Book Launch for Locus Solus

Tomorrow night is the book launch for Locus Solus, my new novel-translation-remix of the Raymond Roussel 1914 classic.

This centenary edition of Roussel's proto-surrealist book is being published by Counterpath Press. Here is the announcement:
Please come to Counterpath on Friday, October 3, 2014, at 7 p.m., to help us celebrate the publication of Mark Amerika’s new book with Counterpath, Locus Solus, an event that will be combined with the opening of Albert Chong’s exhibit “The Photomosaics.” Books will be on sale.
For a description of the four-month online performance that led to the publication of the book, as well as a smattering of author notes that connect this work to my larger Inside the Green Box transmedia art project, you can read Locus Solus - Centenary Edition Auto-Translated by Mark Amerika.
