We’ve been on a bit of a hiatus since the last issue. We all get a little crazy around the holidays and since Thanksgiving, I’ve been running rampant making sure I’ve crossed all my t’s and dotted the never ending i’s. There has been a lot of fun in there too! Lots of Christmas get-togethers and lots of thinking about future projects.
I’d like to take a moment to thank you all for your support over the last three years. (I can’t believe Thunderclap! is that old) I’ve had so much fun with this magazine, and a few late nights, but met some of the most amazing, creative people. It’s also allowed me to get back on track with some of my own writing and opened me up to a lot of the other online projects that are surfacing and re-surfacing again and again. We also have over 700 followers on twitter which is just awesome. Hopefully we can make that over one thousand come 2012.
- Caleb Ross recently put out a new book entitled “As a Machine and Parts”. You can buy it from Aqueous for $20.00 by going here http://www.aqueousbooks.com/author_pages/13_ross.htm
- Ryan Bradley has got a new book coming out soon called Code for Failure. You can pre-order it very soon. The cover for the book has been released and it’s pretty awesome because if you know Ryan, you just get it. http://ryanwbradley.blogspot.com/p/code-for-failure.html He also has a new story out at Metazen that is absolutely ridiculously good. http://www.metazen.ca/?p=8885
- Roxane Gay has had a lot of praise for her book AYITI which was put out by ADP. This is definitely worth the purchase.http://www.artisticallydeclined.net/offerings/16295-ayiti-pre-order
