The Rumpus Book Club has chosen 9L contributor Roy Kesey's first novel Pacazo as their pick for January. If you're unfamiliar with The Rumpus Book Club, check it out. The book isn't due to be released until February 15, but you can get it over a month early if you join the book club.
It just so happens that the next issue of Ninth Letter (vol. 7, no. 2) will feature "Cairn," an excerpt from Pacazo. As fans of Roy's work (he also previously appeared in vol. 3, no. 2 & vol. 1, no. 2), we're looking forward to the release of his novel. Congratulations Roy! On Wednesday, I'll post an excerpt from "Cairn" (yes, an excerpt from an excerpt) as the third teaser from our new issue.
Also, don't forget we are running our Holiday Sale, where you get an extra issue added to your subscription, so you get 3 issues instead of just 2. To get the special, head over to the webstore and type "Holiday Sale" in the special instructions box.
