SUBTERRAN in Top 25 for JukePop’s 2016 Summer Writing Project

subterran_cover_art2UPDATE: JukePop appears to be no more, so any links here to Subterran are darker than its clubs on a lo-power cold-day shutdown. My plan for this bad boy is to most likely republish it via Wattpad. Stay tuned.

The aforementioned SUBTERRAN has been included in the Top 25 for JukePop’s Summer Writing Project this year. JukePop is partnering with cultural arts promoters and publishers 1888 to select one of these 25 novellas based on July’s reader analytics (retention + reading time) for publication. Head on over to JukePop to get your hallucinatory, bio-enhanced fix and show some support. Votes, comments, and time spent reading will increase the odds of getting published and are greatly appreciated.

1888 is also conducting a series of podcast interviews from those involved in the Summer Writing Project. You can check out mine here, where I talk with 1888’s Dean Moses about the writing process and why I love science fiction in an episode of their podcast The How The Why.

Subterran on JukePop

Subterran by Corin ReyburnMy experimental first novel, Subterran, is now available chapters at a time over at JukePop—a community publishing platform where one must have the first chapter approved by editorial staff prior to publishing subsequent chapters on your own. I’ve published the first five short little chapters, and will be updating weekly every Thursday with at least two new chapters. We’ll see how this experiment goes. Votes and comments are appreciated.

Subterran is a biopunk absurdist acid trip and was largely a learning process, but I’m happy to make it available online for whoever happens upon it to enjoy.

“Back Cover” copy:
In a subterranean colony called Generik beneath Antarctic ice, Jonah, a bioenhanced technosexual—hip, stunning, and upgraded to his max allocated pleasure capacity—has his pick of the bubble gum girls and boys out on the dancefloor. Fantasy and reality are a whirlwind trip of saturated screen images and nights spent in a dark and decadent club called Hypocrite Wedding.

But ignorance breeds an unwitting victim. When summoned to take place in Generik’s procreation project, he uncharacteristically falls in love with his assigned partner, Mari. When she gets involved in Generik’s sinister venture “EternaLife”—where the ultimate genetic experiment is the goal—Jonah must leave behind his capricious lifestyle, and find a way to infiltrate a system which knows his every move.

Inventory of the World - Jersey Devil Press A flash fiction piece of mine, “Inventory of the World”, was published in this month’s issue of Jersey Devil Press, an all-poetry-and-flash issue that’s short and sweet. Have a gander at Issue 73 – Jersey Devil Press, and read about what happens when your job is to catalog everything from silk scarves to rocket launchers.

A couple things…

Diamonds-on-My-Windshield-by-corin-reyburnA flash fic of mine called Diamonds On My Windshield (thank you Tom Waits) has been published over at mashstories.com. They did a bit of editing here that I think botched the poetry of the wording a bit, but the meat of it is still basically the same. Mash Stories is a flash fiction competition where one has to use three specific words in their story. Check out the competition guidelines.

subvercity_transmit_logoAlso worth another shout-out is the podcast I write for and co-produce, the subterranean, time-out-of-time joint known as the SubverCity Transmit. Check out our latest podcast featuring the story “Companion” by Kyle Whitacre. What happens when your only companion is an artificial intelligence?

2113: An Oral History of the Last God

2113A beautiful Apocalypse, fresh off the presses from Subtopian Magazine. 2113 is a collaborative effort of 20+ writers teaming up anonymously to tell the tale of the rise, the fall, and the rising again of a new civilization. It’s a fascinating read, and I’m not saying that simply because I’m a part of it! The writers have really outdone themselves to make a beautiful, tragic, hopeful piece of work that I’m proud to have participated in and to get a chance to share with you.
