Excuse me, that should say “Mark Haskell Smith wrote Baked,” a pot-laced Los Angeles crime and revenge novel. Experimental botanist Miro Basinas wins Amsterdam’s Cannabis Cup with a strain that tastes like mangos, after which he is promptly gunned down and jacked of his prize-winning stash by an enterprising gangster, whom Miro then goes in search of. Gangsters, drugs, revenge—did I mention this is a funny novel? And that Smith will be at Vroman’s this Thursday to discuss and sign the book? I didn’t? Must have slipped my mind.
