FOX FORCE 5. ALTERNATE COVER


FOX FORCE 5
CHAPBOOK COLLECTIVE
PAPER HERO PRESS
160 PGS.

FEATURING:

ELIZABETH ELLEN
ANDREA KNEELAND
BRANDI WELLS
SUZANNE BRUNS
LYDIA COPELAND


Here's what some folks already said:

"Moving from Elizabeth Ellen's aggressively sexual women to Andrea Kneeland's carefully enumerated tragedies, from Brandi Wells' non-realist replacement fathers to Suzanne Burns' witty fantasticism and Lydia Copeland's often second-person dreamings, this collection covers a swath of literary ground as broad and varied as the stylistic variances of its very talented writers. Fox Force 5 is a revelation, both sexy and funny, and from its pages leap forth these five great minds and hearts, shining out from underneath the gleaming surface of their suprising stories and their always inventive language."
--Matt Bell

"A joy to read. Each piece in this collection is its own world, beautifully wrought. Lydia Copeland's prose poetry shimmers off the page."
- Kathy Fish

"I'm drawn to the strong, sensual voice in these lovely, visceral pieces by Lydia Copeland, for the way she loads her prose with physical details that become much greater than their sum. Her unsentimental observations are to be savored - visions of family life, family solidarity, and unexpected violence. She shows us how the living go about the impossible through characters that are equally delicate and strong. The driving rhythm in these prose poems create the effect of music on the reader- the cumulative effect is stunning."
- Meg Pokrass

"If FOX FORCE 5 was a relationship Elizabeth Ellen would be the part where we are breaking, not yet broken but tearing apart, ripping; and Andrea Kneeland would be our aggressive sex, the angry rug-burned knees and all the yelling; Brandi Wells would be the place where we don’t know each other anymore but it seems like there is still something left, something shredded but worth saving; and Suzanne Burns would be that time when we still thought there was love, but it was a kind of beautiful, horrific, frightening love; and Lydia Copeland would then be, in our end and our beginning, coupling as a memory, the way back when our hands first met and there was no way of knowing what was ahead. How mesmerizing it is to live in this relationship, if only as we read it out."
- J. A. Tyler

HOSTAGE. PETER SCHWARTZ. THE NERVOUS BREAKDOWN

New essay up from DOGZPLOT friend, contributor, and art editor, PETER SCHWARTZ. Please check it out over at THE NERVOUS BREAKDOWN. Here's a chunk:

"Wednesday, October 14th, 2009. I'm in my room on Albert Street in Augusta Maine, being held hostage. A woman almost a decade my junior has just told me she was raped last night, but for some reason she is directing all her rage at me. I'm trying to be supportive but she's hitting me with everything she has, making fun of my anthropophobia and bi-polarity. It's actually not the words that hurt so badly, it's the fact that she would go after me like this. If she knew more about me, she'd have even better ammunition."

THE ORANGE SPOTLIGHT

Thanks very much to JASON BEHRENDS for mentioning the DOGZPLOT 2009 anthology over at WHAT TO WEAR DURING AN ORANGE ALERT. And thanks very much Jason for not only generously supporting DOGZPLOT but for being a champion of indie lit as a whole. Thanks for the excellence.

Here's a bit of what he said:

"If I were to force myself to create a list of my 20 favorite small press writer's of 2009 many of them could be found in this collection. From Rusty Barnes to Jamie Iredell to Molly Gaudry to Sam Pink to xTx to Spencer Dew, this collection is overflowing with talent and creativity. Even the cover is done by an artist that I have had much respect for and interaction with this year Christy Call. This collection of flash fiction works well as a time capsule that perfectly represents on-line lit in 2009."

CAN SUCH THINGS BE. ADAM ROBINSON. PUBLISHING GENIUS


PUBLISHING TYCOON

Adam Robinson: Baltimore Magazine, Nov 209, p103
PG
Congrats Adam. You're the man. That red coat is the shit.

TALKING THE TALK

Thanks very much to MARC SCHUSTER for reviewing the 2009 DOGZPLOT ANTHOLOGY over at SMALL PRESS REVIEWS. Here's a little something something from the review:

"My favorite piece in the collection is “Dead Ringer” by Ravi Mangla. Its premise is that the narrator has discovered a perfect double for his dead father walking the aisles of a Sam’s Club. Needless to say, wacky highjinks involving a sort-of blind date with the narrator’s mother ensue, and the result is a twisted window into middle-American family values.:

Read the rest here:
http://smallpressreviews.wordpress.com/2009/11/03/dogzplot-2009/


Also, check out MICHAEL KIMBALL's interview with BEN TANZER. Here's a piece:

Michael Kimball: Why are you so funny?

Ben Tanzer: The easy answer is that somewhere not so deep inside of me is a clown who just cannot stop crying. That said, assuming you’re correct, and my children are not, I’m sure it is some combination of being a male of a certain age; growing-up on John Hughes movies, The Jerk, Stripes, Animal House, Richard Pryor Live on the Sunset Strip and Raw; watching Benny Hill and Saturday Night Live; reading MAD Magazine and National Lampoon; being Jewish, and from New York, with a father who idealized Lenny Bruce, I also think that I decided early on that humor could be disarming and distracting, useful for avoiding hard conversations and a great tool for not dealing with things you do not want to deal with. So, all of this, and whatever damage was caused at birth when I had to be delivered via forceps.

MY HEART DRAWS A ROUGH MAP. HOWIE GOOD

Howie Good’s My Heart Draws a Rough Map proceeds like a softly-spoken B-movie. Not content to just beat, the heart grieves, gives in to melancholy, takes long walks, plays baseball, makes demands like Edward G. Robinson. Drawn outside of the self, the heart doesn’t just get saddled with emotion, but is an observer, a conversationalist, enigmatic. As equally wrought with primary colors and ominous dark as child’s crayon portrait of her parents come to life, My Heart Draws a Rough Map maintains a simple surreality, tongue in cheek, and heart on sleeve (and atop roof, and on board train, and in a hundred other places).

This chapbook is wonderfully complemented with artwork done by the talented and quite sweet Mia Christopher. Please visit her website to enjoy more of her whimsical, wistful work.

FROM THE GOOD FOLKS AT BLUEPRINTREVIEW


BluePrintReview Issue 22

The new issue of BluePrintReview is live. It's a special issue, based entirely on reprints of previously published pieces. The official theme, derived from the pre-published approach is: 're /visit /cycle /turn'.The issue itself starts in Not Technicolor, moves on to The Birth of the Universe and to Antibodies, picks up on Fragments, a Keepsake, -- and various other things and themes -- , and ends some steps from Eternity in South Bronx.

Every featured text and image also includes the link to the original publication, adding an extra dimension to the interconnections and convergence of texts and images.

Extras include: a list of lost+found online magazines, a further-reading page, memories of the days before the internet, and some notes on the process.

Enjoy the retrospective ~

Holy shit. These are some amazing words. Here's an excerpt from SO MUCH OF THE SAME:

"I want to punch you in the face, make you cry. I want you to punch me back before rape-fucking me. Then I’ll cry too. A Stevie Wonder song will play right then over the smell of a hamster cage and later on, realizing there is blood on the floor and on our hands, we’ll laugh with washcloths in the bathroom—cool-water-washing each other and kissing the pain away so sweetly. I’ll get you a glass of water from downstairs. Just for your thirst because that's how much I love you."

SMOKELONG QUARTERLY. RANDALL BROWN

This issue, as always, contains many great pieces of flash fiction from many great writers.

But it also includes a goodbye letter from SLQ's long time Lead Editor, RANDALL BROWN, who is passing on his duties to take over the reigns as Program Director for the Creative Writing MFA at ROSEMONT COLLEGE in Philadelphia. So, congrats Mr. Brown.

Here's a few words on Randall from the SLQ big dogg, DAVE CLAPPER:

"Although it's seemed like a slow process, the gains flash fiction has made among "serious" literary circles over the past five years are enormous. That a writer who specialized in flash would be asked to run an MFA program five years ago was probably unthinkable. And yet here we are. That Randall is the person who should have achieved that position seems obvious. Rosemont College may not realize what an incredible hire they've made just yet. If they don't, they will soon. They've taken the first step toward putting a little-known school on the map, toward making Rosemont the place writing students think of first when they realize they want to pursue the wildly growing form of flash fiction. I can't wait to start reading submissions here from the graduates who emerge from that program."

JUST WHEN YOU THOUGHT IT WAS SAFE TO EAT FRUIT SNACKS


"Sarah Palin, the former Alaska governor and Republican vice presidential candidate, has finished her memoir just four months after the book deal was announced, and the release date has been moved up from the spring to Nov. 17, her publisher said.

"Governor Palin has been unbelievably conscientious and hands-on at every stage, investing herself deeply and passionately in this project," said Jonathan Burnham, publisher of Harper. "It's her words, her life, and it's all there in full and fascinating detail."

Palin's book, her first, will be 400 pages, said Burnham, who called the fall "the best possible time for a major book of this kind."

The book now has a title, one fitting for a public figure known for the unexpected — "Going Rogue: An American Life."

Harper, an imprint of HarperCollins, has commissioned a huge first printing of 1.5 million copies."

AMPERSAND BOOKS. THE THINGS WE DO UNDER STARS.

Ampersand Books is making its debut with Do Something! Do Something! Do Something!, a novel from Joseph Riippi, and Under What Stars, poetry from Ryan J. Davidson.

The press release had this to say:

Like Roth’s Newark, Atwood’s handmaiden, or the most recent work of Joseph O’Neill, Do Something! DO Something! Do Something! conveys an entire people’s existential frustration in the wake of national crises.

With dirty prose evoking Johnson’s Jesus’ Son and a subtlety approaching Carver’s “Cathedral,” Riippi draws the collective tale of American uncertainty into a new millenium—the story of three young people searching for definitiveness and stability in an increasingly volatile and shaky homeland. A critic chants Sontag in a mental hospital; a playwright flees human shrapnel; a starfish tatoo endows a woman with newfound strength. do something!... is a story of great literary power.


Joseph was born in Seattle and lives in New York, where he’s finishing up an MFA. His other work can be found in The Brooklyn Rail, The Bitter Oleander, KNOCK, New Delta Review, Soon Quarterly, and Salamander.

DONALD RAY POLLOCK. INTERVIEW. THE SOUTHEAST REVIEW


Good interview. I found these two gems at the end, both cncerning novel writing:

Q: What was the greatest surprise for you in your most recent writing?

A: The greatest surprise that’s occurred in my current project is discovering that one of the main characters is not the ruthless killer I had imagined him to be.

Q: What writerly habit would you most like to break?

A: Going back over the previous day’s work instead of pushing forward.

RAY SUCCRE. AMPHISBAENA


from DOGZPLOT contributor and friend, RAY SUCCRE:
DD
I’m sending out a notice announcing the release of my new novel, Amphisbaena, through Cauliay Publishing. While mass-mailouts are fairly annoying, and certainly impersonal, they’re also somewhat necessary. If I’ve sent this to a submission-only address, I apologize. My address book is labeled well, though things can slip through at times. Also, I offer the obligatory apology to anyone who receives this email more than once.

There will only be this one announcement regarding the book.

So, Amphisbaena is out, available in a variety of places, including Amazon and others. It can also be ordered through your local bookstore:

Title: Amphisbaena

Author: Ray Succre

ISBN: 0955899273

From back cover:
BB
“A sober disinterest in relationships causes Bill Sherman, failing calendarist, to abandon dating for many years. When pressured into a speed dating event by his brother, Bill meets Amy and decides to attempt a relationship again. He learns quickly, however, that Amy is two people: The inseparable Amy and Janine. These two women design to date Bill in tandem, both to his confusion and enjoyment. Where Amy holds Bill dear to her heart, Janine is unable to function outside of physical pleasure. Bill soon discovers that this strange predicament is only the beginning of a much larger system of rules and interaction, and the relationship changes more when Bill realizes that the two women happen each to be one half of an ancient, two-headed black snake. Amy is the alpha head and has subjugated her poison in an attempt to understand human notions of beauty. Bill is not allowed to touch her. Janine is the enticer head and may not be in league with Amy where Bill is concerned."

“Can a man love if there is only appetite? Will he care more deeply for the woman he can never touch? What happens when monogamy becomes taboo and a fine-tuned machine of murder learns the human consequence of going against one's nature for a greater meaning?

“Laden with whimsical depiction and a foraging exposition on gender, occupation, and dating in modern society, Amphisbaena is the story of three people trapped somewhere between nature and culture, through a humorous adventure into the biological mess of love and romance.”

Yes, it’s a modern, experimental romance novel about a man dating a sometimes two-headed snake.

A recent review of Amphisbaena:

More Information:

raysuccre@hotmail.com

Now, for anyone wanting to read the book without buying a print copy, there is an ebook version, free for anyone and everyone, which includes a large assortment of special features. The download for this is:

http://www.daedalao.com/downloads/Amphisbaena.zip

I have also created a Reviewer's Edition of the book, to send to various people for the purpose of review. I'll provide this free to anyone interested in reading the book for review purposes. It is identical to the above program, but comes on labeled disc with insert art and a little more information. Let me know with an address and I’ll send one out to you.

If there is anyone who would be willing to do me a great favor, I'd be indebted to anyone willing to mention the book to their local bookstore owner. I'm not asking anyone to do this, but if you find yourself in the bookstore and it comes to mind, an idle mention would be wonderful.

Most importantly, I just want people to read it. We all know how that is.

Cordially,

Ray Succre

ANTHEM. CL BLEDSOE

CL Bledsoe has published work in over 200 journals and anthologies, including The Cimarron Review, Nimrod and The Arkansas Review. Winner of the Blue Collar Review's Working People's Poetry Contest, he is also a 3-time Pushcart Prize nominee. He is an editor for Ghoti Magazine and the author of a chapbook entitled_______(Want/Need)

"Fresh, funny, hip, anarchic, jaded, secretly hopeful, angry, wry, laid-back: to read CL Bledsoe's Anthem is to enter a world that may make you twitch - but will surely help you keep on keeping on. These songs of punked-out innocence stage-strut across the page, even when they claim they're simply slacking on the couch. Join Frog and Death and the absinthe squirrels on a savvy, consciousness-jolting road-trip through the landscape of right now. I loved this smart and artful book. I bet you will to. Open it. Find out."
-Jeanne Larsen, winner of the AWP poetry book award

"CL Bledsoe's Anthem is succinct, shrewd and contemporary. Bledsoe is a modern-age poet with the unique ability to bring the reader smack into the moment with him ... Anthem's poems are no exception. Often confessional, occasionally biting, Bledsoe proves once again that he is the poet for generation X, Y and whatever lies beyond."
-Patricia Gomes, editor of Adagio Verse Quarterly and poetry moderator of iVillage's Poet's Workshop

WHEELHOUSE: PRESS - CROSS CULTURAL ANTHOLOGY or DAVID WOLACH'S GUIDEBOOK TO BEING AN ASSHOLE

So... WHEELHOUSE, in conjunction with EVERGREEN STATE COLLEGE, released their PRESS anthology.

I was solicited by their editor DAVID WOLACH, I sent them an essay and it was accepted for presentation and publication, I flew out to Washington and presented it, LARINA WARNOCK from THE EXTERNALIST wrote this about it:

"This panel generated some of the best critical discussion I’ve seen in months, largely, I think, because the three panelists (comedian Bill Barr, writer/editor Barry Graham, and writer/student Jeff Konen) were coming at the same subject from three very different directions and, more importantly, so obviously cared about the subject. I was utterly taken in by Graham’s reading—the gut honesty of it..."

So, now the anthology is out, but somehow my essay was discarded, even though he emailed me a few months ago and told me it would be included. I guess there was no room for it, since they had to make room for the work of the editors, including his own...

KEEP YOUR PINKIES OUT

Thanks to everyone who came down to Atlantic City to read and hang out. I would give ya'll a good recap, but I won't. You shoulda been there suckas.
