BSJ: The B. S. Johnson Jounal
contact email: 

The B.S. Johnson Journal is pleased to announce the new theme for our forthcoming issue : "Truth". Johnson struggled with questions of truth his entire life and we now invite research papers, journalistic essays, creative writing, reviews and reminiscences all struggling with the same issue. These might entail readings and reassessments of Johnson's work from contemporary theoretical perspectives, pieces utilising historical or archive research, or new works that have been created based on or responding to Johnson's work and insights. Johnson produced a lot of fictional and programmatic efforts aimed at telling the "truth" in the hope that it would make up for the "chaotic" nature of life.
