I'm thrilled to say, my novel, Unside, has been accepted for publication by Dog Horn Publishing!
This is the publisher, Harvey Thomlinson, who is planning to put out my book, with Make-Do publishing, speaking in The Economist:
"The resulting book "Chengdu, Please Forget Me Tonight", a brutal indictment of a disenchanted urban China, found fans in the country's cyber-youth. It has attracted an estimated three to five million readers, according to Harvey Thomlinson, Mr Murong’s English-language publisher and translator. In 2008, the book (published in English as “Leave Me Alone: A Novel of Chengdu”) was longlisted for the Man Asian Literary prize. Known for tackling social issues, Mr Murong (pictured right) also serialised “Dancing Through Red Dust”, a novel about China's corrupt legal system, online in 2008."
Many wonders in this great publication edited by Matt Bell with reviews edited by Gabriel Blackwell.
One I'm particularly pleased about is Yuriy Tarnawsky's review of my book Collapsible Horizon. I admire his work very much, as I do all the people connected with The Collagist and Dzanc Books. I'm thrilled to be a part
Here is an interview with me in Women's Quarterly Conversation which I really appreciate.
Hi, there. I stopped posting on the blog a good while ago. I was very focused on writing 3 new books since I stopped, as well as teaching, and doing a lot of research, and writing an article for Paranoia (winter 2012).
After finishing the novels, I started up again with post- Collapsible Horizon short stories, and so I'm starting up with publications of stories again, and have been also putting out some reviews, such as for New Arcana. I'm very grateful to the magazines in this long stretch between the blogging phases who published my stories. I just can't always keep up all the websites, as I have so many.
I've also gone back to putting out e-chapbooks through LucidPlay, and am in the process of compiling a new one. I found a couple of the pieces in it so compelling when I read them I wanted to get them out with others I felt had a similar degree of intense beauty. I'm excited by the great writers whose work I'm including, and the artist who it looks like will be providing some fabulous images. It's almost filled, but I would like to include just a couple more, and would encourage women to submit.
Thank you to all the people who are coming to this site to engage more with experimental literature. The statistics are consistently exciting. The lowest it ever drops is 50 a day, around a couple hundred most often, while 400 is not uncommon. I'm glad this genre is going so strong, and material about it comes out all the time at a faster rate than before. There just wasn't that much to be found online, or in print, when I started this over 3 years ago. I wanted to revive interest in the topic and bring more attention to something that I found people tended to be confused about. And what a controversial topic among writers. I wanted to bring a common ground for people passionate about it could always come back to and find something they liked.
Now, the genre is booming, and there's been no way to keep up with all the new material coming out, but if anyone wants to see yours up here, let me know. I also continue to put new things up
You can read the review of The New Arcana HERE. A very inventive and ambitious book by Daniel Y. Harris collaborating with John Amen.
I haven't published anything in this Blog for a long time. Hi, again. I'd like to announce the submissions are open again at LucidPlay Publishing. Individual poems and brief short stories are considered now for an e-chapbook anthology.
One author submissions for e-chapbooks, and any length submissions for literary criticism are also being accepted.
