  • From the harbor to the hills, Smile, Hon, You're in Baltimore! collects the tales of those on whom Mobtown has left her indelible mark. Polished, professional essays; barroom sermons delivered from the sanctity of a favorite stool; the poet's fleeting sentiment, captured in both word and snapshot – Smile, Hon offers a slice of Baltimore as told by Baltimore, presented with the time-honored DIY accessibility of a limited-run, handcrafted zine.

    A two-time Utne Reader Independent Press Award nominee, Smile, Hon has also been dubbed "Best Zine" by Baltimore Magazine (2008) and Baltimore City Paper (2004). In spring 2011, Eight-Stone Press published a special “hon” edition, exploring the term’s significance in Baltimore’s identity, past and present; other theme issues have tackled such topics as alleyways, waste, rats, scars, tattoos, crime and transit.
