Greatest Uncommon Denominator Magazine #1

GUD: Greatest Uncommon Denominator, Issue 1

Rate this book
Issue 1 comes to life with Darby Larson's "Electroencephalography" where an experiment in robot-building goes terribly awry. And if you've ever woken up with an unexpected physical deformity--say, an arrow in your heart--you'll truly enjoy the next story. There's also a smattering of flash fiction and psychedelia; a straight-out story where things aren't what they seem, poetry that takes you from the perverse to the sublime, some magic realism, science fiction, and a few letters to another species thrown in for good measure. We haven't forgotten those of you with a literary bent. In addition, the artwork in this issue is particularly strong, with oil paintings, watercolors, photography, and photo illustrations complementing the words with which they are paired. Please let us know what you think of Issue 1, and thanks for reading GUD.

eclectic and lovely. and I helped copy-edit it. :) particular favorites: stories from darling, tidhar, hamilton, conn, shawl, and procter; nonfiction from dumais. (and dumais was particularly fun to edit. not that that influences my recommendations.)
