UNSAID Magazine has a new print issue coming out. UNSAID Magazine has been called the descendant of Gordon Lish's THE QUARTERLY. They also have a new website, archiving all of the work they've printed in their first three issue, including: BRIAN EVENSON, MICHAEL KIMBALL, NORMAN LOCK, GARY LUTZ, ROBERT LOPEZ, PETER MARKUS, PAUL MALISZEWSKI, PADGETT POWELL, M SARKI, CHRISTINE SCHUTT, WILL ENO, NOY HOLLAND, COOPER ESTEBAN, JOANNA HOWARD, DEB OLIN UNFERTH and many ridiculously talented others. You can read all of that work online now.
For the launch of the website, they've published a short thing I wrote. It is in the web exclusives section of the site: 13 PLASTIC DOORS.
It is short and has short sentences. You can read it very fast. It owes somewhat of a debt to David Markson's WITTGENSTEIN'S MISTRESS.
I am very stoked to be involved with UNSAID. You should order the new issue.
This story may or may not be part of a novel I've started working on, to be worked on more after I finish the ebook I'm working on, which is getting very close to done, and I think now is for sure called PRETEND I AM THERE BUT VERY LITTLE. Come to think of it, 13 PLASTIC DOORS is rather connected to the ebook in certain very distinctive ways.
To receive this publication, something clicked inside me and I clicked it back and I walked a little further and felt it slipping and so I leaned against a mailbox to try to keep it from slipping more and the more I leaned the more the mailbox leaned and soon we were parallel to the ground.
Today I am 29.
