Criticism of criticism… Fruitless Recursion is go!

Fruitless RecursionHere’s a heads-up for Futurismic regulars who don’t just like reading genre fiction, but who also like reading writing about genre fiction, and who would be interested in reading writing written about writing about genre fiction*…

Blasphemous Geometries columnist Jonathan McCalmont has just committed multiple counts of meta-criticism by posting the first full issue of Fruitless Recursion. Here’s the list of articles for you to get your teeth into:

  • Alvaro Zinos-Amaro’s review of Barry N. Malzberg’s Breakfast in the Ruins.
  • Martin Lewis’ review of Roz Kavenay’s From Alien to the Matrix.
  • Paul Kincaid’s review of David Hajdu’s The Ten Cent Plague.
  • Jonathan McCalmont’s field report on Paul Kincaid interviewing Christopher Priest.

Something for everyone, then. Aspiring meta-critics, take note – Fruitless Recursion is a paying market for critical works, so get writing!
