zp-vol-1-cover-for-promo2-copy

Zizobotchi Papers: volume 1, winter, 2015 (Baker & Brady), is the premier issue of a journal dedicated to the novella. Jeff Phillips and Daniel Gerald Mac Rae, who previously collaborated together at Three Leaves Theatre on a variety of stage productions, have teamed up again to launch a publication to highlight one of their favorite forms, the novella. Jeff and Dan are the guinea pigs on volume 1.

 

The first issue of the Zizobotchi Papers features Proboiotic Hot Sauce by Jeff Phillips, and Chainsaw Guy by Daniel Gerald Mac Rae. Probiotic follows the character Sloan Doan as he returns to Chicago after a falling out with his family to stay with an eccentric dancer, Libby. They attend a warehouse party where a food competition reveals a cast of characters as mysterious as the place itself. Chainsaw makes us witness to a party that escalates into bedlam for Dale, leaving him – and his Honda – vulnerable to the whims of a psychopath.

 

Jeff Phillips’ short fiction has appeared in Seeding MeatThis Zine Will Change Your LifeMetazenChicago Literati and Literary Orphans. has written two full-length plays Magnets and Division & Shame. His first published novella is Chainsaw Guy. Actor Jordan Hoisington has appeared in the play Magnets by Zizobotchi Papers’ featured writer Daniel Gerald Mac Rae, and will read Rae’s work.
