Wednesday, Dec 7 2011
There’s lots more to savor in the winter issue of literary magazine Zyzzyva than Katie Chase’s scary/sweet story “Bloodfeud,” but for our money that’s the yank-you-by-the-short-hairs standout.

Its prose is by turns mean-girl sharp, noir dark, and winningly lyrical; out loud its insights and surprises should kill. We hope to find out tonight, when Chase and other contributors convene.

Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
