Big Other Contributors’ News, #24

Radiohead just released a new album; and we’ve got some news to share, too. Thanks for reading!

A poem from Elaine Castillo‘s in-progress book of poems CANDIDA: A TRANSLATION was published at Sink Review.

Molly Gaudry‘s We Take Me Apart has been nominated for a 2011 PEN/Joyce Osterweil Award for Poetry and is now in its 3rd printing. Her poem “Desire” recently appeared on Verse Daily as a Web Weekly Feature, and she has new poems in Wonderfort and Dinosaur Bees.

Greg Gerke‘s close reading of Andrei Tarkovsky’s Solaris is at The Nervous Breakdown. The story “At Home and Abroad with the Depews” is at Dark Sky Magazine.

A D Jameson‘s first book, the prose collection Amazing Adult Fantasy, is now available.

Paul Kincaid‘s review of Lightborn by Tricia Sullivan was in Interzone 232, of The Secret History of Fantasy edited by Peter S. Beagle was in Bull Spec 4; of Colonialism and the Emergence of Science Fiction by John Rieder was in Foundation 108; and of One by David Karp was at SF Site. His essays on The Book of Illusions by Paul Auster, Cloudsplitter by Russell Banks, Dhalgren by Samuel R. Delany, and Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep by Philip K. Dick, all appear in Masterplots, 4th Edition edited by Laurence W. Mazzeno (Salem Press, November 2010).

Michael Leong has new writing in Fringe and Flatlander Underground.  He’s also psyched to have just won an advance copy of J.A. Tyler’s A Man of Glass & All the Ways We Have Failed (Fugue State Press, 2011). Woohoo!

John Madera reviewed Robert Steiner’s Negative Space (Rain Taxi: Review of Books); Jeremy M. Davies’s Rose Alley (The Brooklyn Rail); and Bradford Morrow’s The Diviner’s Tale (The Rumpus).

Stacy Muszynski continues as a PEN Prison Writing mentor and National Book Critic Circle member. She takes fellowship at Virginia Center for the Creative Arts beginning Feb. 17.

Davis Schneiderman published a whole bunch of stuff in many different places including reviews of other books and pieces in anthologies and some other writers’ words with his name real big and prominent even though even the most casual reader will see he didn’t write WORD ONE in those stories and poems so take THAT James Joyce and Herman Melville and Caedmon you jerks and and Davis dressed as a mime at AWP and read from Glenn’s Beck’s novel _The Overton Window_ which apart from the ridiculous bits he performed for the Table X reading there are actually a few sort-of-okay lines in that otherwise silly bestseller probably from the ghost writers but who really knows who wrote what and who owns these words and all that other stuff about genius and authenticity and inspiration and self-expression which is why his new novel is BLANK that’s right blank or largely so and that gets some people all charged up and gets their blood boiling and whatever you can buy it here that’s right you are paying merely for packaging and the chapter titles and the pyrographic illustrations from Susan White and the fact that DJ Spooky contributed Bach remix tracks to the fine-art edition that costs $7500 so why not order two or more or at least read all about this in Forbes.com where Davis’s name appeared and now he’s filthy rich and doesn’t want your money you dirty capitalist swine unless you are interested in cultivating a cool disinterest the way a prairie dog in space might dream about paramecia.

Amber Sparks co-wrote a piece with Robert Kloss that was inspired by Beckett’s Fizzle #6, and it appeared in Necessary Fiction in January.

Rachel Swirsky‘s short story, “Diving After the Moon,” was published in the February issue of Clarkesworld. She’s also pleased to announce that her novella from Subterranean Press, “The Lady Who Plucked Red Flowers Beneath the Queen’s Window,” has been nominated for the Nebula Award.

J. A. Tyler’s second book A Man of Glass & All the Ways We have Failed is now available for pre-order from Fugue State Press.

      1. Totally agree. Even the lesser albums are not misses, which is something I can say about almost no bands that have been around as long as Radiohead. (Writing that makes me feel old. Do young people give a shit about Radiohead? Are they old news?)
