Well, hello there. Welcome to the first batch of Issue Seven Action Photos. This picture was taken by metallic wonder G. Nissen, who will soon be boasting an SPR story on his back, one that would fit quite perfectly among those hanging there on the clothesline, as a matter of fact.
Following that, we have several Simon-strolling-across-campus shots that seem to have become our stock-in-trade, seeing as it’s what I do the most of.
On Sunday, “On My Spaceship” is going to see some live music (two bands featured on last week’s installment of “Centerpiece,” as a matter of fact). There will be photos.
And next week, Safety Pin Review goes to New York: Issue Eight will be worn around NYC by Operative (and author) Brian Hurley.
In an interaction that must be credited entirely to online social media, I tweeted Margaret Atwood last night (because she rocks my socks), something about “wearable fiction” and how she should submit a story to us, and then this morning, she retweeted my post to her approximately 270K followers. Since then, website traffic hit its highest daily sum since the debut issue featuring xTx dropped back in September. Yowza! With bated breath, we now await stories from Sherman Alexie and Margaret Atwood both. Sights high. Maybe this will pressure them.
And, thanks to a generous donation from one of our contributors, the Safety Pin Review is now proudly hosted at safetypinreview.com. We certainly do appreciate it. Mad props.
