on March 26 from Unsolicited Press, and it’s really, really, really good. Pre-order it, order it again on Gary’s pub day, and then gift it to all your friends and relatives.

I ran the 2013 Boston Marathon and my wife made me a headband out of my Grandpa’s old bandanas. As I’m running, I can smell his basement. In a weird way, Grandpa was with me. I wanted to remember it.
