AUTUMN SPECIAL ISSUE


That's it, folks! It is finally here. 

My original plan for BNW was simple. Make 9 issues with all-new authors and then churn out Issue 10 with every single contributor. Hundred or so contributors. After seeing the nice flow and steady growth of the magazine i thought it would be a good idea to make 10 issues with all-new contributors and then an ALL-STAR SPECIAL. Then i thought that putting out over a hundred posts in a single day will be a very long day. With elements of overkill. 

Around the same time interaction with disgruntled, scorned authors who didn't make the cut to the mag became tiring and i thought i need to slow things down a little. And then i've lost my job and found another one and the workload wasn't allowing me to fully concentrate on Brave New Word - so i decided to call it quits. And then i've lost that job and things got back to normal. Except for disgruntled authors - who were still writing their crap on a weekly basis. What is wrong with them? Anyway. Then i've found another job and it was very tiring and time consuming - i had no time to finish this issue. I even thought of putting a cheat easy issue first to buy some time. But now this bad job is gone too and i'm free to waste my time as i see fit. 

Without further due - i present to you BRAVE NEW WORD AUTUMN SPECIAL

ISSUE 8


ISSUE #8

Editors note: 

This issue is designed after 2001 trip sequence. 

"Sometimes you just can't get rid of the bomb!" Remember when the last time i've said that Issue 7 is "last BNW for foreseeable future"? I was wrong! The very reason i decided to abandon this journal just vanished a bit later (in cosmic terms - it was "moments later") and i was left utterly perplexed. I feel stupid about that and I'm very sorry for causing needless fuss.

So - what happened? From August to some part of September i had a job at NGO and it was "so-so la-la" but well-paid and fitting my skills (writing stuff, etc.). I thought i could do it. But there were two problems. First - lack of any sort of task management. Everything was chaotic and i had no idea what is going on most of the time. The entire communication was based on Facebook Messenger which is counterproductive to say the least and there was no real system of tracking progress or keeping schedule intact. No Trello or Slack. But you can get behind the chaos if you want to. What you can't get behind is toxic environment. And boy, it was TOXIC. It was Chornobyl level of toxicity. Here's a thing - i can adapt to the collective. But it takes two for a tango and when the other side is not willing to embrace newbie - there is nothing to be done. After a while i was rejected and isolated simply because i wasn't one of them. That NGO-crowd were lawyers, graduates, PR-managers - all interested in one thing - politics and politics only. And they had no idea about anything. Anything!! They live in a parallel dimension. So when the writer comes to write stuff for them - their reaction was as if it full-on alien invasion. It seems like they don't really understand that some people may be different from them. And so they acted hostile and plain mean. It was disgusting. I was undermined at every point and had no chance to show what i'm capable of. That made very sad but i was willing to go on - because i'm not the one gives up. But they decided otherwise - and so I was out. I think it was a good thing after all - i nearly had a nervous breakdown because of the growing tensions (fun, fun, fun).

Now it's over - i'm back in the saddle and ready to rumble!

This issue is far more visual than the previous. The line-up is murderers row of talent of all walks. Whole lotta collage stuff in different styles from Guido Utermark and David Chirot, visual poetry from the Ruud Janssen and Mick Boyle. But there are also some texts - Miekal And's Also Spake Moby Dick is getting well-deserved spotlight. Probably the best piece of poetry ever posted on BNW. There are also very curious stuff from Russell Jaffe and Steve Timm. There's even a reunion of M58 crew - Andrew Taylor and Jez Noond! And there's stuff from legendary Valerij Scherstyanoi. Overall - i'm very proud of this issue. Probably the strongest of the bunch so far.

And as a teaser of sorts i want to mention one project that will involve whole lotta visual poetry. I hope it will go as planned.
