...it will be in the LA Review of Books and I like Shaviro's book so much, I've written a piece that could be some kind of foreword to the whole project, I feel. Or afterword. It's mostly for people who have never yet heard of speculative realism (do they exist?), with some familiar faces showing up too.
The nice thing about LARB is that it's fully available online, so stand by. It's the big big picture of the big big picture. Shaviro's book puts you in that kind of mood.
