Ever since John Rattray became a regular contributor to the magazine a few months back, I've had the pleasure of being the first person in the office to read his writing when it comes in, and I can honestly say I look forward to it every time. He's done some pretty incredible pieces over the last few issues, like a comprehensive Helter Shelter on The Skate House and an amazing short story titled Paranoia in Portland as well as some really great book reviews for Inspiration Bound.
To celebrate John's mind and opinions, we're dedicating an entire column to him each issue called THE PREDATORY WORD. Following in the footsteps of his highly popular blog (The Predatory Bird), and starting in our new issue (10.2) with a review of John "The Man" Reeves' book Open Through the Mindflow, Rattray will be sure to keep you on that hot literary tip.
Look out for THE PREDATORY WORD in Color Volume 10, Issue 2 (now shipping!) and in the meantime, check out this awesome short film John shot for his blog.
