The intended goal of Nameless is to meld divergent (even challenging) critical perspectives on a variety of subjects -- fiction, music, art, film, social commentary -- and present them with the best content (literary, artistic, and, in the case of the website, multimedia) we can muster. Nameless was conceived from the outset as a thought-provoking biannual print periodical, as well as a year-round online destination for the intellectually adventurous. We strive to achieve this via the alchemy of innovative discourse, high production values, and rigorous editorial standards.
Though the focus will always be on the macabre, weird, uncanny and esoteric, Nameless will also be a bastion for the under-appreciated idea, the unexplored possibility, the poorly understood concept. We are not a home for the pedestrian, the obvious, the common. It is a state of mind as much as anything, and as such is accepting of anyone that is curious, thoughtful and rational.
Nameless Digest is a professional market, biannual (twice yearly), perfect-bound, 6"x9" book/journal of 150-250 color and B&W pages per issue. It is published by Cycatrix Press, a division of JaSunni Productions, LLC, and will be printed in limited quantities in the Spring and Fall of each year. Along with each print issue there will be a near-simultaneous Electronic edition, available in a variety of popular formats (such as for the Nook, iPad, Kindle, PDF, Issuu, and so on). The website magazine aspect will be maintained on a mostly regular basis with exclusive content, and will offer the TOC, cover, and short excerpts of upcoming issues, as well as current articles that may or may not be in the print version. Online, there will be multimedia offerings from time to time as well.
The material in Nameless is wide-ranging and presented in an eye-catching manner. Each issue will vary as to theme, but will provide fascinating commentary on topical subjects, politics, science, criticism, philosophy, and reviews of current media. Nameless will engage subscribers/participants with fiction/poetry, interviews, memoirs, essays, multimedia (website only), artwork, reviews and more.

That's right: *NameL3ss* is IMPRESSIVE!!!
I was a bit ambivalent about... no, make that more like actually hesitant... to read this maiden run edition, the virginal first time issue of *NameL3ss* Digest. I wasn't sure what to think or expect. Ooooo... but this sweet, sick jewel doesn't disappoint at all!
At last I have found what I have been searching for, and perhaps you may as well: This digest is filled with intelligent and thought provoking perspectives on the masters and newcomers. I'm impressed and that says a lot because this is not the usual genre for me to read.
Allow me to explain: it's a digest in a book format and has an entirely different look and feel to it, even down to the paper used to print it with. It's different, and because it's different it attracts you, reels you in, from the odd-looking macabre artwork on the front cover straight through to the back cover. Nestled snugly in between the covers is a plethora of articles, reviews, interviews, film critiques, poetry, short stories, colorful ads and pictures, even artwork. All of this in a sensationally sweet 162 pages.
*NameL3ss* is edited by no other than the multi-talented and up and coming Jason V Brock! Jason is not only a very talented writer, but also an artist and musician. Oh, and filmmaker too! Prior to picking up this first edition of *NameL3ss* I had no idea who 'Jason Brock' was. Allow me to introduce you to Jason via his website: [http://www.JaSunni.com]
*NameL3ss* is about names, some new and some old; Brock, Lovecraft, Ray Bradbury, Kenneth Russell, Edgar Allen Poe, Lee-Anne Raymond, James Goho, Gene O'Neill, Wade German, and many more!
Jason's heartfelt and poignant editorial homage to the late Ray Bradbury hits home, especially if you have someone in your life that made a positive difference! The accompanying pictures said a thousand words! Shade Rupe and Ross Freedman both share their memories and the life of the late film director Kenneth Alfred Henry Russell. Thank you Shade for sharing the most memorable year near the end of his life and warm gesture to honor the late brilliant film director! For you youngsters, Russell directed, TOMMY (the rock opera from the mid `70s) and a few years later, ALTERED STATES. He is best known however for his controversial film, THE DEVILS.
*NameL3ss* will raise many questions in your mind about human consciousness. I found the articles and reviews to encompass a wide vein of intelligence and to create questions in one's mind about society, history, politics and their respective influences on art, literature, music, and cinema.
The stories are imaginative and well-crafted. Lee-Ann Raymond's artwork is very thought provoking. It is however James Goho who stands out in my mind. He matter-of-factly raised the question of "The Outsider" being a "signpost towards the new gothic horror." Now that's something for Poe and Lovecraft fans to mull over! From this issues definite must read, "Lovecraft's 'The Outsider': A Sequel to Poe's 'The Fall Of The House Of Usher'?"
*NameL3ss* is published in limited quantities so you better snag it soon before it becomes a collector's item. It's that good! I rate this 5 stars!
