PANK favorite xTx has some fine, angry words at Camroc Press Review. You can also listen to xTx read her work in the Orange Alert Podcast. Here’s something weird. I wanted to fast forward to her story so when I dragged the thing across, it stopped exactly on the very beginning of her segment. Magic. She also has writing at Metazen (look on the
left right) where she is recently joined by Allura Diez, Johnsie Noel, and Desmond Kon Zhicheng Mingdao.

Frigg’s Spring 2010 issue has gone love and it features lovely work from Jac Jemc (whose story is required reading; the word play; the images; the everything), Alec Niedenthal, Anthony Bromberg, and Gabe Durham. I must say, Frigg continues to impress me with the design and the quality of writing in every issue. It was such a (NERD) thrill to read through the new issue. Alec also has work up at Night Train, with his story After My Bar Mitzvah.
