I have decided to try to take my Brian Evenson 'Fugue State' story-by-story series around the web a little, reviewing them in some other places such as lit blogs and/or journals, where interest accrues, to maximize spread. If anyone running a venue of such sort where this kind of post would be welcome is interested in letting me guest post about a story, please drop me a line.
Meanwhile, the debut issue of John Madera's The Chapbook Review is up, including two interviews between Chris Higgs and myself, each asking the other questions about our respective Publishing Genius chapbooks.
A ton of other chapbook related essayisms etc. make this site exciting and right and good, I think.
Over at EWN, Dan is using this month to talk about each piece in the new issue of Unsaid, with follow up questions with David McLendon about why the piece was selected for publication, what he likes about it, etc. Really wonderful already, and it's only day one.
The prizes for the Lamination Colony 'This is not not a Contest' have become just ridiculous, now definitively valued at more than $500, including cash. Entries will remain open until the end of the day this Friday, so get on it. Gracious thanks to the many many generous souls who agreed to send in prizes, I wish I could enter, I am almost afraid to open the submissions inbox for all the good.
On Friday night read Tina May Hall's All the Day's Sad Stories, really awesome and fun to read, you should buy it. The total package.
OK, going to go try to finish this story I've been working on for a couple months now, i don't know why, I'm really behind on a lot of stuff...
I want a shirt with a big pear on it, that's all.
