Here’s all the news since I started the Andrew Gallix site in February 2007:
22 October 2007
Lee Rourke: “My collection of short stories would not be the book it ostensibly is without the editorial guidance and expertise of Andrew Gallix who painstakingly edited the manuscript”.
I’m quoted in an article (“Tell It Like It Is: The Offbeats” by Sarah Fakray) in the November issue of Dazed & Confused:
“…3:AM Magazine‘s Andrew Gallix has just finished putting together an anthology of key Offbeat writers’ short stories. ‘The movement is about to go overground,’ he explains. ‘The literary equivalent of the 1976 punk festival at the 100 Club.'”
Am mentioned by Lee Rourke in an interview with Susan Tomaselli published in dogmatika:
“I sent Heidi the manuscript for Everyday some time ago now. I didn’t think she’d like it at first. But she did. She passed it straight away to Andrew Gallix to edit and write the introduction. …The ‘Offbeat Generation’ tag was invented by Andrew Gallix, Editor-in-Chief at 3:AM Magazine and author of many surreal, tightly composed short stories. …Like many of the writers who have been labelled, or label themselves ‘Offbeat’, such as: Tom McCarthy, Stewart Home, Andrew Gallix, Travis Jeppesen, Heidi James, Matthew Coleman and Tony O’Neill et al., I very much stand alone.”

A segment of RTE’s arts show The View was devoted today to Tom McCarthy’s Remainder. The author read from his novel which was then discussed by the members of a panel. The discussion began with Bisi Adigun quoting from my review of the book for 3:AM (which featured on the jacket of the hardback American edition): “I would start by quoting what 3:AM Magazine says. It says, it is ‘a masterpiece waiting to happen — again and again and again.'”
