Barzilla and Other Psalms
by Edwin Decker


Edwin Decker is a freelance writer living in San Diego, California. He has contributed to magazines and newspapers around the country including, Modern Drunkard Magazine, San Diego Reader, The San Diego Union-Tribune, The Stranger (in Seattle), Tucson Weekly, Cleveland Scene, Creative Loafing (Atlanta) and San Diego CityBeat, the latter of which runs his sarcastic, some-what impolite column called Sordid Tales. Decker grew up in Monroe, New York where he worked in the produce department of a large supermarket chain and floundered without direction. In 1985, he moved to San Diego where he worked as a drunken bartender in
several renowned concert venues. Currently, Decker lives in a small San Diego burg called Ocean Beach with his wife, his cat, no kids and still, unbelievably, no direction. You can read his columns and other writings at:
