Jersey Devil Press turns four

jpdcoveroct2013It’s that time again, gang: Jersey Devil Press’s latest issue is out! And it’s our fourth anniversary!

Whether it’s two best friends slowly poisoning themselves to death, or a blind painter taking instructions from an imaginary dragon, or a stranded cyclist drinking water with a coffin-dweller and jamming to interstellar music, or a family haunted (literally) by a fatal mistake, we’ve got everything you could ever want.

We even have giant kewpie dolls dissected and exposed, organs and bones and all, courtesy of our cover artist, toymaker and genius sculptor Jason Freeny.

The one thing we don’t have is Mike Sweeney: our content editor is stepping down after an epic two years at the helm. Seriously, look over the work he’s curated during his stint at JDP — he’s more than earned his retirement. I’m speaking seriously and personally here — Mike’s been a hell of guy to work with. We’re all going to miss him something fierce.

But hey, we have good news, too, because our hard-working colleague, Laura Garrison, is stepping up to fill Mike’s shoes! They’re big shoes, but we already know Laura will wear them well — she was the editor behind our celebrated first-ever poetry issue a couple of months back.

In the meantime, check out Mike’s last issue, and let’s all send him our love. No, strike that — let’s all lift his shirt and give him raspberries. This is Jersey Devil Press, after all!
