1) My review of Lance Olsen’s THEORIES OF FORGETTING is now up at The Collagist. I loved Olsen’s “destructuralized” novel, which reflects so heavily the theories and work of earthworks artist Robert Smithson (especially his Spiral Jetty).
2) An interview I conducted with Julie Lawson Timmer is now up at The Rumpus. Timmer’s debut novel, FIVE DAYS LEFT, deals, in part, with a woman suffering from Huntington’s Disease. My interview focuses heavily on Timmer’s research techniques, but should also be interesting to those writing about characters in states of suffering.
3) My flash of satire, “[Title Withheld Pending Naming Rights Negotiations],” is now up at one of Entropy magazine, one of my favorite websites that have sprouted up in the last year or so.
Anyways, do take care
