A Very Good copy. 88pp. with orange printed cardstock covers; illustrated throughout with b/w photos and illustrations. A local literary magazine, IN.S.OMNIA was a computer bulletin board/forum for interactive literature, a mode of self-publishinng, allowing users to send texts via computer. This project grew out of the 1983 "Novel Out of Seattle Project" by Invisible Seattle Projects: In August of 1983 the Invisibles, dressed as “literary workers” in white coveralls and hard hats with a question mark, used interviews, questionnaires, and repurposed arcade games to coax the city into writing its own great civic novel. The novel was publicly compiled during the.Bumbershoot Arts Festival in a theatrical installation using the “cyberno-ziggurat” Scheherezade II: "first of a new generation of literary computers." This is the first and only issue.
