TOP STORIES (1978-1991) was a prose periodical specializing in writing by women authors. Created and edited by Anne Turyn, the chapbook series features experimental fiction, art, photography, and graphics, and has forecast some of the most progressive writers and artists of the ‘80s and ‘90s. A few particularly notable issues include Cookie Mueller’s How to Get Rid of Pimples, Lynne Tillman and Jane Dickson’s Living with Contradictions, and Kathy Acker’s New York in 1979.

City Lights writes: “Urban, feminist, funny, and dramatic-these original writers are underhandedly shaping American culture with wit, and with a vengeance.”
