Fleeting, ephemeral, nondigital, and nonhierarchical, Animal Shelter is, as Alex Gartenfeld wrote in Interview, “a loose collection of texts, sequenced like a mixtape,” focused yet eclectic. Issue 4 is coedited by Hedi El Kholti and Robert Dewhurst. This and past issues are available at and from select booksellers.
