THE DISAPPEARED in New Ohio Review

The new issue of /nor is out. I have a story in it, the story that (as of now) opens my collection SCORCH ATLAS, called 'The Disappeared'. It is about disease and a lost mother and payperview porn and transference.



The issue is fucking stacked with crazy good people, including Carole Maso, K. Silem Mohammad, Ariana Reines, Tony Hoagland, Johannes Goransson & Joyelle McSweeney, and many others.

This is one of the best looking journals I've been in. I would order it even if I weren't. It has a nice ink smell. Holding it makes me feel good.

They have also 'featured' my story on their website as a PDF: here.

Thank you to John Bullock and the rest of /nor.

To receive this publication, I gave up 13 weeks of coffee, rendering myself incapable of coherent sentence, during which time I sat at my desk without blinking and scoured eBay for a portal into the dog.

My life is beginning to more and more seem to resemble GARFIELD WITHOUT GARFIELD:


New LAMINATION COLONY should be up by the end of the week.
