Userlands: New Fiction Writers from the Blogging Underground (Little House on the Bowery)by Dennis Cooper
Synopses & Reviews
Fiction. Part of Akashic's Little House on the Bowery Series, Dennis Cooper's USERLANDS: NEW FICTION FROM THE BLOGGING UNDERGROUND, compiles short stories from fiction writers contributing to the ever-growing network of literary blogging. Contributors include Bett Williams, Aaron Nielson, Eddie Beverage, Will Fabro, Stanya Kahn, Nicholas Messing, and many others. "Their fiction ranges in character from adventurous literary works to pieces that are astonishingly emotional, sexual, and/or personally revealing. What unifies them is their extraordinary talent, their daring and highly individualistic approaches to composing fiction, and the breathtaking freshness, charge, and skill of their prose."-Dennis Cooper
Dennis Cooper's latest curated volume explodes with blog fiction of breathtaking freshness, charge, and skill.
This anthology brings to light some of the new fiction writers who are using the Internets labyrinthine array of blogs and personal web pages to expose, test, and develop their work. They are gay, straight, young, old, and in some cases still searching for their identities.
