Carnahan’s cryptic, enigmatic fiction has found form for decades in collaborations with composers and musicians. When The Time Is Now was first published by Burning Books, Carnahan gave the book to friends asking them to put the words to music using any story they liked. The works on this compilation were created from 1983 to 1996.
