How good is Josh Bazell's debut novel, Beat the Reaper?

Last year I took my girlfriend to see Equus. During intermission, I pulled the book out of my bag to see how much I could read before the show started again. That's the measure of a great book - one where you spend your day looking for moments to get in a few more pages.

Look At The Birdie

"Look At The Birdie" by Kurt Vonnegut
Joshua Chaplinsky
Vonnegut haunts us from the grave with another posthumous collection of effortless short fiction.

His second posthumous collection of prehumous stories, Look At The Birdie focuses on the unpublished early work of Vonnegut's formative years. Phantonymns aside, the stories that make up Birdie share a specific point in time. Whereas the stories in his previous collection, Armageddon in Retrospect, shared the themes of war and peace, the stories that make up Birdie paint a broad picture of post World War II America by nature of when they were written.

The Paris Review Interviews

'The Paris Review Interviews' edited by Philip Gourevitch
Phil Jourdan
Essential advice for writers, from the literary greats.

From the 1950s onwards, The Paris Review contributors have engaged in wonderful conversations with some of the world’s greatest authors: Faulkner, Gardner, Hemingway, Mailer, Joyce Carol Oates… These interviews may be, as Dave Eggers once claimed, “the closest thing to an MFA that you can get while sitting alone on your couch.” Hyperbolic? Perhaps, but the sentiment is genuine.

Fight Club T-Shirts Are Finally Here!

Pre-Order your 'Fight Club' T-shirt today!

For years we've been offering Tshirts on this website for all of Chuck Palahniuk's books.  You have demanded them and we have delivered.  But strangely, the one shirt we never made was a Fight Club shirt.

Well, that all changes today.  In honor of the 10 year anniversary of the movie Fight Club, as well as the 10 year anniversary of (yes, it's been that long!), we are finally offering you the shirts you've been wanting for years!  But this time we took things up a notch.  We wanted this shirt to look different than the rest.  We wanted it to not just feel like a 'Fight Club' movie shirt, but also channel the book.  So we wanted a design that was balanced.  Something hot.  Something you'd wear out and not feel like too much of a fanboy.  ;)

'Cover' by Jack Ketchum
Dennis Widmyer
The cost of war...

When once asked who he thought the scariest guy in America was, Stephen King replied, "Probably Jack Ketchum." I remember reading that quote and thinking that Ketchum had to be a serial killer, or some terrible politician or criminal that I had never heard of. When I later found out he was an author, I was impressed to say the least. I grew up on the stories of Stephen King, so an endorsement like that holds a lot of weight for me. I'm a big horror movie hound, though I don't typically read a lot of horror novels.

Chuck Reviews The June Workshop Finalists!

Photo by Harley SoltesAfter a slight intermission, we return to you with perhaps the greatest feature we have ever offered on our website in 10 solid years of content.  Chuck Palahniuk reads and reviews your stories!  Hopefully by now you know the drill, but just in case you don't, lemme recap you!

Starting in February of 2009, we began a screening process, whereby about 17 original stories from our Writers' Workshop get nominated and then read by judges every month.  The top 6 stories are then sent off to Chuck Palahniuk who reads, reviews and feedbacks them.  The selected finalists are then posted here, along with Chuck's in-depth notes.  It is Chuck's aim at the end of the year to choose the best stories and publish them in an anthology which he will write the Intro for. 

As we are on a three month turnaround, below you will find the 6 stories that Chuck reviewed for June 09.  Premium Members can click each story to not only read it, but also see Chuck's feedback.

The Great-God Bird of Arkansas - Wil D. Alton

Invisible Graffiti - Adam Skorupskas

Bike - BH Ebert

Logan Outbreak - J. R. Strohmeyer

The Line Forms On the Right - Amanda Gowin

The Soldier - Phil Jourdan

A big congrats to all the finalists.  Chuck seemed to really enjoy every story we sent in June.

For all of you that would like to jumpstart your writing career, quit procrastinating and,

For everyone else, remember, don't miss out,
