Special issue of Not One of Us

Any day that I get to share a table of contents with Sonya Taaffe and Patricia Russo is a good day--and today is one of those days! This is that rare beast, a print-only zine, so you can't read it without buying a copy and waiting for it to come through the mail, but I'm eager to have other people experience the alien, outsiderly goodness, so first three non-subscribers who send me an LJ message, I'll have a copy sent to you! ETA And I have three takers, so that offer's off the table now--thanks everyone!

Here's publisher John Benson's post about the issue:

“People who need care sometimes find it in strange places. In this collection, people variously get care from a cabal of busybodies, a demon hand in a suitcase, a dead girl spouting Moby Dick, and a stone filling in as psychiatrist. We have food you can’t eat, spiders on the ceiling, conversation and cardboard boxes, chalk outlines, and free things that come with a cost.”

Goodness of any kind is such a world-preserver, and alien, outsiderly goodness is enticing, so yes, please! (But not if the postage outside the continent is too much.)

Will do! Look for it in the weeks to come ^_^

Congratulations!!! This is so exciting. I would like a copy if you still have one. If you do, would you autograph it?

Congratulations! That's exciting!!!

I looked to try to find out how to order a copy when I start getting paid regularly, but can't find information on this particular issue. :(

Unrelated: I don't know if you've ever brought up Alice In Wonderland here but this sounds like something you'd like.

I thought you were going to link me to this one

This is interesting. It reminds me of Lusine.

The rest of Jaggery's music is really good too. I'd say it's not something I'd normally seek out, but that's because there really isn't anything else like it.

In the chorus of Nijinsky's Diaries, it sounds like she's chanting லியா and who knows, maybe she is. I don't speak Tamil.

Sounds like an interesting issue. :D

I'm sure it will be! My own copy hasn't arrived yet, but I always enjoy Not One of Us.
