We're very excited to announce that Blake Butler will be contributing a fairly long, truly weird piece to our first issue.
Many (most?) of you already know Blake's work, but for those who don't, he is the author of two books, Scorch Atlas (Featherproof) and Ever (Calamari). His novel There is No Year will be coming from Harper Perennial in April of next year. He is the mother of HTMLGiant, he is the father of Lamination Colony, he is the brother of No Colony, he is the blogger of his blog.
Here is his story "The Copy Family." Here is his story "The Gown from Mother's Stomach." There are links to many other stories at his blog.
Here he is reading from Ever.
Hope everyone is getting all revved up.
