Fashion Designer Paul Smith Works on Granta Cover

Granta magazine worked with fashion designer Paul Smith to create the cover for its upcoming issue, Granta 119.

Dedicated to the theme of “Britain,” the issue will be released in the U.K. on May 10th and in the U.S. on May 17th.  Contributing writers include Adam Foulds, Mark Haddon, Robert Macfarlane and Rachel Seiffert.

In the release, Granta artistic director Michael Salu explained the cover: “Britain’s oldest literary magazine creating an issue on ‘home’ needed a package of distinction. Why not ask a revered British designer to collaborate on creating the cover for ‘Britain?’ We worked with Sir Paul Smith and his team to create an image that we feel is beautiful yet disquieting and saturated with generations of British identity and understanding.”

Ann Van­der­Meer & Jeff Van­der­Meer Launch ‘Weird Fiction Review’

Authors Ann Van­der­Meer and Jeff Van­der­Meer just opened Weird Fiction Review, an online journal dedicated to “an ongo­ing explo­ration into all facets of the weird, in all of its many forms.” In August, Ann VanderMeer and her staff were cut at Weird Tales.

Weird Fiction Review launched with a Neil Gaiman interview about weird fiction, an episode of the “Reading The Weird” webcomic by Leah Thomas, a translation of Thomas Owen‘s “Kavar the Rat,” and The art of New Orleans gallery by artist Myrtle Von Damitz III. While they don’t have the same editors, the journal will maintain “a sym­bi­otic rela­tion­ship” with S.T. Joshi’s print jour­nal, The Weird Fic­tion Review.

Here’s more about the site: “[It has] a kind of non-denominational approach that appre­ci­ates Love­craft but also Kafka, Angela Carter and Clark Ash­ton Smith, Shirley Jack­son and Fritz Leiber — along with the next gen­er­a­tion of weird writ­ers and inter­na­tional weird. The empha­sis will be on non­fic­tion on writ­ers and par­tic­u­lar books, but we will also run fea­tures on weird art, music, and film, as well as occa­sional fiction. Angela Slat­ter cur­rently serves as our man­ag­ing edi­tor, Luis Rodrigues cre­ated the site, and Larry Nolen and Paul Smith will be among the reg­u­lar colum­nists.”
