Are you superstitious? If so, this may be your lucky day. We’re accepting manuscripts for BLACK SCAT REVIEW‘s thirteenth issue, theme: “Superstition.”  Deadline: Sept. 30th, 2015.

Issue #13 may, in fact, precede #12 (“Roussel’s Revenge”). That’s just the way we roll around here. Meanwhile, we’re still looking for texts in the spirit of Raymond Roussel.

Manuscripts should be sent to: black scat (at) outlook (dot) com

We strongly advise that you read an issue before submitting.


Up To His Old Tricks

Yes, Professor C. W. Snowdrop is up to his old tricks again, and you’ll find them all inside Snowdrop in Africa when it hits the shelves on Halloween. It’s #6 in our Absurdist Texts & Documents series and nearly impossible to describe. Imagine a film noir starring Groucho Marx, with a screenplay by Raymond Roussel, and directed by Alfred Hitchcock—and that still doesn’t explain this metafiction by Norman Conquest.

You’ll just have to read it to believe it. CLICK HERE to purchase.
