“Besides: to learn to use her mind’s energy against itself, she would have to add new content. Even if it was content that might eventually ease the burden of having content, at this point, she is so overwhelmed with the content she already has, she thinks she cannot take on any new content even if it’s promised that the new content will help her.” — from Evelyn Hampton’s “The End of Content” over at The Collagist; no one does clever and sad at the same time like Evelyn Hampton

Please help us welcome two new fantastic GIANTs to the fold: Evelyn Hampton, editor of Dewclaw and author of We Were Eternal and Gigantic forthcoming from Magic Helicopter Press, and Alissa Nutting, author of Unclean Jobs for Women and Girls, forthcoming from Starcherone Books. Put on your party hats!

Evelyn Hampton posted a behind-the-scenes recounting of her process of learning and moving in the inauguration of her new print journal, Dewclaw, including searching for printers, reading subs, costs, and etc. A great set of observations for those interested in how building a magazine goes. Support her, Preorder the issue!


dewclawDewclaw is a new print journal edited by Evelyn Hampton, and one I am quite excited about. New independently compiled and edited magazines. That’s what we need.

This one indeed includes a few HTML Giant writers including myself, but surely the other fantastic presences exhibited below can allow to forgive this nasty error on the part of Ms. Hampton. :)
