Radical compressions and striking explosions. Brian Christian proposes a radical theory of art as information, and Senior Editor Bill Pierce riffs out further connections, while artist Aldwyth (as elucidated by fellow-artist Rosamond Purcell) offers uncannily apt illustration. Lovers’ beds abound—in fiction by Gary Amdahl, Michael Mejia, and Margo Berdeshevsky—and poets, including Adam Day, Garrett Keizer, Eva Hooker, and Deborah Pease, find what’s fresh and disturbing in the nothing new that is under the sun.

In this issue is Valerie Vogrin’s story “things we’ll need for the coming difficulties,” winner of a Pushcart Prize and reprinted in the 2011 anthology; along with Bret Anthony Johnston’s “Caiman” reprinted in New Stories from the South: The Year’s Best 2010; and Lee Upton’s “Drunk at a Party,” chosen for The Best American Poetry 2011.
