about

Since 2010, Unwinnable has been a showcase for weird, experimental, poignant, funny and iconoclastic stories. We're devoted to examining the intersection of the culture we love and the lives we lead. Unwinnable wants to bring you the best in pop-culture criticism, creative non-fiction, and the occasional serialized fiction once a week in a beautiful digital magazine. Unwinnable is life with culture.

Issue Six starts with Ian Gonzales' story, The Prisoner, followed by Jill Scharr’s Transistor, both of which examine to space between the individual and the collective. Both philosophies can be taken to extremes, of course. You need to look no farther than the ugliness of Ayn Rand for an example of individualism gone too far. On the other side, it is a kind of collectivism that spawned the disgusting Dragon Age modders that are the subject of Joe DeMartino’s story. Hints to the secret balance may lie in Jeremy Voss’ piece, in which he ponders collections. Curating a collection, be it of media (in Jeremy’s case) or of artefacts, is an exercise in personal taste. However, for a collection to have any value, it must be presented in a way that is accessible to anyone, like when a librarian files books according to call numbers. Organization, and, for that matter, language itself, is a matter of consensus.

No matter what your taste, Unwinnable Weekly has you covered, so make sure to check out our selection of back issues today!
