Odds & Ends, Winter 2015

Posted in Interviews, Recent Publications, Reviews with tags , , , , , , , , , , on March 11, 2015 by 6GPress

So far, 2015 has brought some very nice articles about/by Six Gallery scribblers:

A Film About Billy reviewed & Dan McCloskey interviewed by Rachel Mennies for PANK Magazine.

Jonathan Moody interviewed by Melody Nixon for The Common.

Elwin Cotman writes about (sometimes inadvertently) writing about Pittsburgh for Grist.

Ally Malinenko has been doing a lot of excellent blogging lately; this post also links to three recently-published poems.

These folks are all working on fantastic-sounding new projects, by the way. If you’re not familiar with them, check out their previous work!

11/2-11/8 Elwin Cotman Goes East

Posted in Events, Recent Publications with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on November 2, 2014 by 6GPress

Lafayette’s Hard Times Bluesman Elwin Cotman is East Coasting once again.

TONIGHT at 7, he’ll perform with Adam Dalva, Sally Wen Mao, & Henry Mills at the Mellow Pages Library in Brooklyn.

TOMORROW NIGHT at 7, he’ll perform with Rasheedah Phillips & Oki Sogumi at Revolving Bookcase in Philly.

& SATURDAY, 11/8 at 10AM, he’ll do a solo reading at the World Fantasy Convention in Arlington.

Elwin also had two pieces in Black Gate over the summer:

My Inspiration: Black Canaan“, about the Robert E. Howard novel that planted the seed of “Assistant” in The Jack Daniels Sessions EP,

& “Record of Lodoss War and Subtle Subversions“, in which he revisits the anime classic.

Imagination Motel coming real soon…

Posted in Events, Interviews, New Releases, Recent Publications with tags , , , , , on October 6, 2014 by 6GPress

Check out the lovely cover for Imagination Motel,

IM font cover 9-30-14

& the sweet blurb on the back,

Like Invasion of the Body Snatchers, one of the many movies flickering across the ghost screens of Kinder’s haunted hotel rooms, Imagination Motel infiltrates the most American landscape and replaces it with something alien. Only rather than feeling too little, these doppelgangers feel too much; rather than becoming less human, they become all the more so. Imagination Motel is a unique piece of writing that tickled me and made me want to watch every one of those movies all over again. “There is no surprise ending,” Kinder writes. And yet, there is.
—Jacob Bacharach, author of The Bend of the World

& the fun Rege Behe article in today’s Trib about Imagination Motel All That Yellow & Friday’s book launch.

UPDATE: Short Listed.

Just to clarify re: this & the Behe article, the book is called Imagination Motel not Imagination Hotel; & Six Gallery is not now, nor ever has been, Speed & Briscoe. Maybe someday.

Anyway, come to the reading & eat popcorn! Listen to poems! Receive (but wait til you get home to use) a condom! Amazing stuff.

9/27 Karl Hendricks Literary Benefit @ Modern Formations

TONIGHT…

Pura Via by Robert Isenberg

Posted in Recent Publications, Video with tags , , on September 20, 2014 by 6GPress

So, Isenberg is bicycling across Costa Rica & writing about it. He clued me in to this a couple weeks ago & sent a link to the first Tico Times article (of 11), but I’m just now catching up.

Aaand he’s done, as of 9/10.

A cool little series, & there are short videos for some of the articles. Also, you actually can click on the numbered circles on the map at the top to navigate, even though the cursor doesn’t change.

¡Que te diviertas!

In Memoriam: Victor Navarro Jr. by Andrew McKeon

Posted in Recent Publications with tags , on July 24, 2014 by 6GPress

Deep in the groan of every moment, Victor’s undying spirit trained a spotlight on life’s hidden absurdities, turning drama into comedy.

In this week’s City Paper, Andrew pays a moving & accurate tribute to his pal Vic.

6/29 Visiting Writer Reading @ Cyberpunk Apocalypse

Posted in Events, Interviews, Recent Publications with tags , , , , , , , , on June 20, 2014 by 6GPress

This week’s City Paper has a lil piece on Julie Sokolow’s Healthy Artists project that involves A Film About Billy author Dan McCloskey.

Take Daniel McCloskey, the comics artist who runs the Lawrenceville-based Cyberpunk Apocalypse writers’ project. After a face-plant bicycle accident last fall cost McCloskey three teeth, and left him with large unpaid hospital bills, Sokolow wrote about the uninsured artist on Moore’s website. The attention helped McCloskey, 27, exceed the Kickstarter goal for his latest comics project and pay down the bills.

For the record: Dan’s latest comics project is dope, his new grill is fetching as hell & Cyberpunk Apocalypse has not been Lawrenceville-based for two years. So if you’re planning to attend, for example, this…

go to Northside, not Lawrenceville. The lineup will also include the amazing Olivia Rose Mancing.
