Lit mag on its way.

Finished the first book I was to review for Gutter, and have sketched out a few notes towards it. This was the one by the respected Scottish writer that I was very much looking forward to reading, and it didn’t disappoint. Started the other book I was to review though, and, so far, it  could well be the worst thing I’ve ever read in my life. Truly appalling. Should make for an entertainingly balanced piece …

As my last, fairly cryptic post should have made obvious, me and Martin are now pretty much set with our journal. We have a title, “Free State” (inspired by the great VS Naipaul), and a website. If anyone wants to sign up to receive it (it’s free), please do so. If you want to submit anything, follow the instructions on the site. We’re going to be open to short fiction and novel extracts, essays (on more or less any subject we like), reportage, photography, artwork etc etc etc. Perhaps poetry as well (I don’t want to encourage it though – there’s a lot of bad poetry out there). We’re hoping to have the first issue out by March, perhaps earlier. More to follow.
