Self-published

A5, 32 pages, full colour digital printing throughout, saddle stitched, 2014.

Flying the flag for self-publishing, community and writing yet again, we have a new zine from Ryan Vance one of The Queen's Head people. Snazzy, simple, and a little rude...

'Basically, I'd read an article in The Believer about erasurist poetry - the "art" of judiciously eliminating somebody else's words to create an entirely new piece of written work - and it sounded easy. I figured I could take a good swing at some erasuring of my own. Before long I was taking a sharpie to a ratty collection of WW2 poetry, and somehow managed to turn these often chilling and heartfelt records of battle into hilariously overblown homoerotic whimsies. Perhaps not my proudest moment.

Even if I can't take them seriously, I still really like them! I like that they look like censored documents, that what's left uncensored is actually pretty vulgar, that passion can be dug out from under the language of war.

Well, that, and all the smut.'
