Do you know Joseph Michael Owens?

Do you guys know Joseph Michael Owens? You should. I loved his debut collection, Shenanigans and have interacted with him online countless times as we have talked literary theory, Final Fantasy, unicorns, and the Culture series. I love Joe’s writing for its mix of humor, wit, and humanity. I also really enjoy his reviews. It’s interesting that through the world of blogging and social media, there are so many people you think you know, only to realize you don’t know anything about them. Watching the video and actually seeing and hearing Joe read from his hilarious short story, “Contemptibly, a hair,” it was a reminder that I’ve never actually spoken a single word to him, even though I’ve chatted with him countless times. I guess the bigger question is, do I know Joseph Michael Owens?
