New in our Collectible catalogue: LONG SHOT magazine
Long Shot was a leftwing magazine of the arts published first from New Brunswick and then from Hoboken by poet and teacher Danny Shot. It ran for 27 issues from 1982 to 2004 and took inspiration from sources as varied as The Beat Generation, Punk and the political commitment of Italian film director Lina Wertmüller. Danny Shot and co-founder Eliot Katz published the first issue of Long Shot in early 1982 with the help of Allen Ginsberg, whom Katz had met at Naropa University. Among the regular contributors to the magazine were Andy Clausen, Robert Press, Allen Ginsberg, Amiri Baraka and Shot and Katz themselves. During its 22-year existence Long Shot managed to bring together poets such as Ray Bremser, Janine Pommy Vega, Ed Sanders, Jack Micheline, Tuli Kupferberg, Ted Berrigan and artists and musicians such as Larry Rivers, Cindy Sherman, Archie Shepp, Leon Golub and Lou Reed.
