NINE/ELEVEN:20

Today is the 20th anniversary of 9/11, “nine-eleven,” the events of September 11, 2001. To commemorate the occasion, APOCALYPSE CONFIDENTIAL is launching what we’ve misnomerically dubbed a zine–maybe we’ll put out the print version in time for NINE/ELEVEN:25, 30, 40, or maybe future events will eclipse 9/11, the fabled 9/11 2. We’ll have a zine for that.

Please enjoy the submissions for NINE/ELEVEN:20. They range from poetry and reminiscences to critical excavations and short fiction. Some are about 9/11, others are more…around it. But if you squint hard enough, you might see the outline of a tower looming behind the text.
