1. Dennis Cooper, I really only found out about you recently. I am in love and maybe also a little afraid of you.
3. The first issue of The Reprint is out, bringing “new life to your already printed material.” Including a reprinting of a Roxane Gay piece that appeared in Artifice Issue 1, a Michael Martone story originally printed in the Sonora Review, and a Michael Martone contributor’s note originally printed in Columbia.
(If you like the Roxane Gay piece, here’s the moment where I casually suggest that maybe you want to check out the issue in which it appeared?)
4. “And the soul’s dark night will slowly be lowered through me. That is why I now slowly fold myself like a muscle against the wet clay to be met with the flesh against the sleep-gland’s mouths.” The (possibly final) issue of Lamination Colony is, I feel, a challenge for all of us to step our damn game up. I kind of want to do an entire post just on this issue. I might.
6. Also this.
7. Oh, and this: “Poem Found in Novel (Atmospheric Disturbances, by Rivka Galchen),” by Todd Robinson.
