Anobium is literature; a collusion of molecules, fused into a conceptual (w)hole. As a conceptual entity, Anobium is the headbirth of Benjamin van Loon and ?Mary J. Levine,? who doesn?t exist. Anobium is Chicago-based, independent publisher who specializes in the compilation and assemblage of strange, surreal and insectile literature. Our aim is to produce consciously designed and intelligently written contemporary literature. Those who pronounce auguries about the Death of the Book fail to realize that what is death for some is rebirth for others. We believe technology compliments our interaction with artifactual literature; it does not demolish it. Our relatively ?short? volumes (80-100 pages) and chapbooks will read easily, store safely and wear evenly – as a good book should.

I get excited by writing that tries new things. When a writer can make that comparison that I wish I had come up with first. When the poem isn’t trying too hard and somehow makes me feel. When a piece is so lovely and gosh darn sensitive to human nature that I can’t help but sigh. I love newness, strangeness, but I equally enjoy traditional poetry, language used in a precise and controlled manner, and when a writer creates a world that I have never seen before. It’s the kind of writing that you know you like as soon as you read it, that lingers, that makes you come back to it and read it again.
We use mainly Indian writers telling Indian stories, across a variety of genres so that the magazine is both entertaining and informative. We also publish translations of Indian regional language writing, as well as of non-Indian languages into English. We hope this magazine will bring out closet writers and become a platform for new talent as well as encourage the reading habit among those who find novels a challenge on their time!
Writers interested in contributing to n+1 should note that we come out only three times each year, and that most if not all of the slots available for a given issue will have been filled by the editors many months before publication. That said, if you would like to brave the odds, the best submissions guidelines are those implied by the magazine itself. Read an issue or two through to get a sense of whether your piece might fit into n+1.
Twice a year Silk Road publishes finely crafted fiction, essays, poetry and translations that give readers a vivid point of exchange or an interaction that could occur only in a specific time and space. This event could be captured in a poem or short story as well as in reportage or travel writing. It could happen in a classroom in New Zealand or on the expanse of the African plains. We welcome work set in any location in the world including the U.S. Anyone from anywhere can enter into the conversation. We all start somewhere, so “place” is the touchstone the magazine uses for the pieces we publish. However we operate with no narrow definition of that word. The writers we feature take our readers somewhere crucial, defining and relevant.

We aim to publish talented unknown writers, and sell the journal online and by consignment at places such as City Lights and the Beat Museum. All proceeds will go to the production costs of the journal. We hope to create something dripping with artistic integrity, with no funding or support of any kind from The Man. AUTOLYCUS IS NOW AVAILABLE AT CITY LIGHTS BOOKSTORE!
