The new issue of LAMINATION COLONY is now live. Please enjoy.
It contains text work by Sam Pink, Louis E. Bourgeois, Sean Kilpatrick, Colin Bassett, Edith Dunham, Sam Oborne, Justin Dobbs, Catherine Lacey, John Dermot Woods, Mark Cunningham, Ryan Downey, Brian Foley and Peter Berghoef.
It contains parodies or 'creative criticism' of Michael Martone by Josh Maday, David Markson by William Walsh, David Foster Wallace by Jimmy Chen, Mike Topp by Chelsea Martin, Gordon Lish by Michael Hemmingson, William Burroughs by Bradley Sands, Russell Edson by Matthew Simmons, Dean Young by Claire Donato, Tao Lin by Justin Taylor and Lydia Davis by Tao Lin and Brandon Scott Gorrell.
It contains more 'longer' work than has ever been on the site. Lots to look at. A wide variety of stuff: a Gmail chat, a found letter, a Spam submission, a Wittgenstein form, an ebook, a prose poem cycle (or two), text messages with footnotes, a story with Ralph Fiennes in it, an essay with bibliography found in a bottle, an excerpt from a comic book novel, a text based on find/replace, and otherwise a bunch of fucked and excellent writing.
It also contains the first Lamination Colony ebook by Brandon Scott Gorrell: ALIENATED AFRAID OF FURNITURE IN BEDROOM, if you haven't heard yet.
It also contains a feature wherein contributors to the issue provided video or photographic representations of themselves preparing for quarantine. Included in these videos is Chelsea Martin putting on condoms and Jimmy Chen circling his nipples. Peter Berghoef's photos of teeth brushing greatly disturb me.
This issue is fat and full of life and has a lot of fun reading for your pleasure. I am very happy with it.
Please enjoy and tell me what you think.
