Black Clock 7 Sizzles

Valencia, CA, June 7, 2007 --The seventh issue of Black Clock is the most provocative issue of the journal yet. It features twenty-five stories, one essay and four poems about sex and the erotic by such writers as Samuel R. Delany, Janet Fitch, Aimee Bender, Lynne Tillman, Geoff Nicholson, Francesca Lia Block, Rachel Resnick, Brian Evenson, Lisa Teasley, Seth Greenland, Tara Ison, Rachel Resnick, John Haskell and others. This current issue will begin heating up newsstands and bookstores in late June.

Published by the California Institute of the Arts (CalArts) in association with the MFA Writing Program, Black Clock features work by prominent national writers, talented regional authors and the very best emerging writers.

Black Clock 7 includes Yxta Maya Murray's A Girl Called Casanova, in which the world's greatest lover takes female form and sets out to seduce Angelina Jolie; Wanda Coleman's Howlin9 With the Woofdog, about a tryst between a well-known radio DJ and a reluctant virgin; Joy Nicholson's Manson Girl, a tale at once sweet, funny and chilling about the sexual dynamics of a murderous cult; and Tom Carson's My Mother, Marie Christ, (b. Hope Springs, TN, 1951 d. Memphis, July 4, 1985), about a boy named Jesus growing up in Reagan's America who has a thing for his Mom.

Novelist, critic and CalArts MFA Writing Program faculty member Steve Erickson is the Editor of Black Clock. Dwayne Moser, adjunct faculty and CalArts MFA Writing Program coordinator, and Bruce Bauman, also an adjunct member of the Writing Program faculty, serve as Senior Editors. Gail Swanlund, Graphic Design faculty at CalArts, is the magazine's art director.
