The Oneiromantic Mosaic of Harry Potemkin

Those of us on Team Potemkin apologize for keeping this month's material to ourselves for so long, but, if I may say, the wait will be worth it. The Seventh Dream, "The Funeral of the White Queen" is finally ready, and speaking as the editor, it's one of the strongest installments to date, both textually and visually. This is what you need to read.

However, in the spirit of fair warning, try not to read this one alone in the dark. I'm telling the truth when I say it's the first thing I've read in a long time that actually made me "look over my shoulder." When you get deep enough into this month's nodes, you begin to find some explanation for Harry's psychotic breakdown. If you're at all spooked by the Phil K. Dick-ian loss of identity theme, or if you've read too much Derrida and worried about cognitive-semiotic dislocation, then read this with a friend. At noon. With the TV blasting.

By the way

One of Farrago's favorite magazines, Sybil's Garage is now open for submissions.

Give 'em all you got.

(Not literally, that would piss the editors off. Just send one thing at a time with great vigor!)
