Inspired by Rose's agent chastising him for using a dot-matrix printer for his manuscripts, and named for the block where he and partner Catherine Texier lived, BETWEEN C & D was the center of some of the most innovative fiction to emerge from mid-80s NYC. Produced entirely by hand and home printer, C&D combined pioneering desktop publishing methods with more bespoke elements such as hand-drawn/stamped covers, tipped-in original art, flexidisks, etc., all slipped into large plastic bags meant to evoke drug packaging. This issue includes contributions from Richard Kostelanetz, Lynne Tillman, John Farris, and others.
