More responses to EVER from kind readers:
Luca Dipierro ('Ever is one the few books that entered in my organism through my mouth instead of my eyes.')
Daniel Bailey ('the book reads like a massive poem to no one and nothing that has ever existed.')
Kevin Wilson ('if there ever was a book created to be read while holding a feverish baby against your chest, this is the book.')
I am a literary hottie (though I don't remember saying any of the things in these quotes as I was b-day drunk).
Better news: NO COLONY 002 is now for sale. We just got the proof back from the printer, and it is a sick, sick beast, full of an absolutely butt-grinding slew of new words. We learned a lot about book design in doing 001 and as a result this one looks even better than before, inside and out.
(that amazing cover image is by Michael Berryhill)
Among these we have 2 authors publishing their first ever works in print, a monologue titled 'In Praise of Rape,' a cryptic phone game, our longest story yet in form of literary mystery about a man addicted to porn, an excerpt from Ken Sparling's most recent and as yet unpublished novel, as well as some other crazy and new as new milk words. Here is who:

(Look, how clean!)
You can now order the issue (we will have them in hand by the weekend) for $10 NO COLONY, or if you don't have 001 yet you can get both for $15, and we also are now offering a subscription for issues 002-005 for $35, which is a limited time bargain price or something market-languaged like that.
For those that have submissions still outstanding, you are in the window for future issues, as we ran out of room and therefore stopped reading before we closed the issue. So it might be a min, but it's better than a blanket rejection party, no? New subs will likely reopen after AWP.
Anyway, we hope you will purchase and enjoy this fine piece of strange meat. I have to say, from cover to cover this collection of writing makes me want to write, for every inch. I am really excited about the words in here.
We appreciate your support.
