Roberto Bolaño: Literary Lion, Cash Cow?: The Q: GQ
"I have to ask about this quote on the back of the book. Bolaño said that Antwerp is "the only novel that doesn't embarrass me." Really?"

"It's from his famous Mexican Playboy interview. I lopped off the second half where he said it's "because [the book] continues to be unintelligible." "

Wonderful

Walking With Cthulhu - Mythogeography
Walking With Cthulhu:   
H. P. Lovecraft as psychogeographer , New York City  1924-26  
David Haden   (self-published) )

"Here is a strange beast. What might at first appear to be a piece of literary scholarship is many things: an insight into the embodied work of writing, a map of the ugly overlaying of racial anxieties and aesthetic terror, and a handbook for exploratory walking drawn from the notebook of a genius of dread."

Let’s talk about margins — The Message — Medium
"The Dictionary Man reaches behind him, grabs another dictionary, and shows the Paper Man a specimen of perfect dictionary usability. It’s exactly the sort of thing you’d never notice unless you lived and breathed dictionaries. Here, you try turning these pages, says the Dictionary Man. The Paper Man does so and responds with an, Oooooooooooooohhh, as if part of the matrix has been unzipped before him. He then apologizes and yells, WE WILL TRY HARDER while bowing deeply."

Book Sales Slipped In 2013 As Publishers Offered Fewer Blockbusters - Deadline.com
"Book sales in 2013 were so-so — but with a caveat – the Association of American Publishers and the Book Industry Study Group report today. Total net revenues for books and professional and scholarly journals fell 0.4% to $27.0B, with net units -1.2% to 2.6B, The numbers were drearier if you just look at the trade sector, which includes general consumer fiction and non-fiction, and religion. Net revenues there fell 2.3% to $14.6B, with units -1.7% to 2.3B. But the trade group says the numbers are a little misleading: 2012 “was the strongest year in publishing’s recent history with a series of blockbuster releases” including The Hunger Games and Fifty Shades Of Grey. Last year’s trade revenues were 4.5% higher than 2011 with units +11%."

One big fiction, read and written by us all | Books | The Observer
"The newly released iPhone and iPad app The Silent History collects case histories of a future epidemic of speechlessness, in the form of a serial novel released one day at a time. Each short episode is designed to be absorbed in 15 minutes and some of the stories are tied to particular locations: the reader stands within 10 metres of a dot on the map in order to unlock the section."

SVA Workshop: Books After Books | booktwo.org
"The workshop started with two briefs. The first examined the book cover: its purpose in the old world of bricks-and-mortar bookshops and bookshelves, and its new place online and embedded in devices, more avatar than wrapper for the book. The second looked at the problems of navigating a long-form electronic text, without the ability to thumb and spatially conceive of a solid block of paper."

Where the F**k Was I? (A Book)
"Francesco Pedraglio, who I saw perform at the National Portrait Gallery last week, spoke of “non-experiential memories”. He meant things which had not happened, but of which we have memories nonetheless. He meant delusions. (In the same evening, Tom McCarthy said “Realism is a literary style with no more purchase on the real than Burroughs or Gysin”.)"
