Sarah Jacobs – An Accumulation of Fictions

I have lived quietly in this house for most of my life.
Books accumulated and a space had to be cleared. 100s of volumes of fiction — novels and tales — were selected for the cull.
Before I could dispose of the books I took images of 384 of the volumes and placed them, together with other information, in spreadsheets.
The spreadsheets are a repository for the data.
I also collected text from each volume, following an algorithm which was intended to ensure that I was not just picking out favourite bits, or suppressing parts I did not like.
An Accumulation of Fictions is an aggregate formed from the collected text.

Out now on Colebrooke Publications. The book will be launched on 22nd June with readings from it by M.J. Weller and Richard Makin: Cass Art, 66 Colebrooke Row, London, N1 8AB., 5PM – 8pm.

Reality Street launches

Dwelling by Richard Makin
“This is prose you must learn to experience, before you begin to interpret … The pages in their beautiful and delirious abstraction are ordered poetry: revised, corrected, disciplined, polished and then given their head.” – IAIN SINCLAIR

Head of a Man by John Gilmore
“I admire this spare, lean gem of a novel, so lyrical and evocative its brief prose fragments get into your head and stay there.” – GARY GEDDES

STONE SQUID experimental art space, 78 High Street, Old Town, Hastings TN34 3EL. Saturday 5 November 2011, 6:00pm, free admission – refreshments available.

(Subject to final confirmation and not necessarily in that order)

More than 80 people actively supported Reality Street in 2010. This support is vital for the continuation of the press, as it has been in the past few years. All Supporters, in addition to receiving copies of every book published during the year, are entitled to be listed as a Supporter in the back of the books and in relevant publicity, unless they have expressed a wish to remain anonymous.
