Hurricane Sandy vs. the big bad Jersey Devil

‎Jersey Devil Press, y’all. Superstorm Sandy ran over us like a goddamn steamroller, and you know what? Screw that storm! We’re still here!

Seriously, our content editor, Mike Sweeney, lives in Jersey and rode that bitch out. He spent five days without electricity, surrounded by wreckage, and what did he do with the little power and wifi he was able to pilfer from the local drugstore when the wind died down? He got online and got to work making sure you all have fiction to read! Like a boss.

So honor that dude by reading the issue.

Also, our cover art? That’s a real house, 150 years old, as it looks right now, after Sandy knocked it around. The people who lived there have had the shit kicked out of them and they’re trying to rebuild. I spoke to the guy on the phone — he sounds exhausted, but he was nice enough to let us put his house on our cover. So to thank him for that, consider following the link on the cover art page and donating to his rebuilding fund. (Also, huge thanks to Help From Hurricane Sandy Union Beach NJ and Kelly Ebner Maher for helping me track down the guy who lives in that house.)

Or, at the very least, give to the Red Cross and help all of the East Coasters who got hit by this storm.
