The new Lifted Brow is out – t’is #5. The CRISABOE issue: What predictive text thinks you’re typing if you type “Brisbane”. Hometown readers, this is the poorly-thought-through affair to your One Book Many Brisbanes, your student magazines, and a national book culture which rarely gets the sunshine state at all. What do four-minute shower restrictions mean for a man who sweats grease? (That one’s fiction.) Is it possible to visit all thirty-two council libraries in a day? (That one’s not.) CRISABOE is a recurring reason to make good art from and about Brisrael City.
My short story ‘Words’ appears therein, but more importantly, Rob Shearman’s Pang is in it and Tom Guerney’s epic spec-fic poem Valcapella and Dwinn is on a CD, cunningly adhered inside the front cover. Other fiction from Caren Beilin, Tony Birch, n a bourke, Blake Butler, Chris Currie, Laura E. Goodin, Bryce Wolfgang Joiner, Andrew Kertesz, Krissy Kneen, Jennifer L. Knox, Matthew Lanzdorf, Darlin’ Neal, Robert Shearman, Antonia Strakosch, Justin Taylor, Scarlett Thomas, and Joe Wenderoth. And there is other stuff.
