Here is the beautiful spread of The Atlas Review's third issue! The cover photo is by the very talented Traci Matlock. (Note: This is a screenshot from the work-in-progress, but I feel confident enough in the overall feel of it to share.) I feel incredibly strong about this issue. The content is phenomenal, and at 170+ pages, is certainly our fattest volume yet.
Issue 3 features poetry by CAConrad, Nicole Steinberg, Morgan Parker, Wendy Lotterman, Joanna C. Valente, Dan Encarnacion, Anthony Bartels, Sarah V. Schweig, Craig Morgan Teicher, Joshua Ware, Joe DeLuca, M. Callen, Ted Dodson, Jennifer Nelson, Marcus Slease, Tim Earley, Laressa Dickey, Josh Kalscheur, Krystal Languell, Liz Dosta, Jonathan Aprea, and Curtis Rogers; fiction by Nelly Reifler, John Jodzio, Valerie Cumming, Jesse Kohn, and Marlo Starr; nonfiction by Soleil Ho, Dale Megan Healey, and Sean H. Doyle; visual arts by Traci Matlock, Aliene de Souza Howell, Sarbani Ghosh, and Dan Ivec; and interviews with Etgar Keret and Sheila Heti.

You shit yourself, you purge yourself. In comics, the panels system is also a system of retention and expulsion. Comics also have a lot to do with childhood. Crap interests me because as a child I often shit my pants. Actually, it was because I refused to go and shit. I held it all in. Psychologists say children do that to make their parents understand that they’re in the shit.

My interview with George Saunders is online at The Atlas Review. Yay! Excited to share issue 3’s interviews with Etgar Keret and Sheila Heti in early 2014, too. Woohoo!
When I got to 0:06 I was amazed, but what happens at 2:40 made me give up my life and merge with the future. You won’t believe what this 8 year old has to say about time, emptiness and celebrity. We can all learn something from one simple trick. 11 Buzzfeed articles that are links to other Buzzfeed articles. 25 things that only I can understand.
I’ve never met anyone with my first name, let alone also my last name, apparently because they all died
