Listed below are links to weblogs that reference "No R" -- a short story by David Lehman [with a coda by Borges]:


Very nice--"nonpareil" ambushed me.

Don't forget about No Z the magazine dedicated to a behind the scenes look at gossip magazines and British tabloids.

Thank you, Russell -- et merci Marissa for your clever suggestion: No Z, the magazine for Nosy Parkers everywhere. I always liked it that folks we call nosy bodies the Brits call nosy parkers.

This is what Mark Minton proposes:

"No M -- The magazine of choice among Russian ravanchists who claim that Alaska was never sold to the U.S. and all English place names there should revert to their Russian origins. This magazine is also popular among anti-Buddhist fanatics who deplore the inane chanting of the religion's mindless, narcotic devotional ditties."

No M might also have an appeal for people who feel strongly, pro or con, about a certain influential, somewhat enigmatic, and very cunning linguist with radical political views and a curious agenda. -- DL

Jamie Katz's candidates (from The American Scholars page) delight me

In addition to the titles David Lehman describes, the fellows of Winged Foot University—whose endowment is founded, incidentally, on a winning bet between billionaires at the Westchester golf club that famously refused membership to Bill Clinton—have recently added three more digital resources targeted at the tenure-track trade:

No D: The Journal for People Who are Kind of Interested in the Lymphatic System;

No X-it, devoted to post-structuralist interrogations of Sartre’s Huis Clos; and

No N, a much needed complement for those who know where and how, from the editors of No Y.

No X-it is a, existential natural! -- DL

Yes, David, I wish I had thought of that obvious No M association! You could have helped me get there, however, if you had just called your narrator "Chomsky." Alas. Mark

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
