The New Double Room - Back Again and Loaded

Chief Editor: Mark Tursi
Notable Feature: Walt Whitman Published by DR

Once again, after a bit of a hiatus, we are pleased to present Double Room Issue #9. I remain committed to publishing great prose poetry, short fiction, reviews, art work, interviews chapbooks and more, even if on a bit of an inconsistent and irregular basis. We appreciate the support and interest of our many readers and will continue to publish issues when possible. This current issue is guest edited by Tan Lin. Tan Lin is the author of numerous works of poetry, fiction, and, perhaps most significantly, work that dismantles or 'explodes' genre categories. ... more

Provocative Sol Items
From the WDS archives of Del Sol Review, the ho-ho Jan Pehechan Ho lives again. Who are they? What do they want from planet Earth? Gina and a son who? Test your dates with this film.

WDS profusely thanks reviewer Levi Asher for saying what we've all wanted to say for years, namely, that the Vollmann emperor is naked to the point of nausea:

"I have tried hard, so very hard, to appreciate Vollmann, a wildly original postmodernist obsessed with history and human aggression who is considered a great intellect by several people I respect. I've eagerly bought his thick, intimidating books, and I have put in solid time trying to read them. I will not try anymore.

William Vollmann is, in my opinion, the David Blaine of literature. It's all an endurance act. Can a skinny kid with pimples and glasses really write a seven volume chronicle of the settlement of North America, follow it with a 3,300 page history of human violence and then toss out an 800 page rumination on the Eastern Front in World War II? Yes, he can. But if you take the "wow" factor away from William Vollmann, does his work stand up?" Thank you, Levi! OMG, thank you!

Past blast into the Foghorn cosmos and watch him get abused by a psycho-chick. Web del Sol's new mascot says howdy to all his fanz. Doo Dah, Doo dah. "I say, I say, WDS gives me the fantods, I do declare!"
