Edition Five of Black Clock is out, and despite the journal being relatively new, it’s commanding some well-known voices (David Foster Wallace, Jonathan Lethem, Rick Moody, Aimee Bender). The editor and creator of the journal, Steve Erickson, talked at the LA Times book fair in a panel on LA Fiction (hosted by Janet Fitch), and now Black Clock is now targetting Los Angeles fiction. This focus on LA fiction is great for LA writers, because guess what? Not all the writers in So Cal use FinalDraft.
Anyways, here’s the event: Black Clock Reading – at Skylight Books in Silver Lake. June 22, a Thursday, at 7:30 pm. LA Times Post
And, if you haven’t read Steve Erickson’s latest and greatest – Our Estatic Days – do so now at Powell’s Books.
