zoomoo 17 cover

The last issue of experimental lit journal Zoomoozophone Review was released yesterday, May 17.  This blow to the international avant garde is tempered by the massive trove of material in ZR Issue #17, which features 116 pages filled with work from 40 contributors, including: Alexander Limarev, Alexandra Naughton, Angela Caporaso, Austin Islam, Beach Sloth, billy bob beamer, Cand Torrance, Carmen Tracey, Cecelia Chapman, CL Bledsoe, Clay Thistleton, David Patton, Francesco Aprile, Glen Armstrong, Heath Brougher, J. D. Nelson, Jeff Bagato, Jeff Harrison, Joel Chace, John M. Bennett, John Pursch, Keith Higginbotham, Kristie Shoemaker, Kushal Poddar, manuel arturo abreu, Nanna Juul Lanng, Nathan Spoon, Nathan Stapleton, Nicholas Bon, Nico Vassilakis, Patricia Walsh, Rosaire Appel, Sanjeev Sethi, Shane Allison, Sheila E. Murphy, Susan Sweetland Garay, Texas Fontanella, Volodymyr Bilyk, Yrik-Max Valentonis, and Yuan Changming.

I’m pleased to be part of this issue with three texts: “Flip Operations I,” “To This End,” and “Everything Goes Now.” These are part of a new series exploring the possibilities of AI computers performing transactional negotiations, with stripped down vocabularies of English words used in ways that do not mirror normal syntax.

You can purchase an issue of Zoomoozophone Review #17 (price starts at $0) on Gumroad using this link.

One poem and five asemic works in Angry Old Man

AOM 6 coverOnline experimental lit journal Angry Old Man released Issue 6 today, with another great roster of visual, text and video work from across the spectrum of the international literary avant garde. I’m pleased to be represented by one text piece and five asemic calligraphy works. The text piece is part of a new series of experiments involving a very restricted vocabulary intended to mirror the kind of language invention of an AI transaction robot. View the text piece here, and the asemic calligraphy here.
