Horse Less Review #2

by Nick Montfort · , 4:25 pm

Horse Less Review #2: Put Out Lights has just been put out. In it you will find fiction, poetry, and perhaps other things by Tyler Carter, Thomas Cook, Phil Cordelli, Maria Filippone, Sandy Florian, Michael Geier, Garth Graeper, Matthew Henriksen, Sean Hoade, Mark Kanak, Kirk Keen, Conan Kelly, Andrew Lux, Andrew Lynes, Clay Matthews, Carolina Maugeri, Jim Maughn, Jerry McGuire, Corey Mesler, Nick Montfort, Bryce Newhart, Scott Pierce, Marc Pietrzykowski, Nate Pritts, Maggie Queeney, Marthe Reed, Kate Schapira, Brandon Shimoda, Brian Kim Stefans, Hugh Steinberg, and Bronwen Tate.

The work published in the new Horse Less includes three new Flash pieces by Brian Kim Stefans which present famous texts one letter at a time, poems that contain the words “they?ve” and “we�d” (an effect I rather like, whether or not it was intended), and my poem “Tichborne’s Lexicon,” which is not new media, but is the outcome of a computational procedure applied to a text.

Unhorse me now.
