Our next issue of the journal will focus on Carlos Castaneda, his works, life, and anything in-between. As always, we will be accepting scholarship, essays, fiction, poetry, ephemera, sacrificial channeling put to paper, and whatever else you want to send to us that is able to pass the vibe check. From the most prudish to the extremely experimental, just try us out. Castaneda the man never felt constrained by the set boundaries of his time, so if you’re thinking about developing a project that is not quite too focused on his work itself but is tangentially relevant, follow his example and just do it. If it can stand on its own we are more than likely to love it. No deadline on sight, as we are still working on issue 5: Zones, but take note that we are now setting a hard submissions deadline for the Zones issue (September 30th).

Enquiries should be sent to ceo47@outlook.com

The CEO is still taking submissions for Parasol 5 which will be themed on the topic of Zones. The inspiration comes from the Strugatskian, Tarkovskian and Lynchian usage of the term. Writers however should not feel limited to this though the sense of Zone is intended to convey something otherworldly e.g. Ballard and psychoanalysis are both capable of doing this without unambiguous weirdness.

Fiction/theory fiction/poetry/art and straightforward theory are all welcome.

Enquiries should be sent to ceo47@outlook.com
