Report from the field: Ben Brown

posted by Jason Kottke   Sep 04, 2002

Kottke.org roving reporter Ben Brown checked in earlier this week with the following news:

Neal Pollack has a weblog. Mr. Pollack is probably most well known as the author of The Neal Pollack Anthology of American Literature, which, depending on who you talk to, is either pretty good or not so good. I don’t know because I haven’t read it (Neal, I’ll read your book when you read mine).

So New Media has released the 3rd issue of Words! Words! Words! Ben claims that W!^3.3 is the first literary magazine with a naked centerfold. What about Penthouse Letters? And I’m almost sure I saw Pamela Lee straddling a mechanical bull in the last issue of The Paris Review. But anyway, Words! Words! Words!, good writing, illustrations by that Exploding Dog guy, naked chick.
