EARLY PRAISE FOR [SIC]
“This book is all about breaking down the boundaries that we’ve inheritedfrom the ruins of the 20th century. There is no way that you can put this book down and not feel how much this century is different from the last. It’s kind of 
like a roller coaster without handbrakes. You wait for the nale, but realize it’s
all in the mix. Highly recommended.”
 —Paul D. Miller aka DJ Spooky, musician, conceptual artist,
and author of 
Book of Ice 
“[SIC] elegantly draws our attention to a fortuitous coincidence: that 1923,a crucial year for U.S. copyright law, happens to be one of the high pointsof Anglo-American modernism, a movement which, according to oneunderstanding, profoundly transformed literature through radical practices of collage, appropriation, and textual sampling. By applying the bold techniqueof what Borges’ narrator of ‘Pierre Menard’ calls ‘erroneous attribution’ to a
range of varied texts—from The Canterbury Tales to a transcription of the
moon landing, from Ulysses to the Emergency Broadcast Test—Schneiderman
has made a fascinating contribution to this tradition and has created a rich and
strange mosaic that delightfully raises important questions about authorship,cultural literacy, intellectual property, canonicity, and what constitutes “theliterary” in the twenty-rst century. —Michael Leong, author of 
The Philosophy of Decomposition/Re-Composition as Explanation: A Poe and Stein Mash-Up
“A masterpiece. A cry from hell, a brutal, terrifying, and savagely funny book that swings between uncontrolled hallucination and erce, exact satire. Anabsolutely devastating ridicule of all that is false, primitive, and vicious in
current American life. Schneiderman is the only American novelist living today who may conceivably be possessed by genius.”
 —Marcus Boon, author of 
In Praise of Copying 
“[SIC] calls to mind projects by diverse artists from Steve Tomasula and Flann
O’Brien to Buzz Spector and Chris Marker to the video for Howard Jones’s1989 ick-hit, ‘Everlasting Love.’ But amid this litter of auteurs and artistes, I
found my attention was mostly pinned to that white glowing hominid. This
gure is a somatized cursor, the embodiment of the Internet’s most dynamic worker, the ‘chooser,’ whether that chooser be a human consumer or thealgorithmic plectrum of the search engine itself. This gure, whose relentless whiteness does not seem incidental, embodies the digital verb ‘click’ in itsimperative form. For this reason, [SIC] is more of an “artist’s book” than anovel—the text is there as a screen for this cursor-gure to come into visibility.Since Conceptualists claim they aren’t looking for readers, what is the blurber’s
role in the Conceptualist transaction? Is it just to provide keywords for Search
Engine Optimization? In that case, three words: Dan Brown’s
Inferno
.”
