Ryan Call & Mike Young continue to bring the Noo. For free.

This issue of Noo has Danika Stegeman, Kevin Sampsell, D.A. Powell (whose poem has some homoerotic/Jesus/space? stuff. I think. And like.).

My prose brain is failing lately, but I can say with certainty that I enjoyed reading Cami Park’s story “Everyone the same, but not at once.”

Also, Erin McNellis presents The Difficult Farm, which I’m hoping to read soon and Mike Young presents The Book of Frank by CA Conrad, which I need to read too.  I continue to be reminded that I was all wrong about CA’s work when I read it four years ago. All wrong. Long story.

I’m there too. And am fairly excited about the art accompanying my piece. Thanks again Ryan & Mike.

Excellent Cover Art Maybe?

    Joe I really like the poem.

    it reminds me of:

    1. Buddhism in the multiplicity of deities
    2. Those science fiction Gods from when thinking really hard about space was fresh and it still seemed possible to Go There
    3. Colorful plastic toys, the 80s (the same sentiment)
    4. Those indian stores near Adam’s Morgan that sell drums and vodoo fingerings and things
    5. The cover art reminds me of all these things and adds a yellow submarine element too

    * figurines. Not fingerings. But the poem does remind me of fingerings too. Spell check had the right spirit.
