particularly unconventional

I just got mentioned on Canadian Radio. Emma Healey, editor-in-chief of the Incongruous Quarterly, was asked on "Here and Now" on CBS's Radio One, about any "particularly unconventional" submission that they'd recieved - their mission is to "publish the unpublishible". She just emailed me saying that my submission, all 150 of Shakespeare's sonnets run through a bank or randomisers and algorythms, was "one of the first that sprang to mind." I'm very happy to have that dubious honour. Go Inconguous Quarterly!

Long ago, in childhood, when Summer reverberates and feels and throbs all over, it begins to circumscribe my body along with my self, and my body gives it shape in turn: the "joy" of living, of experiencing, of already foreseeing dismembers it, this entire body explodes, neurons rush toward what attracts them, zones of sensation break off almost in blocks that come to rest at the four corners of the landscape, at the four corners of Creation.

Urs Alleman Interview!

The author of Babyfucker (translation recently published by Les Figues) interviewed by Elizabeth Hall over at the TSky blog.

It's a fantastic interview too, well worth reading. More than that, even.
