Best Enthusiastic Local Author 

Yes, JAMIE ALLEN has published a collection of short stories (The Horrible Humour, which you probably haven't read), and he's an occasional CL columnist, but Allen's real claim to fame is his zany, irreverent "Very First" series of pseudo-literary events. The series brought in Neal Pollack for a freaky reading outside Criminal Records that even a little rainstorm couldn't squash, and has also hosted a reading / music / dance show in conjunction with the Atlanta Film Festival. In a city known for its literary apathy, it's refreshing to see someone put on programming for a crowd not collecting Social Security.
