Adam McGovern, shown at work here, will continue to deliver over-the-transom, on-tangent essays, dialogues and subjective scholarship via his monthly-ish series OFF-TOPIC.


We will continue to serialize HADRON AGE SF — a weekly series via which Josh Glenn plans to identify his favorite 75 sf adventures (novels, comics, YA novels) published between 2004 and 2023. The complete list in progress is here.

The series’ 2Q2022 installments will likely include: Lauren Beukes’s MOXYLAND | Janelle Monáe’s THE ARCHANDROID | Daniel Clowes’ THE DEATH-RAY | Jeff VanderMeer’s ANNIHILATION | William Gibson’s THE PERIPHERAL | N.K. Jemisin’s FIFTH SEASON | Kim Stanley Robinson’s AURORA | Madeline Ashby’s COMPANY TOWN | Lydia Millet’s A CHILDREN’S BIBLE | Octavia E. Butler’s FLEDGLING | Gordon Dahlquist’s THE DIFFERENT GIRL.


Matthew Battles, shown at work here, may continue to produce the series BESTIARY, which offers idiosyncratic investigations into how animals show up in human culture. He’s recently started a new job, which has treed him for the moment….


Peggy Nelson, shown at work here, may continue to investigate art and the virtual life through her two irregular series EYE CANDY and SIMULACRA. She has been busy with other projects since November, so we’ll see….


In May MIT Press’s RADIUM AGE series (edited by HILOBROW’s Josh Glenn) will publish E.V. Odle’s The Clockwork Man (1923, with new introduction by Annalee Newitz) and H.G. Wells’ The World Set Free (1914, with new introduction by Sarah Cole).

Here at HILOBROW, meanwhile, during 2Q2022 we will continue to serialize Radium Age novels and stories. Coming up:

  • Valery Bryusov’s story “The Republic of the Southern Cross” (1907)
  • Algernon Blackwood’s story “A Victim of Higher Space” (1908)
  • We’ll continue to serialize J.D. Beresford’s novel The Hampdenshire Wonder (1911)

Earlier this month, we kicked off a series by HILOBROW friend Mark Ramos Nishita, aka Money Mark. ISOLATION JAMS features a curated selection of “little vignettes of potent sound, sound poems, noise or melody” that Mark posted to Instagram in 2020 — to help us through the first COVID lockdown. The series will continue into 2Q2022.


In January, HILOBROW’s series BESTIARY published a four-part installment — on the subject of 20th-century anthropomorphized pop-culture frogs. During 2Q2022, we’ll publish three offshoots: HYPNOTIC FROGS | FRIGHTENING FROGS | MUSICAL FROGS.


& other curated series TBA!


On to 2Q2022…
