NOCOLONY.COM Miranda Mellis excerpt

NO COLONY now has a brief excerpt from a story by MIRANDA MELLIS (author of THE REVISIONIST) the full text of which will be featured in Issue 1. It's an absolute mindeater of a story. Go take a peek and preorder the issue. Please?!?!?!?!?!?!?

We have now sold Pushcart nominations to Barry Sanders and Doris Lessing. JESUS CHRIST GET ONE BEFORE THEY'RE ALL GONE!!!!!

It is nice to buy new magazines, though, really.

I am reading Michael Kimball's DEAR EVERYBODY today, it is BEYOND. No joke.

Is there a way I can photocopy my junk and be automatically Pushcart nominated? I wish I could say I'm Johnny WADD's cousin, but alas.

yeah, i'm looking forward to reading in hardcopy. it's one of those excellent books that you can read straight through and then go right back and start over. it must feel something awesome to think about having created something like that.
