WEAPONIZER WELCOMES NEW EDITOR! QUARTERLY MAGAZINE ANNOUNCEMENT!
PLEASE WELCOME OUR NEW EDITOR, TOM SEWEL
Tom Sewel is better known to Weaponizer readers as Citrus Creed. A freelance journalist and writer, who blogs over at notevensurewhy, Tom has been a staunch supporter of Weaponizer over the last few years, helping out a lot behind the scenes and contributing ideas and research to the site's ongoing development, and producing stories like the staggeringly awesome 'Normative Free'. I am enormously pleased to be handing over the keys to Tom for the next few months, as one of the first in a series of Guest Editors personally selected by me to run things while I concentrate on bringing some new Weaponizer projects to fruition.
The first of these new projects is The Weaponizer Quarterly, a magazine featuring exclusive content from the Weaponizer writers, artists and photographers I have had the pleasure of working with over the last four years.
The first issue, which will be released in April, features interviews with rising star and Chicago juke scene regular CHRISSY MURDERBOT, whose My Year of Mixtapes this blog followed religiously, as he prepares to release a new album on Planet Mu. We also have interviews with Witch House / Experimental label boss Ben Verslius of TUNDRA DUBS, home of AIMON and Skeleton Kids, and ERIC HEISERRER, the man who recently rebooted the A Nightmare on Elm Street and The Thing franchises. Not to mention exclusive fiction, articles, comics and more - including an exclusive 6-page prologue to Weaponizer's new ongoing webcomic, A WICKED LITTLE TOWN, by K. Patrick Glover and Keith Perkins.
2011 is going to be an exciting year for Weaponizer, with lots of new projects and ways to get involved. As I hand over to Tom, who will be your host for the next wee while, running both the Weaponizer Feed, our Tumblr, and our Twitter, @Weaponizer. I'd like to say a huge thank you to all our contributors, readers and supporters over the years. Thanks for reading! It's been a genuinely transformative experience running the site, and I am looking forward to seeing what Tom and his successors bring to the table.
If you want to stay up to date with what I am up to, please come and follow me over to the Texturemusick tumblr, my LiveJournal, and my Twitter account @FluxTales, and of course keep an eye on our sister site Black Lantern Music for my forthcoming EP, 'Parasomnia.'
Big love peoples. Keep it Weapon!
