Hot damnit. Makeout Creek Three is at the printer's. Finally. Honestly and truly. We'll sure as hell tell you when it's done.
In the meantime, here are jpegs of the TOC, featuring art by R. Nicholas Kuszyk; page 2, with art by Rob Lee and a poem by Brian Henry; and the rear cover, with photos from George Allen.
In addition to the above, Issue Three features a cover by Ryan McLennan (see the top of this post) and new work from M. C. Boyes, Jeff Lodge, Liz Mandrell, Michael Mehen, Mike Powell, Pir Rothenberg and many others! Just check that TOC!
Trust us, we'll keep you updated.
So, hey, now might also be a good time to mention that, in addition to our third issue, Makeout Creek will be bringing you two extra special treats later this summer:
1. Jammer Slammer, a "short graphic socio-spiritual text" from the aforementioned R. Nicholas Kuszyk, which will be the debut volume in our new line of Makeout Creek Books.
2. The premiere of our first online feature, for now tentatively titled (with a title that says it all): "Muki Veseljak Sasses the Balkans -- and Dissolves! A Weekly Travelogue on Diverse Topics Concerning a Single Place."
So keep your eyes peeled. Now that we're done with the magazine-making, there will be a lot more time to pester with you with blog entries about every little thing that happens to the MC.
