Welcome! This blog serves two functions: 1) as a learning lab and launchpad for our upcoming series Munchen, Minnesota, scheduled for debut in April 2014 (You can read more about the series here); and 2) as a place for two neurotic Gen Xers to jabber about placemaking in supernatural fiction, what we’re reading, TV, and other assorted weirdness. Here is a little about us….

Justin Glanville grew up in suburban Cleveland, reading the fantasy-horror books of John Bellairs and avoiding playing outside. He loves anything old, dusty and mysterious, which is probably why he majored in Classics in college. Since then, he’s worked as a staff reporter for The Associated Press, an urban planner and a yoga teacher. He is a founder of Beagle, a publishing collaborative, through which he’s published New to Cleveland: A Guide to (Re)Discovering the City and the upcoming Writing Without Hiding. He was a 2012 Creative Workforce Fellow and is working on a novel. Find him online at justinglanville.com.
