Locus Solus was an American journal of experimental poetry and prose that published four issues in 1961 and 1962, one a double issue. The magazine was edited by the poets John Ashbery, Kenneth Koch, and James Schuyler,[1][2] all of whom contributed to its four issues. The content was completely in English but the journal was published in France (in Lans-en-Vercors)[2] by Harry Mathews.[1]

The journal was named after the novel Locus Solus by Raymond Roussel.[1][3]
