Boudinot! An Appreciation by Aaron Burch | HTMLGIANT

And thus was Hobart #4 created… He introduced me to Laird Hunt and J Robert Lennon and Ray Vukcevich. The issue opens and closes with pieces by Aimee Bender that were inspired by a painting by Marcel Dzama featured on the cover. There’s one of (I think?) Tao Lin’s first stories in print. There’s Stephen Elliott and Robert Lopez and Rick Moody…

I wrote a little appreciation of Ryan Boudinot that turned into a kind of history of Hobart/online lit journals and personal reflection, or something.

The June issue the online issue Everyday Genius is in print. We super recommend you pick up a copy, and not just because I have a story in it (previewed on the site today) or because we get a nice nod in Adam’s note:

This is the first time we’ve gone to print, though. The decision was mostly inspired by Hobart's Lucky 13 issue. It’s so beautiful, the writing so well mixed. I wanted to give it a try. 

(blush)
Really, like just about everything EG/PG/Adam Robinson-related, it’s great. (via Everyday Genius)

It’s been a decade, give or take. I went looking into the Hobart archives and the oldest story is from March 2002. Over ten years! 
In the coming days and weeks we have more of these “from the vault” pieces where we want to highlight some of our favorite stories from the archives and give them a bit of a second life; a series of short, “craft-based” interviews focused onthings other than fiction, like skateboarding and thrift stores; a few food & drink pieces, including a monthly bourbon review; interviews with “non-readers”; movie reviews; lots of ideas we’ll probably come up with later; and even poetry(!!).
For this, our launch, a handful of us editors looked back at some of our favorites from the Hobart archives:
Elizabeth Ellen looks back at Tao Lin’s “The Novelist” from Aug./Sept. ‘04
Matthew Simmons looks back at Amy Minton’s “Overhanded” from May ‘07
Jac Jemc looks back at Spencer Dew’s “The Exit Colony” from October ‘04
Jensen Beach looks back at Glen Pourciau’s “Belly” from October ‘08
Aaron Burch looks back at two Aaron Gwyn shorts from early ‘02
Thanks. We hope you like.

We’ve been on tour together, renting a van with five other writers and making a road trip of it, selling books for gas money. For writers who dream of a Champagne toast over a hefty book advance, the image of Dodson and Aaron Burch of Hobart magazine pouring whiskey into soda bottles might alarm, but to us, BYOW (bring your own whiskey) fit right in with the ragtag reality of our budget.

Thanks, all, for the advice, re: another/new/multiple tumblrs. I decided it probably best to set up a separate account, input my other email, and then remembered that that was actually my entryway into toying with tumblr in the first place and this Hobart one was second. Anyway, I deleted all the old ODB and Sonics retumbls and am gonna mostly keep track of my writing stuff over there. Follow?
aaronburch:

Decided to start my own tumblr, mostly to for once have somewhere that I keep track of my own writing and the stuff I’m working on, other than everything falling under the Hobart umbrella. Right now, I’m trying to wrap up and tighten a collection that I’m calling PERFECT, so thought I’d likely be retumbling some “perfect” quotes, and this Christopher Newgent calligraphy seemed a good place to start.

a couple more re-blogs and then I’ll probably more completely let my new personal tumblr and this Hobart one be separate but, for now… I have a story on whiskeypaper today. thanks.
aaronburch:

A couple months or so ago, amongst my frequent reblogging on the Hobart tumblr of any antlers I see come across my dashboard, I added a caption to one that read, “I want to write a book that gets published and has antlers on the cover, the end.” and whiskeypaper retumbled it and added, “EVERYTHING WAS ANTLERS & NOTHING HURT,” which I retumbled again, adding, “added to to-do list: write story called ‘Everything Was Antlers and Nothing Hurt’” and then a couple days later I had my class do an in-class writing exercise, during which I wrote a little story about antlers, and I called it “Everything Was Antlers and Nothing Hurt” and sent it to Leesa and she accepted it, and was even kind enough to use an image of antlers for section breaks, and now it’s on the site and ain’t it pretty?

New Amurican Gospels: "Any Deadly Thing" by Roy Kesey
Vol. 10, No. 2

EDITOR’S NOTE


image

When Steve Gillis and I formed Dzanc Books and put out an open call for submissions, we also thought about the many literary journals that we loved and greatly respected. We asked around a dozen editors of those journals if they knew any authors who were shopping books and running into the long-standing “editors love it, marketers aren’t sure how to sell it” problem. Aaron Burch of Hobart suggested Roy Kesey. Steve and I had recently read a few of his stories and been struck by the range; it seemed he used a different form for each one.

The first title Dzanc published, in October 2007, was Roy Kesey’s All Over, an amazing collection of 19 stories that finds Roy trying many different voices and styles.
