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.

What does it mean to be from a place or a position? To move from one position to another? What does it mean to be "moved" by an aesthetic experience?
More than a decade ago, science fiction author and physicist Gregory Benford pointed out in his essay, "The South and Science Fiction" (2000), that the U.S. South very rarely appears in discussions of the genre. For a region that is so often characterized by its fixation on the past, looking to the future or alternative worlds seems counterintuitive. This panel aims to take up this gauntlet and feature work that engages with the U.S. South in science fiction, fantasy, and all forms of speculative fiction. Papers could consider speculative fiction by southern authors, texts that represent the South and conceptions of southern identity, or explore how the genre allows for a more complicated redefinition of regional, national, or interplanetary boundaries.
In Quentin Tarantino's neo-Western, The Hateful Eight (2015), a British hangman [Tim Roth] settles a dispute between Union and Confederate veterans stranded together in a remote tavern during a Wyoming blizzard by drawing a line down the middle of the room: one side is the South and the other is the North. The ploy fails, as regional schema often do. For all of the insistence on boundaries, the movie and its characters find themselves straddling the dividing line.
