Let’s just hope the story is good

Shelley Jackson’s skin project — for which volunteers agree to have one word of a 2095-word short story tattooed on their bodies — continues to generate press. Jackson has announced her intentions to provide the full text only to participants. I ridiculed this project last fall, before it got started, but now that I’ve seen some photographs I can’t figure out what my problem was. Anyhow, if you’re interested, you can volunteer here.
