Hey Gang — we’re printing up these nifty tee shirts to sell on tour!  If you’re not going to be able to make it out to any of the tour stops, we’re making them available for pre-order too — order now and we’ll ship them right to your door once they’re available!

Shirts come in S, M, L, and XL and are two-color black and cream prints on 100% ORGANIC RED COTTON! Nice.

Or PayPal to kingcat_paypal AT hotmail DOT com


BE SURE TO SPECIFY WHICH SIZE YOU’D LIKE!

PLEASE NOTE:  I’ll be on tour until the end of September, so pre-ordered shirts will ship in OCTOBER. Rest assured we’ll get them out to you as soon as possible!

Thank you!  All proceeds go to the Gibby Dog Fund.

The other BIG news in these parts is that my new book, THE HOSPITAL SUITE, will be out very soon– debuting at SPX in mid-September.  I’ll be following that with a tour of the Northeast and Midwest in late-September, and the West Coast in November.  Tour dates are listed below, and more will be added as they’re confirmed!

While on tour I’ll be screening the King-Cat documentary ROOT HOG OR DIE at many of the stops!  DVD’s etc will also be available.  The movie will premiere at SPX.

Lastly, I’m also at work on King-Cat #75, which will be a special double-sized tribute to me dear cat Maisie Kukoc.  I’m hoping to have this out by year’s end, but given my touring schedule it may be early 2015.  In any case, I’ll keep you all up to date. I’ll be updating the news on this King-Cat site every month or so, but to get more frequent info you have plenty of other options:
