Vol 1 Brooklyn lists me as MVP of 2013

Alongside friend and all-around awesome bud Beach Sloth, Eric Nelson has made me an MVP of 2013. Talk about holy-shit. Talk about awesome. Couldn’t be more thrilled. Here’s what Eric had to say:

The award for MVP in promoting the work of other writers is a tie between Michael J. Seidlinger and Beach Sloth, who in addition to both being prolific in their own rite, go out of their way on a regular basis to champion work they believe in whether it’s popular or not.

Eric listed a bonafide cornucopia of awesome that you really should check out. This isn’t your typical year-end lists. And yup, I actually used the word “cornucopia.” Something this awesome called for it.
