Come join us in the party tonight!  Mingle with BOMB’s staff and recent contributors  while celebrating 28 years of legendary interviews.

Galapagos Art Space—now located in DUMBO, Brooklyn—is soon to be the first LEED certified ‘green’ cultural venue in New York City.  Nestled beside Brooklyn Bridge Park, between the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges, and housed in a former horse stable, the new Galapagos Art Space was awarded ‘Best New Art Space’ by New York Press, and was awarded a ‘2009 Building Brooklyn Award’ for art and culture.

Habitus: A Diaspora Journal

Habitus is poised to make a lasting impact with its unique global vision, world-class writing, and original translations. While rooted in the experience and language of the Jewish Diaspora, the magazine cannot be limited by the parochial boundaries of any single group. Habitus is not just about cataloguing distinctions. It’s a way of using the whole world as raw material for creating a more complete picture of ourselves.

Editor Joshua Ellison introduces writer Leonid Kostyukov’s fiction and translator Mariya Gusev.


Tantalum, a literary annual, presents the many possibilities of the fictive, exploring a diversity of forms, methods, and ideas. Tantalum is interested in work that cultivates its own expectations, as necessary, moving across the boundaries of known forms and engaging their thresholds.

Editor Yasmine Alwan introduces poet Mina Pam Dick.


Gigantic is a new biannual literary arts journal based in New York that features short prose, dialogues, art and poetry. The debut issue, launched in April 2009, included fiction from Ed Park, Justin Taylor, and Shane Jones along with other new, exciting voices; dialogues with Malcolm Gladwell, Gary Shteyngart, Deb Olin Unferth, Joe Wenderoth and Tao Lin; and artwork including line drawings, collage and photography both odd and beautiful.

Co-Editor Ann DeWitt introduces fiction writer Adam Wilson.
