Dear LOST Listers--
Welcome to the first LOST Magazine update (though you've found it--good for you!).
Our first issue comes online at www.lostmag.com on December 1, and our blowout first installment will feature losses of:
--the soul (purported to weigh 21 grams), from the author of STIFF and SPOOK, Mary Roach;
--financial well-being, from the author of RATS, Robert Sullivan;
--Vietnam War vets, from the writer and author of CHASING THE SEA, Tom Bissell;
--sensitive parts, from memoirist and former Nerve.com sex columnist Grant Stoddard;
--and many, many more (often heart-wrenching, frequently silly, and habitually obscure).
The first few issues will also present:
--established and emerging writers of every persuasion and many ilks;
--a lost and, well, lost section--the LOST Classifieds;
--LOST fiction and nonfiction;
--lost people, lost places, and lost things;
--lost handwriting, lost body parts, lost islands, lost golf balls, and lost property.
You'll find it all here.
*[We're planning a great event in New York for this December, too, so stay tuned for information and an invitation.]*
But with all that's going on, we're still far from done, here; keep your submissions coming and spread the word about LOST; keep checking the temporary site and blog at www.lostmag.com; have your friends join the LOST List and forward this email to everyone you can; and keep your head up: you'll be finding yourself at LOST in 42 days.
P.S. We're reading for Issue #2 now--send your writing to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com and your art or photography to firstname.lastname@example.org.
