The tenth issue of MungBeing Magazine has been plucked from the ether
and made manifest in a feat of literary and artistic alchemy.http://www.mungbeing.com
This bi-month we cast light upon shadows and overturn rocks in our hunt
to root out the Obscure.
Enigmatic musician Gary Wilson waxes about his musical childhood and
meeting John Cage. Christopher P. Reilly and Darron Laessig bring us a
"Xenofolie A Deux" in comic form. Geneticist Andrew Hessel discusses
life engineering and hacking the genome.
And we are happy to introduce two new ongoing items; a serialized
novella, Ian Donnell Arbuckle's "Last Name", and a column called
"Revolting Literature", the first of which critiques the recent writings
of Kristopher Young and Gina Ranalli. Both are welcome additions to our
diverse and eclectic blend of diversions and eclections.
Other writings unearthed include
* "A brief reflection over the Outsider as an archetypical artist and
humanitarian hero" by SJ Chambers
* "Chocolate Starfish Oracle" by Heidi Morgan
* "Musing Upon The Food For Thought" by Milos Vujasinovic
* "Death of an Engineer" by John Helmer
Anomalous audio oddities emanate forth from Dave Carpenter, bibble (with
Spacemummy), and Erin Emerson. There's a classic track from the
legendary Sockeye in there to boot.
Our hauntingly beautiful cover graphic was created by Erin Emerson. She
joins raw artist Jesse Reno, James Whitman and Iraqi surrealist Muayad
Muhsin as our newest visual artists.
Jim Bumgardner delivers THREE pages of puzzles, including the new
"Jiguko" variety. And, as a special thank you to readers of MungBeing,
we are including a FREE GIFT with every issue.
Plus all the comics, witticisms, and insights that you've come to expect
from the internet's most intriguing bimonthly magazine. All this and
Rachel Haywire, too!
MungBeing is an online bimonthly magazine published under a Creative
Commons license, and we dig the whole theory behind that, man.
Thanks for catching a glimpse of MungBeing and reading it,
