Significant Objects — Volume 2

Significant Object’s second “volume” of stories — by Kathryn Davis, Tom McCarthy, Amy Fusselman, Neil LaBute, Gary Panter, and 45 others — ran from December 2009 through February 2010. SO v2 was a fund-raising effort; it was also a lit journal secretly published on eBay. It raised over $2000 for the tutoring program 826 National.
