Registration Link Coming Soon About the Book
In 2005, the editors of Metro Silicon Valley, San José's alternative weekly newspaper, gave Gary Singh his own column, "Silicon Alleys," to explore the underbelly of San Jos��from a perspective only a creative native could offer. To this day, he still writes the column every week. Now a selection of Singh's greatest hits, over 250 columns in chronological order, is available in one mammoth volume, hand-picked by the columnist. Following a gnarly foreword by cyberpunk science fiction pioneer Rudy Rucker, a glorious mishmash of humanity emerges. UFO researchers sit right alongside rock stars, repo men, and professional wrestlers. Buddhist scholars hold column space with women's drinking clubs. Abandoned strip malls return to life. From punk rock to high art, from dive bars to luxury digs, from literary vibes to forgotten history, no other body of work more aptly sorts out the guts of America's 10th largest city than Singh's weekly column.
