The Nth Position

Strangeness, politics, and poetry — the ezine,
nthposition.com — darkly intellectual expression from the
left featuring fiction, reviews, interviews, and more than a few
bizarre moments of eccentricity. The nth position, name
chosen because all the ‘deeply meaningful names were taken’ is an
independent — or, ‘impoverished’ as they put it — web site that
is dedicated to ‘a strong preference for good, interesting
writing.’ Thus, writing that is political, somber, intelligent and
deals with pressing issues. While most of the site is politically
oriented, such as Gwendolyn Albert’s poem, ‘Ari Fleischer the
President’s spokesman says all Americans need to watch what they
say,’ the site also features some interesting and unusual,
non-political viewpoints such as an interview with Paul Davies, a
physicist, who discusses ‘wormholes, time travel and the dawn of
civilization.’ The site’s creators have received praise for a free
book downloadable from the site, 100 Poets Against the
War
, released in January. For activists, leftists, and
intellectual artists alike, the nth position is a
rewarding resource.
