Author Randy Blazak Discusses His Debut Novel


In last week's issue, Boise Weekly ran a review of Portland author Randy Blazak's debut novel, The Mission of the Sacred Heart, the story of an alien researcher's visit to the late-'90s Portland music scene.

A few days ago, he uploaded this video to YouTube, giving some of the novel's backstory, which is modeled after a 1976 record by Electric Light Orchestra that he had mistakenly believed to be a concept album as a kid.
