The B.I. Project - Part 2

The 4th, 5th and 6th Brief Interviews have now been added to the Brief Interviews Project page. The response to the first three has been fantastic! I have temporarily removed the mp3 link block as a couple of you were still having issues. 

The B.I. Project - Part 1

Back in 2003 members of wallace-l who received a copy of 'The David Foster Wallace Reader' found a special gift in the package. Over the next few weeks The Howling Fantods is making that gift available to everyone.

No New Thomas Demand Exhibition Story

Contrary to what I reported here back in January (based on this now changed information here ), the "Thomas Demand: L’Esprit d’Escalier" exhibition publication will not have a newly commissioned David Foster Wallace story. It will have one that was previously published in Girl With Curious Hair . Further details here. {comment}

Looks like the move was silky smooth. I've enabled sign-ups and logins so commenting should work too. Let me know if there are any problems. {comment}

Website Downtime

At some stage during this week there will be some downtime as my webhost moves all the content to a newer and faster server. I've been warned there may be some data loss, which might mean some of the newer members lose their details. I'm backing things up at this end, and until we are up on the new server locking down new memberships.
If all goes to plan all you'll notice is that the site becomes unavailable for a few hours/days. The web address and everything else should stay the same. 

New Infinite Jest Review: Powell's Books

An interesting review of Infinite Jest by Stephen Burn (author of Infinite Jest : A reader's guide) that considers some of the impact and big picture issues the novel has had. Read it over at Powell's Books.
