A Night of Apocalyptic Fiction at Atomic Books on Saturday

Lucy Corin's One Hundred Apocalypses and Other Apocalypses

Lucy Corin’s One Hundred Apocalypses and Other Apocalypses

On Friday, July 26, Atomic Books in Hampden will host two heavy-hitting fiction writers with new books on apocalypse.

Lucy Corin will be reading from her collection of stories One Hundred Apocalypses and Other Apocalypses, published by McSweeney’s last summer. The book offers up a collection of 100 flash fictions that capture variously traumatic, visionary, and transformative narrative moments — often disturbing and familiar all at once — as well as three longer pieces.

You can read several of the shorter apocalypses at McSweeney’s Internet Tendency. Read More →

Hampdenfest is my favorite annual Baltimore shindig. It’s community-minded. It’s big without being overwhelming. And its late-summer date means festival-goers are less prone to getting scorched in the sun. That’s why it is such a shame that Hampdenfest’s 2014 event has been abruptly canceled. Read More →

Hey there, I’m Frank. I’m a very sweet one year old Basenji mix with a mild manner mixed with lots of spunk. I know how to “sit” and am now learning “down”. Following people around and acting like your shadow is fun. And believe it or not, I enjoy being carried around and held like a baby! I also like stuffed animals, food and squeaky toys. In my previous home I lived with dogs and cats…and I really enjoyed being with the other animals. Please stop in to meet me and see if we are meant for each other. Read More →
