New issue of Prayers for Children + news

The third and final issue of Prayers for Children (an online art zine I co-edit) is now up over here. Our swan song is a love letter to music and how it inspires; this issue features the genius of Jack X. Taylor, Leon Baham, Cleonette Harris, Matthew Gallaway (author of the excellent The Metropolis Case), Mindtroll (a band featuring BoL’s own Niina Pollari), Ula Zuhra, Christine Vi-Van Nguyen, Susanna Troxler, Meghan Lamb, B.C. Edwards, Lustcats of the Gutters, Andrew Bell, Rohin Guha, Jef Barbara, Erik Peterson, Samuelroy, Inbred Hybrid Collective, Demian Dine’Yazhi’, Thomas Boettner, and Matt Momchilov, plus interviews with SSION’s Cody Critchole and Bow Wow Wow’s Annabella Lwin.

Laura Beth Davis wrote a great post on chapbooks over at the ModCloth blog which features Birds of Lace, Dancing Girl Press and Blood Pudding Press. You can find it here. We’re honored to be featured alongside two other presses that we love!

This Thurs. in NYC you can (and should!) go to the Sweet! Actors Reading Writers Series. This event will feature a reading of Jason Helm’s Fetish, and early copies of the chapbook will be available from the author. More information on the event can be found here.

Speaking of Fetish, here are a few examples of the collaged covers for the CD of Helm reading the story, which is being sent out with pre-orders:
