Robin Slick resides in downtown Philadelphia and just returned from East Germany where her young rock-star kiddies performed with ex-members of Frank Zappa's band at a four-day festival devoted to his music. Her kids caught her smoking black hash backstage with Ike Willis, former bandmate to Frank Zappa, and have still not recovered. Her short fiction appears in NFG, Hackwriters, Small Spiral Notebook, Nagoya Writes, In Posse Review, Insolent Rudder, Fiction Warehouse, and Flashquake. Her new novel, Three Days in New York City, is currently in the hands of a big N.Y.C. agent and one in London. She has read at KGB Bar but was too drunk to remember if she was any good.
