WHOSE WHAT ARE THOSE

Some friends were talking about things they’d owned that looked like breasts. One person had a lighter shaped like a female torso that when you flicked it, LEDs lit up the nipples. Someone else had a heat-sensitive mug the clothes would come off the side of. We’d just used a bottle opener shaped like a female torso to open our bottles.

In addition to boobs, I have news:

1. MINIMAL BOOKS has translated “Interruptions,” which is in the current issue of Denver Quarterly, into Polish and published it on their site. They’re planning to publish a translation Stories of the Things That Had No Power of Their Own” in the next issue.

2. There have been a couple of reviews of Birkensnake 2: Big Other and someone who attended the reading.

3. Tomorrow, December 1, DEWCLAW will close to submissions. Pretty soon I will have to tell you who’s in the issue.
