He is director of the multimedia history project Shaping San Francisco and was one of the founders and editors of the San Francisco magazine Processed World. Carlsson has edited four books, published a novel, After the Deluge, (Full Enjoyment Books: 2004) and his most recent work is Nowtopia (AK Press: 2008).
He will be in Vancouver from June 16th – 20th as part of Car Free Vancouver Day!
