OK THE DAMNED

My erasure of the first postulates of Charles Fort's Book of the Damned, "  OK THE DAMNED," is now up at On Earth As It Is, a wonderful collection of prayer narratives curated by Matthew Simmons and Bryan Furuness. The site also features some beautiful work from Brian Oliu, Matthew Olzmann, Amy Minton, Matthew Specktor, Ken Baumann, Melissa Broder, Alicia Jo Rabins, Aaron Burch, Kirsty Logan, Ethel Rohan, Kyle Minor, Adam Robinson, Ray Vukcevic, Melanie Rae Thon, Nicole Walker, and many more.
