  • Read the astounding tale of how I gave the Mudlarks their name.


  • Scholars even read Gil Thorp!  Here is his bib (that's academic talk for bibliography):
       Hagen, Patricia  Gil's World Journal of Popular Culture Vol. 31.3 Winter 1997, pp 47-54

She must be a fan.  Patricia says Gil is "a giant among prep coaches."  She also points out that some of the characters tend to resemble each other . . .

"The Gil Thorp High School Theme Park," First Reading XII; Conference on American Culture, University of Minnesota-Duluth, May 1992.

"Gil Thorp's Homeboys: Adolescence without Sex, Drugs, or Rock & Roll," Popular Culture Association, Louisville, March 1992.
