Always Crashing Issue One (Paperback)

Always Crashing is a magazine of fiction, poetry, and nameless things around and in-between. We are interested in surfaces and form, in works that seek something via untruth, fantasy, artificiality, the plastic, deep superficiality, and attention to their own construction. We are interested in writing that strikes curious poses; in the "experimental," not as an avant-garde, but as a furthering of a subterranean literary tradition. We are interested, ultimately, in the aesthetic: the beautiful and the sublime, sure, but also the boring, the dumb, the merely interesting, the zany, the disgusting, the cute--particularly when pushed into strange and unfamiliar territories.
