Later this year, Featherproof is releasing Blake Butler’s Scorch Atlas, a book about which I’ve already rambled a bit. And, as it turns out, they’re also seeking remixes of one story for a digital collection to be released concurrently with Scorch Atlas.
We really hope you’ll join us in killing and reviving Blake’s fiction. It’s going to be fun.
Butler has more on it on his blog. Given that Chris Eaton’s The Grammar Architect and Rick Moody‘s “The Double Zero” (among others) have brought the concept of the cover version into fiction, it’s nice to see the remix collection doing the same. And I eagerly await seeing how the mixtape translates into literary terms.
[Brooklynites may also note that Butler is taking part in a reading at Greenpoint's Word Books on Thursday.]
