Hang on a second while we grab that post for you.
Hey pals, if you missed the news at the launch party, Issue 9 (up now at http://dragnetmag.net) is going to be our last issue, as we are going on indefinite hiatus. Our website is going to stay up for the forseeable future, so you can still read all the issues for free and you can still order print copies of Dragnet Anthology 1 through it (and Dragnet Anthology 1 is available as an eBook on Kobo). Thanks for a wonderful three years, everyone. If you’re looking for a Canadian online home for your fiction and poetry, try our friends at The Puritan (http://www.puritan-magazine.com), and if you’re looking for a humour-focused online home for your writing, try our buds at Untoward Magazine in Chicago (http://untowardmag.com).

All We Want Is Everything
By Andrew Sullivan (ARP)
Sullivan, one of the country’s most talented young writers, debuts with an extreme and extremely good short-story collection, a book of booze, bleakness and bruises. This is a writer to watch.
Join us on Wednesday 20 November at No One Writes to the Colonel for the launch of the Odourless Press fall line-up.
For sale will be chapbooks by Mat Laporte and Phoebe Wang; pamphlets by Baron Jeramy Dodds and Stevie Howell; and a broadside by Spencer Gordon, who will also be selling his recent chapbook, CONSERVATIVE MAJORITY, published by Ottawa’s Apt. 9 Press.
Come out. It’ll be a blast! Facebook event for the Odourless launch here.
The return of the Saturday night Dragnet launch party! Come help us celebrate the launch of Issue 9 with readings by Evan Munday and Catriona Wright (and other contributors TBA), and dancing with DJs Lauren Mitchell, Brass Moustache, and Jenny Treehorn, playing funk, soul, afrobeat, and hip hop.
Issue 9 features writing by Evan Munday, Catriona Wright, Bardia Sinaee, Justin Lawrence Daugherty, Nadia Ragbar, Amanda Leduc, and André Babyn, and illustrations by Emma James.

The Velvet Underground’s 1969 Lineup (John Cale & Nico had left the band):
-Lou Reed — vocals, rhythm and lead guitar
-Sterling Morrison — lead and rhythm guitar, backing vocals
-Doug Yule — bass guitar, organ, backing vocals
-Maureen Tucker — percussion, lead vocals on “After Hours”, & “I’m Sticking with You”
These recordings come from audience tapes recorded by Robert Quine, then a fan of The Velvet Underground. Years later, Quine came to prominence himself as an admired guitarist in Richard Hell & the Voidoids, & eventually got to play guitar with Lou on two Lou Reed albums, “The Blue Mask”, & “Legendary Hearts”, & he toured with Lou as part of his band in the 1980s.
We here at Dragnet are pleased as punch to have our hands on a copy of contributor Mike Blouin’s new book, I Don’t Know How to Behave, and also pleased, maybe not quite as much as punch but maybe as much as a like really refreshing vodka soda, to see that he listed Dragnet in his author bio!
Did you miss the Dragnet Anthology 1 launch? If so, not only did you miss some wonderful performances and an opportunity to purchase books (though you can now order them through our website) but you also missed Illya Klymkiw’s film explaining why Spencer Gordon from The Puritan and Jeremy Hanson-Finger from Dragnet weren’t at the launch party.
