Previous Junk Contributor Ryan Hilary Available on the Web

Ryan Hilary, a previous Junk contributor, is experimenting with a blog that we think is very interesting. Some have even described it as a “tongue and cheek nod to Russian existentialist writers like Dostoyevsky.”

We encourage you to go over and check it out. See how that Russian existentialist vibe is relevant (if it is) for writers in the media age.

And keep watching this space. Next month we’ve got a story and an interview from none other than the amazing Cheryl Strayed.

We’re so excited.


Some Kind of Animal by James Brown

Doping scandals come, and doping scandals go, but you can count on James Brown to deliver the goods in Some Kind of Animal, his incredible true story about using performance enhancing drugs, now appearing in our summer edition of Junk.

Also, dear readers, we have a great surprise for you in the early fall, but I don’t want to reveal it just yet. I do want to hint. Another great writer, someone really sweet, this time from our own Pacific Northwest backyard. Generous as she is talented, she’s given us permission to run a fabulous story, and we’re proud to present it for the very first time online in its entirety.

Keep watching.
