Book + Beer: Jac Jemc and Magic Hat Wacko

Monday, April 25th, 2011

Jac Jemc has a rejection blog, though it often includes acceptances.

Jac Jemc’s These Strangers She’d Invited In arrives at my door with fragments of maps and playing cards and a GREYING GHOST pin and a belly band. The paper is of very high quality. The front matter includes some drawings of a nautical bent, possibly mid-19th century in feel, several fish and then several paragraphs—possibly found text—explaining the economic superiority of trawl fishing (thank you, dear Britain, for inventing the otter board). I feel an aesthetic immersion here, to wet my toes, to enter the water, to prepare myself for the feelings of shift or chill or floating or to hold breath. To be caught? The cover is the color of the Bering Strait (known to natives as Imakpik). Hand pressed love like vodka trains. Siberia is 1/12th of the entire earth. Belly bands are generally cool.

Magic Hat Wacko claims to be the liquid song of summer but it is damn well not the liquid song of summer.

It is an English Ale (otter boards!) with Appolo hops, pale malts, and a gravity of 11.00 Plato.

Book-o-the-Day: A Heaven Gone by Jac Jemc

Wednesday, December 30th, 2009

Jac Jemc all micro-fiction/poem (ah, genre, ala Charles Baxter: “…they are between poetry and fiction, the story and the sketch, prophecy and reminiscence, the personal and the crowd.”). Short form. Something has happened, much of it off the page, much of it white space, white blizzard whirling around tight words. Residue. Stumble. Off the page one serious advantage of microfiction. Some see space. Some use the space (example Joseph Young, example Chelsea Martin). Example Jac Jemc.

Jac Jemc has a razor name and wears killer boots while out in Chicago.

Jac Jemc spits on rejection, polishes it up, tacks its forehead to this wall with a knife.

Jac Jemc opening page:

“Windows of humor roll down low & whistle

At our glorious legs & eyeball the stiff &

Enthronging death of accidents.

The humpbacked light of the moon is the

Funnel cloud of direction, sawn off & mighty.
