Fishing for Richard Brautigan

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!

Literary Tattoos

Ever had the urge to have a line etched on your skin? If you answered yes, then this anthology is for you.

HTML Giant’s, Justin Taylor and Eva Talmadge are putting together a book featuring images of literary tattoos… so as they say, if you want to be in the book, get in the chair.

For years, I have wanted to have Cohen’s two hearts symbol tattooed on my arm, but my downright fear of pain has so far prevented this. This person obviously does not share my fear…


Unified Hearts


And for that matter, neither does my lovely wife …

So if you have some literary ink to share, head on over to HTML Giant and check out the submission guidelines… Somehow, I don’t think I will be in those pages.
