Mixtape: Davis Schneiderman’s Blank Tape

Davis Schneiderman destroys books, steals books, maligns books, prints books, edits books. He is the author of Blank (Jaded Ibis, March 2011), a blank novel with mix tracks from Dj Spooky, with 50% of the proceeds benefitting the Tanna Center for the Arts on the pacific island Vanuatu; as well as the recent novel Drain (Northwestern, 2010). He is director of  Lake Forest College Press/&NOW Books, where he co-edits the series The &NOW AWARDS: The Best Innovative Writing. Two pieces from his “Undeath of the Author” series will appear in Artifice Issue 3. Many things about him can be found here.
