It's all about games, and while not the massive tome we'd hoped for (more a modest pastime), it still includes:
—A brief essay from Languagehat on getting conned
—A sweet stencil from Mike Mongo to spread throughout the world
—A new card game from Troll
—An article on highfalutin' literary palindromes from Mark Saltveit
—A crossword from Woodblock100
—An article on the Vic Viper from Jharris
—A hidden picture of Brandon's wang
I'd like to thank all of our contributors again for helping make this another good issue, and apologize for being late with it. If we had subscribers or advertisers, they'd be angry.
NEXT ISSUE: DEATH DEATH DEATH
We've bumped that deadline back to October 15, which means we'll get it out before Halloween (so if you've gotten a recent message from me about September 20, and you're sweating, you can breathe a little easier).
We'd like: Eulogies, remembrances, poems, ghost stories, paper masks, murders, and the mix of serious and silly that y'all do so well. Please let me know what you're doing, and get it in early if you at all can, because then I can get it out to copy eds (who are, as always, awesome). SUBMIT HERE
One of the ways that we decide on future themes (November will likely be SEX) is by perusing the hopper to see what people have turned in. But our hopper's running pretty dry right now, so if you have things that you have written that do not fit any of our announced themes PLEASE SUBMIT THEM
. We need them! It will make us happy! SUBMIT
Also, please feel free to send us letters and comments. Or pictures of places you've stenciled Mongo's picture, because that'd be awesome too.
