Babbage’s Disease
—by Edwin Birch
babbages disease web photo
Minutes in the research and years in the writing, this historically-questionable anti-biographical novel about the demise of the inventor of the first mechanical computer (and his imaginary friend Jiffy) is destined for immortal micro-glory in the annals of Post-Neo nonsense.

“After what seemed like days of incessant hacking, Babbage finally felt something stir in the back of his throat. It felt like a glob of phlegm, only bigger. Much bigger. And firmer. And hairier. And… flatter? Each little cough brought the puzzling object further up his windpipe. His naturally crimson complexion turned plum-purple with the effort of dislodging whatever was lurking deep in his neck. At long last, with one final triumphant bellowing heave, the thing emerged.

It was small, white and furry. It had a big, wide head, with two long, pointy ears, tiny black eyes and a little X for a nose. It was also completely two-dimensional. It sat on Babbage’s lap, casually wiped away the vile coating of mucus that clung to its furry surface, stared at him with its blank, soulless eyes and sniffed.

“Hallo,” it said, in a vaguely Dutch accent.

“Hello,” replied Babbage, too flabbergasted to ignore it.

“My name is Jiffy,” said the little creature. Its simple features disturbed Babbage. It looked as though it had been drawn by a child. A generous person might have suggested it was a rabbit. It didn’t have a mouth.”

The Horse-Killer: Chapter One.
—by Olchar E. Lindsann

horse-killer 1 cover colour

—-cover by bela b. Grimm & Olchar Lindsann

Lindsann’s serial Gothic (anti-)Novel is set in an absurdist avant-garde utopia out of joint with time & space, peopled by an all-star cast of Dadas, Neoists, Patahysicians, Activists, Symbolists, Mail Artists, Surrealists, Heretics, Fluxists, Fictional Characters, Romanticists, Post-NeoAbsurdists, Lovecraftian Gods, Situationists, and everything in-between. Read the first installment while it’s fresh!

”      Burning with dada rage, O’Neddy leapt savagely to the attack: The Antagonists had already exchanged several passes before Maciunas, who at that fortnight had more nonsense than either of them, could spit himself between their razor-sharp intellects.
‘Hold! Hold! Fatagaga!’ He exclaimed; ‘Remember the consequences of shedding mercurial dew on shamanically consecrated ground!’
The Philistine immediately dropped his Physic-Stick. ‘Fatagaga?’ He cried; ‘Great Cthulu, is it possible! O’Neddy, have you quite forgotten Daniel Kharms?’
O’Neddy’s astonishment increased with dada every succeeding fortnight. Daniel Kharms advanced towards him, but with a piss of dada suspicion He drew back his brain-pan, which the Other was preparing to take. “

Poems by Lindsann in conversation with the work of avant-writers John M. Bennett, Jim Leftwich, and Ivan Argüelles (plus some others)–hacking up, integrating, responding or referencing their work. In this celebration of communal language and textual play, every level of linguistic phenomena, from the single mark to the letter, the word, the phrase, the sentence, the statement, are woven in and out of each other to percolate and jar against themselves.

The Iuk Kide
—by Imogene Engine

Iuk kide cover b&wiuk kide color copy w title
—cover by bela b. Grimm

Long-form poem by one of the primary originators of Post-Neo verse.

A storm begins and the electricity happens horizontally-
and I find the book written by the anchoress.
I never understood what it said
until I went to sleep.
The Iuk Kide is a book, a place and a religion.
There was a queen who married into the religion.
She could not break the will of the king,
– but also she could not go into exile.
It is too late-
occurs in some other century
trappings silenced and censored…
a prisoner to the structure.

Ghoul
—by Olchar E. Lindsann

ghoul web photo

“low curl of dented spindlespine
skinbristle pricked in blue or yellowing
jowls dark mouth stuffed in bristlewhine
a cackle cracking through the skin
bespotted blue or yellowing
with eyes eyes darting musclewise
with eyes eyes gazing back at every shift at us
bespotted with our eyes we know
those eyes the voice we know
the eyes we shed clutch tight to hide there
eyes we shed stare strangely hunching
the stalking whistle like a wolf in shape but that
the legs and feet are like to legs and feet
of man
as also
voices speaking canine names of men out of the dark
eyes glinting in the dark from flames
far from fires watched by stars by spots and called we know
and small voices in our folds call out to eyes
blink out from night we know we rise we know
we wait with teeth we look at eyes
rolling on flankcrouches we
recoil”

The Garrick Remedy
by Joseph Bouchardy; trans. Talia Felix.

bouchardy-garrick remedy cover

Though virtually forgotten today, Joseph Bouchardy (1810-1870) was a co-founder of the Bouzingo group, the first self-declared “avant-garde” collective, blending political radicalism, gothic-horror subculture, experimental literature and art, and the transformation of everyday life.

Trained as an engraver, he soon turned to playwriting, and produced many popular melodramas full of deception, disguise, double-crossing, violence, and convoluted, labyrinthine plots often taking place in labyrinthine settings.

This drole tale, written in 1835 on the cusp of Bouchardy’s switch from engraving to drama, is his first work ever translated into English. In  it, Lady Anna has fallen in love at a performance of Romeo and Juliet—but does she love the famous Romantic actor Garrick, or the character of Romeo, or the play itself? In any case, her father has offered £20,000 to anyone who can cure her infatuation.

Bouchardy swings the reader deviously back and forth between wistful sentiment and disillusioned irony. He also sheds some light on Romanticist attitudes toward theatre, history, truth, fiction, and the blending of life and art.

Split mini-chapbook with four poems by Panzeri, one long poem by Lindsann, one poem in collaboration.

“Grace outnumbering the unmentionable years
A soft foreboding of irrational and italicized time

The thought of old things and unsympathetic voices
Remember what she never told you

The disturbance of quiet comes and then she forgets
She forgets her whole life
Her whole life is forgetting”

(Panzeri)

“hush-tensed and tiptoe (almost)
beware and rush untie the tendon (almost)
disburdened and halved (almost)
more skin than white
fleshly stepped from grass and steel
breeze blue-veined against
temples of hair and columns
platonic symmetry platonic
air beating warmth between its edges”

The sphynx is lying on my glove,
your impish crimes lay bar below
the spheres of inky phosphur-crust
that links our lot for ibis times

of Solomon’s tomato lust.

O, lettuce-fly, to grotto suits!
The femur-kings are lost and clothed
in thump and lollipop!

Exquisite Crypt #2
-ed. Warren Fry

The second installment in our series of Exquisite Corpses, Surrealist games, and other collectively-produced artifacts created within the Post-NeoAbsurdist community. This is a single, epic exquisite corpse poem produced between March and December, A.Da. 91 (2007) as a relic of the interaction between three local Post-Neo communities during that period: started during the Anglo-American Post-Neo reunion that Spring as representatives from the American wing traveled through London, Totnes, and Cardiff, then continued upon their return during a stage of intense development in the New Jersey group during a visit there from representatives of Washington Post-Neo. The closest one’s likely to find to a narrative exquisite corpse! (It’s still not that close.) Written by Olchar Lindsann, Warren Fry, David Beris Edwards, Eleanor Francis Waterfowl, Amy Oliver, Rhiannon Chaloner, Bradley Chriss, Megan Blafas, and Tomislav Butkovic.
