IN OTHER WORDS #7 - Sven Birkerts



The editor occupies a strange spot—reading both for him(her)self, through his sensibility, but aware at every turn that he is also doing a kind of representative reading, trying to assemble something that speaks to a somewhat broader swath of sensibility. He merges his taste with what he projects as the taste of the journal’s desired reader. Also, the included works, in their sum, cannot but embody some kind of aesthetic. Many screens are in place as any serious contender gets evaluated. Certainly personal response is weighed against input from others on the magazine…Finally, though, it comes down to one key question. I have this work before me, I am paying closest attention…Honestly: do I care? Or do I just feel I should care?

— Sven Birkerts, Editor at AGNI

Anonymous asked: How can you say vaginas aren't exactly good looking :o



they literally look like the sarlac pit from return of the Jedi

I’m not complaining, penises are giant veiny hairy Dune sandworm-looking motherfuckers and are infinitely worse but you’d be lying if you thought any kind of genitalia was particularly good looking

When I get home from England I’m-a ask LoverMan to put his Duneworm in my Sarlaac Pit.

I love everything about this.

Just one more month!



One month from today, Dolan Morgan’s debut collection, That’s When the Knives Come Down, will hit shelves.

Have you watched the videos he’s been making for each story inTWTKCD?

Have you RSVPd for the book launch?

Most importantly, have you checked out the great presale incentives? There’s something for every reader and every budget, and no matter which option you choose, within mere weeks, you will hold your very own copy of Dolan’s collection, replete with illustrations by the amazing Robin E. Mørk (see above).

BOTTOM LINE: Get on now—you are the perfect height to ride this ride.

Seriously, those incentives.
