New York Tyrant will eat your eyes

New York Tyrant launched their new website this week. It is a very tasteful flash affair jam packed with insane shit and new info, including the aforementioned new issue with the greatest cover ever, which is as such:

Yes, that is Chris March from Project Runway in a bear suit. Fuck yeah.

The line up on the new issue is kind of a feat in and of itself I think: Alex Balk, Eugene Marten, Jason Schwartz, Eva Talmadge, Gordon Lish, Atticus Lish, Sam Michel, Brad Gayman, John Haskell, Cooper Renner, Michael Scott Ryan, Oscar Williams, Ryan Call, Blake Butler, Julian Zadorozny, Ronald Hobbs, M. Thomas Gammarino, Conor Madigan, R.E. Bowse, Justin Taylor, Julian Kudritzki, Pasquino, Greg Mulcahy, M Sarki, S.G. Miller, Joshua Furst, David Nutt, Sarah Manguso, Patrick Leonard, Jeffrey Lewis, Thomas a Kempis, Jody Barton.

You can now order the issue from the site, which I suggest you do soon, as the last two have sold out before they could really even make it on the web.

Also unveiled in the site is the forthcoming Tyrant Press, which will feature titles from Eugene Marten, Michael Kimball, and Brian Evenson. Already a legend and they haven’t published the first book yet.

In addition to all this, submissions have reopened, so all of ya’ll who submit, should get on it. And buy. Buy the issues, esp. if you never have. Don’t be the guy sending blindly to anyone who will read your electronically.

      Did they radically change their submissions policy? I sent them something a while back and I thought they said simultaneous submissions were acceptable. I also submitted electronically. In July. Huh.

      subs policy from site:

      Submissions Now Open!

      Simultaneous submissions are not allowed. New translations are. The Tyrant asks that authors refrain from submitting more than one story at a time. We do not accept unsolicited book-length submissions at the Tyrant. However, if you have something you would like for us to consider, please send a self-contained excerpt or story and we will contact you if interested.

      To submit by mail, please send clearly typed manuscripts, double-spaced in the 12pt  font of your choice on 8″ x 11″ white paper, one side only. The first page must contain the following: name, address, e-mail address, and phone number. Enclose a SASE or we cannot guarantee that your work will elicit a response; we can, however, guarantee that it will not be returned. Regardless of SASE, manuscripts will not be returned unless specifically requested, with the correct postage included. We do not accept submissions that require any type of signature on delivery. Due to the high number of submissions we receive, we cannot guarantee a response.  We try to get back to  
      everyone, but you would be surprised to discover how many of you there are. If you do not hear from us within three months time of submitting, you may want to inquire about the status of your story. But if you kind of knew it wasn’t that good to begin with, please be honest with yourself (and easy on us) and consider the piece rejected. Regular mail submissions, THE ONLY KIND WE ACCEPT, should be sent to:

      New York Tyrant 676A Ninth Avenue, #153 New York, NY 10036

      If you would like to send a piece electronically, please first inquire at submissions@nytyrant.com with your name and the BEST THREE SENTENCES from your piece.  You will then be contacted about whether we would like to see more.  Thank you for agreeing with our asshole regulations.

      Yes, it’s a nice journal, but for me, $15 + $7 shipping = go to hell NYTyrant.

      That is a paypal error. It should only be $3 shipping and handling. Will be fixed in a minute.

      So Fuck You, KEY-HOLE

      Gian, you can if you want.

      I think $18 is too much too (and yes I do think NYT is way better than Keyhole but not $8 better–well, maybe I do)…but I’m going to have to ask for a subscription for christmas because it’s the only way I can justify the expense.

      I know, it’s expensive and it sucks that things cost money and everything. But we have expenses. Unless we charge this much, we won’t have money to make anymore. The production of our books costs quite a bit. I must need lessons in production. There is a lot of content in there though. I guess you’ll never know until you see one, so I’ll send you a free one and then you can decide.

      I’ve got a copy, so no worries.

      I think it’s worth $15 and even $18, but I’m poor so that changes the perspective.

      my opinion might be tainted publicly since i am in the new issue, but i would pay $18 or however much for each of the earlier issues i have. and they keep getting better each issue. so, to me its worth it. but again just me

      nah, it’s not tainted. I’ve had a bad day and have been drinking and I have felt like bashing something all day. plus shipping always pisses me off no matter who it is.

      I mean, really, some stories are workth $18 at least.

      I’ve got the smoking one and it’s very nice and that’s old.

      what the fuck? of course NYT is worth $18. people need to stop bullshitting. lit mags come out quarterly, sometimes annually, sometimes bi-annually. we spend more on potato chips. stop eating so many damn chips.

      Not that I’m impressed a lot, but this is a lot more than I expected when I found a link on Furl telling that the info here is quite decent. Thanks.
      p.s. Year One is already on the Internet and you can watch it for free.
