Here's a pic of Lance Olsen reading from [[ there. ]] last night at Saint George's English Bookshop in Berlin. It looks like a good crowd.


Afterwards there was a gathering at Bar Gagarin with Olsen and fellow A-OP author Laurence A. Rickels. Can you pick them out?

LANCE OLSEN is author of more than 20 books of and about innovative writing. His short stories, essays and reviews have appeared in hundreds of journals and anthologies, including The Village Voice, BOMB, McSweeney’s and Best American Non-Required Reading. A Guggenheim, Berlin Prize, DAAD, N.E.A. Fellowship, and Pushcart Prize recipient as well as a Fulbright Scholar, he teaches experimental theory and practice at the University of Utah. He will read from [[ there.]], a trash-diary critifictional meditation on the confluence of travel, curiosity, paying attention and innovative writing practices that he wrote last year while a fellow at the American Academy in Berlin, and from his new novel, Theories of Forgetting, influenced by earthwork artist Robert Smithson's Spiral Jetty.

Professor of Art and Theory at the Academy of Fine Arts-Karlsruhe as well as Sigmund Freud Professor of Media and Philosophy at the European Graduate School, LAURENCE A. RICKELS has published numerous studies of the phenomenon he calls "unmourning," a term that became the title of his trilogy Aberrations of Mourning, The Case of California and Nazi Psychoanalysis. He is also the author of The Vampire Lectures, The Devil Notebooks and I Think I Am: Philip K. Dick, a schizoanalysis of the science fiction author's life and work. He will read from his latest book, SPECTRE, an examination of Ian Fleming's novels and film adaptations that looks awry at Bond through the sieve of psychoanalytic theory, history and Kulturindustrie.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


RAW DOG SCREAMING PRESS ACQUIRES ANTI-OEDIPUS PRESS
Raw Dog Screaming Press has acquired worldwide rights to publish all future and backlist titles from Anti-Oedipus Press under the imprint of the same name, effective immediately.

Dedicated to publishing high-quality fiction and nonfiction, Anti-Oedipus Press was founded in Fort Wayne, Indiana in 2013 by novelist, editor and English professor D. Harlan Wilson, who has described the mission of A-OP as follows: 
"Anti-Oedipus Press is a publisher of literary 'schiz-flows' that aspire to chart new boundaries in narrative and theory. Taking our cue from the poststructuralist writings of Deleuze and Guattari, A-OP publishes authors who write to the Nth power, making rhizomes instead of roots and sculpting innovative bodies without organs in the form of fiction, nonfiction, literary criticism, cultural studies and pop philosophy."
A-OP joins two other imprints under the RDSP fold: Guide Dog Books, which specializes in "nonfiction with incisors," and Dog Star Books, which specializes in "science fiction that goes for the throat." RDSP itself will continue to focus on “fiction that foams at the mouth,” releasing cross-genre works from the literary fringe.

A-OP’s most recent titles include a work of critical theory on the James Bond oeuvre by esteemed Sigmund Freud Professor of Media and Philosophy Laurence A. Rickels, a reprint of SF legend Barry Malzberg’s novel Galaxies, a reprint of best-selling SF author Kim Stanley Robinson’s novel A Short, Sharp Shock, a critifictional travel narrative by American postmodern writer and theorist Lance Olsen, and a collection of docufiction by "guerrilla writer" Harold Jaffe.

RDSP will sell and market A-OP titles through Ingram and our usual sales channels throughout the rest of the world.

D. Harlan Wilson, who is also the managing editor of Guide Dog Books, will continue to function as editor-in-chief of A-OP. Along with his team, he will prepare manuscripts for publication and work with RDSP and A-OP editors and authors.
