The Moosehead Anthology 10: Future Welcome
Future Welcome: The Moosehead Anthology X. I like anniversaries.... Immediately I thought of fifty years before: 1955, the last year as mindblowing and strange. This, in turn, led me to play with the experiment idea, the X-Files aspect: I wanted poems and prose both of our moment, and yet imbued with the same sense of retro-kitsch that popularly defines the 50s–works about the future, robots, space travel, technology, and sci-fi terror. I wanted freshness in terms of subject matter and expression, disregard for diction and social mores, a fascination with the new, the weird, and the innovative, just for the hell of it–the best writers, Canadian and otherwise, intent on capturing the imagination, unconcerned by conventional literary success, making a difference. Future Welcome is, in a nutshell, “ultra-new writing for the 21st century!” with all the queer, geeky, subversive brio such a movie-poster phrase, retrofitted for our purposes, suggests.
