Stephen van Dyck ’09 updates us: “My first book People I’ve Met From the Internet is being published by Ricochet Editions. The book is a queer reimagining of the coming-of-age narrative set at the dawn of the Internet era in the form of an annotated database. It has received praise from Chris Kraus, Miranda July, John Rechy, and D. A. Powell. I first started working on People I’ve Met From the Internet at CalArts with Matias Viegener as my mentor, and CalArts is the setting for much of the book. It can be purchased on Amazon, Small Press Distribution, or at a bookstore near you.”
