Upon its debut in June 2012, Spook was hailed by the Los Angeles Review of Books as "an invaluable contribution to the cultural conversation." Published biannually, the magazine operates as a space for alternative voices and remixes traditional formats, a sort of literary arts mixtape (think The Paris Review meets FADER, or better yet: a Lucille Clifton verse set to a Madlib beat). Spook is the essence, the pulse—it is a brilliant dissonance of ideas and art that contain no bound, an ever-evolving dialog between past and present.
