‘I stole The Happy Hypocrite’s title.
Welcome to Without Reduction, the twelfth and final issue of The Happy Hypocrite. I also stole the theme of this issue. From a book I saw in a used bookstore in New Haven, propped up beside a copy of HH issue 1. That book was Quantum Theory Without Reduction edited by Marcello Cini and Jean-Marc Lévy-Leblond. I’ve chosen my editorial methodology, Without Reduction, because I’m greedy – this issue has more contributions than ever before. […] Can I say with certainty I now have a stable definition of the term experimental art writing? Well can I? No, I cannot. HH has consistently resisted such a demand to anthologise. HH is a symptom.’
