New Facebook Page

Haven’t updated this blog in ages.  Another dead blog.  But here’s some new information: Angry Old Man Magazine’s FB page.

Go over there and follow us!

Also check out the new AOM issue.

I’ll start posting more stuff as I go on.  Not as willfully arcane this time.  Hopefully.

Launch of small press

I’m starting a new small press, A Wanton Text Production, which I hope will champion a radically new literature–or, perhaps, non-literature as it were.  You are encouraged to submit your work. I have no funding. As I’ve said before, I’m just a middle-aged burnout without an academic/publishing network (we know who they are). It’s a one-man show, folks, just like my lit rag. Therefore, I will use print on demand to publish your work. I believe in Derek Beaulieu’s dictum to give away your stuff. Ergo, everything I publish will be offered as a free downloadable PDF.

I have argued on this blog that the two competing camps–Conceptualists vs. School of Feeling–would be best served if they embraced hybrid forms. In fact, I will argue, right here and now, that genres themselves should be completely abandoned in favor of intermedia.  Genre-less literature is not an old idea. Dick Higgins formulated this idea fifty years ago! It’s time we actually put it into practice.

Enter my small press.
