Poetry. "What do Hugh MacDiarmid, Donkey Kong and the algorithms of have to do with each other? Was Wordsworth all wrong, and is the democratization of language to be found in the work of a whiz kid's Commodore 64? Is it healthy to read the letters of a supermarket receipt for its lyrical soul? What is a `digital poetics' and where can I get one? Does it hurt? Can I still write `normal' poems afterwards?"--from FASHIONABLE NOISE. Brian Kim Stefans is also the author of FREE SPACE COMIX, GULF, and ANGRY PENGUINS, all carried by SPD.
