Houston: Press Release
Houston: Press Release – For immediate release, August 16, 2017. SAINT JULIAN PRESS, INC., is honored and excited to announce that we will publish – dreamland trash – by Dylan Krieger, in the spring of 2018.
“This is the opposite of a sophomore slump. Like the latest subatomic experiments in above-the-speed-of-light velocity, for a fraction of a second, when the same particle is in two places at the same time, Dylan Krieger will be there and elsewhere. As if Giving Godhead weren't good enough, suddenly she hits out past light-years of stratospheres and reproductive insanities of biology back to the "invertebrate mother" and the lunacy of a planet organized largely around humanoid self-destruction. The scale becomes both precise and enormous, echoes of things heard as if through water in a glass. You will have to think about the sound of it all for a few days, it is both so familiar and so volatile. dreamland trash is one of the most perfect IED’s ever made.”
