New Identity Theory “Issue” Features Tom Grimes, Chat Room Fiction, Gary Lutz
Over at Identity Theory, we tend to avoid regular publishing schedules, but I’ve recently been experimenting with a weekly “issue” system for putting new articles online.
This week’s issue features:
* an interview with author Tom Grimes, who, in addition to literary matters, puts forth the idea that America has “for years” been a fascist country, and claims that Kanye’s famous “George Bush doesn’t care about black people” outburst really only applies to poor black people.
* a piece of fiction written in a sort of chat-room + email format.
* a review of the Calamari Press reissue of Gary Lutz’s (very awesome) Stories in the Worst Way
* an essay on “empathy marketing”
Publishing multiple articles at once helps me appreciate the range of quality content being put forth by our contributors and editorial teams.
Speaking of which, we are looking for a new fiction reader.
