Update (2) to Kleft Jaw’s Open Mic @ op. cit. books. Santa Fe

Apparently, op. cit. books has relocated to the Devargas Mall, and while a mall bookstore as a venue is a scary prospect (We hate places like Walden Books,) we’re super excited nonetheless. Also of note is the fact that Elly Finzer (Says the Speck NOW AVAILABLE. Click on the Shop tab for ordering information.) will be unable to attend, but in her stead is KJ #9 Staff Pick, Austin Price. [Werd] up.... read more

an Interview w/ Says the Speck (KJP 2016) author Elly Finzer

By: Gabriel Ricard   Kleft Jaw: Judging by the dedication in Says the Speck, it sounds like Mrs. Hughes was a pretty significant influence on you. Can you elaborate on that possibility a little, as well as the message in the dedication?   Elly Finzer: Mrs. Alice Hughes was my sixth grade teacher at McKinney Elementary School in Hillsboro, Oregon. My family had moved, and I was, once again, the new kid. My... read more

KJ9 Staff Picks (4)

Our last pick for issue #9 comes from Austin Price, and frankly, we think it speaks for itself: Boxing Day I’ve spent every night these last three months writing stories about people trapped in boxes. And I mean in real boxes. I don’t write stories about white-collar jerks so caught up in the rat race that their $20,000-a-month luxury apartments with a view of the Manhattan skyline start to... read more

KJ9 Staff Picks (3)

This week’s pick comes from editor/Clouds of Hungry Dogs author Gabriel Ricard. We’ve all been to the Holiday Season parties, drunken friends, random acts of violence/sex, drugs, retirement plans, the whole nine. But Gabriel was especially smitten with this recollection of such a party from Matthew Reed during the selection process for #9, and while it didn’t make the final cut, it is... read more
