Birkensnake is an irregularly published, imperfectly bound collection of fiction. Fiction! Paper! Thread! It is exactly what you want in your lifeboat.
Birkensnake 6 is here!
This is no ordinary Birkensnake: it was edited in seven different versions by seven different teams of guest editors, strangers to each other until they signed on to this project. Print editions were made by seven different bookmakers. Many people have been part of this Birkensnake, even more people than usual, more than we are comfortable thinking of. If you want a print copy of Birkensnake 6 for yourself, you will have to become one of them: the only way to get one is to come to one of the stops on the Birkensnake 6 Tour and read aloud from a copy of the thing while standing in front of a microphone. There is no financial exchange; the only cost is a moment of your voice.
If you donated through Kickstarter and have a one-book reward coming, we’ll be putting those in the mail soon. If you have the all-book reward coming, we have to wait until we actually get all the books (there are some laggards), so it may be a little longer.
If you are a writer of fiction, please consider submitting your work for Birkensnake 7.
