This morning I took the time to listen in to Radio National’s Book Show dedicated to the late, great Richard Brautigan.
The show also focuses on the (relatively) new Australian literary journal, Torpedo, published by Falcon vs. Monkey, Falcon Wins. In 2009, Torpedo magazine, published a Richard Brautigan issue to commemorate the 25th anniversary of his untimely death. The issue features short fiction from Brautigan’s daughter Ianthe, alicia sometimes, Josephine Rowe, Chris Flynn and Adam Ford to name but a few and it also features a generous selection of Brautigan’s own short fiction and poetry.
You can also read an interview with Torpedo editor, Chris Flynn about how the issue came about.
Ah yes, listening to the words of Brautigan, makes for a fine start to any day… Wherever you may be, hope yours is a good one!
