‘Fight Club’ Author Chuck Palahniuk to Release New Book

Palahniuk brings students’ gritty work to print in a new anthology
(PR NewsChannel) / April 3, 2013 / CHICAGO 

Medallion PressMedallion Press, a division of Medallion Media Group, Inc., has acquired a new anthology of transgressive fiction edited by Chuck Palahniuk, Richard Thomas, and Dennis Widmyer titled “Burnt Tongues: Stories from ChuckPalahniuk.net.” Palahniuk is best known for the powerfully subversive novel “Fight Club” (Oct. 2005, WW Norton), which was made into a major motion picture in 1999 starring Brad Pitt and Edward Norton.

Throughout his career, Palahniuk has made it his mission to bring people back to books. In the past few years, he has taken this mission one step further by instructing people to write books. The anthology, “Burnt Tongues: Stories from Chuck Palahniuk.net”, features transgressive short stories from twenty of Palahniuk’s online writing workshop students, whose origins span the United States and the UK. The stories they write are as eclectic as the authors themselves, with titles like “Zombie Whorehouse,” “Mind and Soldier,” and “Engines, O-Rings, and Astronauts,” but each has the common thread of a minimal writing style like Palahniuk’s.

Fellow anthologists Dennis Widmyer and Richard Thomas joined Chuck in critiquing, selecting, and editing “Burnt Tongues: Stories from Chuck Palahniuk.net.” Writer and film director Dennis Widmyer is the webmaster and creator of ChuckPalahniuk.net: A Writer’s Cult. Author and editor Richard Thomas’s “Storyville” column at “LitReactor” has gathered an interactive and passionate following.

“Burnt Tongues: Stories from Chuck Palahniuk.net” is scheduled to release in August 2014.
