Reviews / Endorsements

“Whenever a newspaper succumbs to the clickbait of fake news; whenever a search engine becomes a surrealist troubadour by chance; whenever a witless chatbot strives to rickroll you—these experimental writers, featured here, ensure that you show up for the future of literature on time.” —Christian Bok, author of The Xenotext

“Restive exploration brings together these otherwise beguilingly multifarious works. What does not change is the necessity for change.” —Charles Bernstein, author of Pitch of Poetry
