Story of a Story and Other Stories by Stephen Dixon
" This is one part Dennis Cooper, one part Ken Sparling, one part unidentified, linguistically wrought narrative. If you like Stephen Dixon, you'll love this book. Plus, who can keep their hands off anything that Fugue State Press / James Chapman pu... " Read more of this review »
Story of a Story and Other Stories by Stephen Dixon
" This is Dixon at his most uncompromising. There's almost no let up to the manic linguistic wordplay those familiar with his other work will recognize, but here it's "on steroids".

As the title suggests, we have Dixon's typical nesting of stories w... " Read more of this review »

The Conference of the Birds by Farid al-Din Attar
" What a voice! Hard for me to relate to quite a bit, it's all verrrrryyyy reality-obliterating. But burning up in the light of love... that I get. A most beautiful discourse. "

You made me confess the fears that I have. But I will tell you also what I do not fear. I do not fear to be alone or to be spurned for another or to leave whatever I have to leave. And I am not afraid to make a mistake, even a great mistake, a lifelong mistake and perhaps as long as eternity too.James Joyce

Carah Naseem LICENCE TO THRILL.

MUST BE YOUR BOOK, LOOK AT THE SPELLING.
AAHAHAHAHAHAHAH.

W.B. Wohello! Long time no language! Are you doing some sort of Meister Eckhart act? Aaron Eckhart? Amelia Earhart? I have lost the gift for spelling as you can see hear...


message 3: by W.B.

W.B. When I visit your profile I see Tao Lin's avatar. He looks like Brancusi's "Sleeping Muse" in that.

I always liked that sculpture.


message 2: by W.B.

W.B. Howdy, genius! Hope you are in a furious creative storm as usual! Wonder if you got the stupid ice storm we did. Every few weeks everything gets encased here. It's like a commercial for fiber optics. Nature is being too damn artistic. It's overkill. Autistic is the norm. We need to get back to autistic. The way the trees are communicating but in another universe. Soughing gently in the breeze.

Just talking, talking...

W.B. Jim, We've got to stop meeting like this. Hope you had a good Crimbo! A baby Jesus figurine was stolen last night. "The Baby Jesus figurine is valued at 150 dollars." The Lakers beat Phoenix. Dru fucked a camel (a plushie from IKEA). I thought about Kurt Vonnegut briefly. We served "roast beast" to everyone for Christmas, just like in Dr. Seuss. Lee had dyed the meat green and we wouldn't tell anyone what it was. They were all quite terrified. :-)
