Fiction. A mockumental work of the imagination by J. A. Ellis, resident of Chicagary, Usonia. He is another Billy Pilgrim lost in a time of fascist violence and succession. Tar Spackled Banner is a 21st-century time-traveler's autobiography that recalls Fyodor Dostoevsky's anti-heroic protagonist's raves in Notes from Underground and the curious esoterics of Thomas Carlyle's Sartor Resartus. Ellis takes the reader on a scripto-visual journey into our near future where the Goosestep is even more popular than the Soupyi Shuffle.

James Hugunin teaches the History of Photography and Contemporary Theory at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. In 1983 he won the first Reva and David Logan Award for Distinguished New Writing in Photography. He is the author of A Survey of the Representation of Prisoners in the United States: Discipline and Photograph, The Prison Experience (1999), and Writing Pictures, Case Studies in Photographic Criticism, 1983- 2012 (2013), New Art Examiner Reviews: 1986-93, and Afterimage: Critical Essays on Photography from the Journal Afterimage, 1977-88, all collections of his critical writings.

His current novel-in-progress, Finding Mememo,(forthcoming in 2017) plays with the genres of academic writing, detective, and sci-fi as it critiques the suffusion of neoliberal economics into academia. In 2016, Hugunin was elected a member of Chicago's Society of Midland Authors.
