Issue thirteen of PUSH goes to the printers tomorrow. At almost 80 pages it is the second largest edition. The standard of writing though has possibly never been stronger.
There are fine debuts from Kit Caless, Linen, Nice Grey Checks and Martin Hayes with Shattered Glass in Shingle. As well as fiction from Steve Finbow, Dickson Telfer, Ian Cusack, Michael Keenaghan, u.v. ray and Rude Girl.
While our regular stronghold of poets once again do themselves and PUSH proud. Tim Wells, Joseph Ridgwell, Jared A. Carnie, Gwil James Thomas all return with guns blazing and are joined by Chimene Sulyman, who makes her debut.
As interviews have been an integral part of the mag since David Peace and Jenni Fagan appeared in Issue 7, we have another great interview for you. I am delighted that the former guitarist of That Petrol Emotion, Raymond Gorman, has given a superb and exclusive interview where Flann O’Brien, The Troubles, The Undertones, alcoholism, writing and important info about his new band, The Everlasting Yeah, plus so much more is all covered. It is a great read and puts the cherry on the cake.
And while the theme of the issue was drinking, you will definitely feel when reading that there is a distinctive Irish flavour to issue thirteen.
Because of the increased size I have jacked up the price by 50p.
PUSH 13 will be on sale this Friday 26th at the latest East London Renaissance function which is at The Bell, Whitechapel from 7pm. And it is FREE to get in. Even though poster at bottom of page says it is £3, I can assure you there is now no charge. Head down to the cellar bar for some quality readings and some lively adult entertainment.
Issue thirteen will also be sold before and after West Ham/QPR on Sunday 5th October.
The street price is only £2.50 but you can also purchase via Paypal for £3.50 that includes p&p at this link – firstname.lastname@example.org
It will also be orderable on the website by the weekend. www.pushmagazine.co.uk
Thanks to those of you who have already pre-ordered, there should be a mail out before this weekend. And thanks to all of you who are about to order.
If this mag didn’t sell then we wouldn’t be here now on the verge of yet another superb issue.
Cheers brothers and sisters,
