Dear Friends,
We are thrilled to announce the release of our Spring 2016 issue of Peculiar Mormyrid. This is our largest issue to date with contributions from 61 participants across 15 countries around the world. 2016 also marks the 50th anniversary since the death of André Breton. In homage to his memory and the living spirit of revolt that it continues to inspire, we have included a section dedicated especially to him, “Pas Un Cadavre”, which we have also made available as a standalone volume. Surrealist greetings! Happy Friday the 13th!
