(Book 60 in the Conjunctions series)
An anthology of stories edited by Bradford Morrow
Missing persons, phantom limbs, lost masterpieces, lost islands, sensory deprivation and amnesia: the In Absentia issue of Conjunctions explores the presence of absence and the black holes in our everyday lives. The concept of the partial, of the unwhole (and unwholesome) is elucidated in stories, poems and memoirs that take vanishing and vacancy as both their subject and their form, creating fractional characters and void-riddled landscapes out of missing chapters, unfinished sentences, half-heard whispers and blotted manuscripts. This sixtieth issue of the indispensable literary magazine features the work of Joyce Carol Oates, Maxine Chernoff, Brandon Krieg, Julia Elliott, Miranda Mellis, Karen Hays and Samuel R. Delaney and many others.
