Little Big Cremaster by Paul Willerton

a message from gigantic to you.

Dear readers,

We have new content on our website. Including:

-A story and poem by Saša Stanišić.

-A story by Brian Hurley.

-An exclusive preview of LITTLE BIG CREMASTER 3 and the full LITTLE BIG CREMASTER 2 by Paul Willerton.

We also have a special announcement:

Gigantic #2, the America issue, is coming out next month! We promise it will have more screams than a bald eagle, be more stunning than purple mountains majesty and taste almost as fresh as mom’s apple pie. Some of the literary legends whose names will be engraved on the steep cliff of its pages include Sam Lipsyte, Lydia Millet, Clancy Martin, Margo Jefferson, Ken Sparling, Deb Olin Unferth and Adrian Tomine.

In anticipation of issue 2, Uncle Gigantic wants YOU! to send us your biographies of famous Americans. These can be as short as you want, as true as you want and in whatever style or form you want. The only requirement it is that the subject is American and your patriotic words total no more than 300. That’s 300 words maximum, good citizen. Please send them to Giganticmag at with the words “American Bio” in the subject line. We will read them from now until March 1st and post our favorites online with accompanying art.

Thank you,

The Editors

The Faster Times, The Rumpus, and Gigantic Present:

The 2009 Wall Street Holiday Party

Monday, December 14, 2009, 7 p.m.-10 p.m.

Glasslands 289 Kent Avenue (between 1st and Grand) Brooklyn

Come drink champagne and party like you just got a $3 million bonus!

As creative types–writers, journalists, artists etc.–we tend to miss out on big corporate holiday blowouts complete with chocolate fountains and drunken co-workers embarrassingly making out beneath mistletoe. Those of us who work from home rarely even see other people, or wear “clothing.”

So this year, let’s don our Wall St.-inspired Holiday Best (You know, that suit you had dry-cleaned about three years ago just in case you an opportunity to wear it arose), and get down like it’s 2003 and Bernie Madoff has yet to steal everyone’s money.

For one night only we can all pretend to be rich.

If you actually have a corporate job, never fear. This party will provide the kind entertainment no Wall St. firm would ever allow. We’ll be having an (affordable) silent auction, and entertainment TBA.

Join us in celebrating another fun, if fiscally irresponsible year!

Opus 217. Against the Enamel of a Background Rhythmic with Beats and Angles, Tones, and Tints, Portrait of M. Félix Fénéon in 1890, by Paul Signac

Stories in Three Lines, v. 2

(Three-line Summaries with Links to Their Original Forms)

Inspired by Félix Fénéon’s Novels in Three Lines. Below, two stories, a novel and a collection of rejection letters are discovered, digested and summarized, all within three lines.

The prisoner had been imprisoned for ripping a poster — “accidentally,” he claimed.

It was like the two of them were trying to make a snowman without enough snow.

Listen to a game on the radio, listen to people talk, listen to what happens when they talk, stuff’ll happen when they talk.

He could have just said “No.”

THE CAVEMAN by Xiaoda Xiao, published in The Collagist.

WE DECIDED NOT TO GIVE THEM FACES by Kim Chinquee, also published in The Collagist.)

SPORTS by Kenneth Goldsmith, published by Make Now, Los Angeles, 2008.
