  1. I discovered Permafrost lit mag today. The first word I clicked on was “Time” which took me to your “The Time I listened to Nothing But Warren Zevon…” A very evocative read. Nicely Done. And always a pleasure to meet a fellow lore-mistress of his canon. My wife’s favorite song is “Werewolves,” so, naturally, our dog of 4.5 years had to be named Zevon. Do you own a copy of “Wanted Dead or Alive”? I heard there were only 27 copies sold. Just kidding, but not even this Zevon lore master is familiar with that one. Just yesterday I browsed through my Zevon collection. Bad Luck Streak… is vastly underrated! Best, Tom (near Eureka, CA)

    • Hi Tom! Thanks for reading my story and for your kind words. It’s always good to meet a fellow Zevon fan–sometimes it feels like there are so few of us! I love that you named your dog Zevon. I actually DO own a copy of Wanted Dead or Alive, and there are a few tracks on there that I really like (Tule’s Blues, Traveling in the Lightning, Bullet for Ramona). I totally agree about Bad Luck Streak. It’s one of my favorite Zevon albums!
