As we find our dials increasingly tuned to the pleasures, excesses and pitfalls of our digital age and format, Don’t Do It approaches technology — like everything else — aslant.
In this issue, our fifth, we turn to electricity in all its iterations: as substance, as metaphor, as power source, as frisson.
Our usual host of crackling fiction and poetry is joined by essays on all things electrical, two interviews with hypertext author Michael Joyce and actor-novelist-playwright Neil Bartlett, a music mix and, if you hunt, more than one video.
Plug in, play, and enjoy.
Featuring fiction from Ayesha Siddiqi, Richard Kostelanetz, Paul McMichael, DS Maolalaí, Gill Haigh and Tal Bibas.
Essays by Betsy Lewis-Holmes, Richard Bosch, Robert Stagg and Stephanie Boland.
Music by Debi Ghose of, among other venues, NTS radio.
