Product Description

The Coming Envelope is a publication of experimental prose fiction edited and designed by Malcolm Sutton. Every issue features work from five writers. It accommodates hard-to-classify work by those already treading various precipices: uncomfortable here, courting the perverse, typographically observant, exposed to the elements, politically not unaware, falling alongside language.

Writers who have contributed work to Issue 6: Michael Boughn, who gives us three prose poems that lovingly, line by line, turn by turn, disorient and reorient us, kaleidoscoping the reader's eye's lens; Tamara Faith Berger, whose short piece uproots our thinking and sensibilities on sex and pornography and violence; Christopher Higgs, who cuts up, reorders and remixes Pirandello's 6 Characters in Search of an Author to send an author on the task searching for 6 reality-evading, difficult characters; Alan Reed, whose pointillist dialogue of lovers branches into isolate portraits; and Alex Licker, who both sends up and celebrates elevated aphorisms, here dissecting the functions of contemporary fashion (high-waisted pants and shorts, horse-riding wear, patches and badges, racing stripes, and earrings).
