Editor’s Note: “O” by Anne Marie Rooney is the winner of ABJECTIVE’s A Contest. Entrants were asked to submit text that contained no more than one character. A Contest was a call for artists and writers to tap into the creative potential hidden within the communicative properties of language at a fundamental level.
ABJECTIVE is edited by Darby Larson.
OZ was first published as a satirical humour magazine between 1963 and 1969 in Sydney, Australia and, in its second and more famous incarnation, became a “psychedelic hippy” magazine from 1967 to 1973 in London. Strongly identified as part of the underground press, it was the subject of two celebrated obscenity trials, one in Australia in 1964 and the other in the UK in 1971.
