Paul Stubbs reviews Gary J. Shipley’s Theoretical Animals (BlazeVox books)
“Shipley’s prose prefers to steel-plate itself into inversion, mental tautness, deadly emanations, and we are all invited to wade through the desolate swamp of his imaginings as, like any truly radical writer, he unveils a world that seems to surpass our own cognizant capacity to believe in it. The writing is devastating enough to fossilize older, more redundant literary forms, his aphoristic litanies and murderous cacophonies glass-case our more conventional modes of writing forever, while breaking down the DNA of the traditional reader-writer relationship, just as Lautréamont believed that fiction writing served only its own tethered-end (“Even if I had no true event to recount to you, I would invent imaginary tales and decant them into your brain”). ”

Excerpts from issue 2 / extraits du numéro 2 (forthcoming / à venir)
"Traditions in literature are of course the last bloody yard fought for on the battlefield in the war between writers of a mediocre talent and those of a convulsively dull one. And Rimbaud seems to have learned at a ferocious pace that these people are beyond persuading and are best left to swing themselves from the gallows of their forever fixed mind-states. "
