JPPN 2 is in its final stages of preparation. Should be headed to the printer pretty soon. We here at Mothaxle appreciate the patience of our contributors.

My guys with the baseball bats are pretty disappointed. They've always wanted to see the Northeast.

A ToC? Yeah, sure. We can do that. Why the heck not?

The long-awaited, much-delayed, repeatedly given-up-for-dead JPPN2 is ready!

If you are a contributor who has changed addresses since we first accepted your story, email your new address to jppn at mothaxle dot com.

If you want to buy a copy, also let us know at that address.

Alex, I had sent you my new address when I moved last year. Do I still need to contact JPPN as well -- or did you forward the info?

Alex, did the contributor copies actually go out? Since I still haven't received mine, I'm wondering if it was sent to the old address, which might no longer be forwarding.

Thanks!

No problem! I just wanted to make sure that the current owners of my former house aren't sitting around reading an issue of JPPN.

Well...

Maybe it's the newest marketing trick. I could give Alex and Thom a wrong address, and then see if the addressees are willing to part with JPPN 2.

Or even:

The semi-randomly distributed contributor's copy.

Dear JPPN contributor,

We have decided to send your contributor's copy to a random address with the same zipcode. Retrieving your JPPN should now give you that nerve-wrecking, spine-chilling, truly pulse-pounding experience.
If your desperate trek from house to house generates enough interest and subsequent sales of the JPPN 2, we might send you a second contributor's copy.
By then, our marketing department will have decided on a new method...

AN UPDATE FROM THE JPPN OFFICES:

The Journal of Pulse-Pounding Narratives #2 is available. Contributor copies are in the mail, so our authors can expect to see them soon; a bit longer for our non-US authors. Any delays from this point on can be blamed on the postal service rather than us. Which is a nice change.

Ordering info is available at www.mothaxle.com

I'm afraid that there's a typo on the JPPN site. The page reads that this is the "final issue" of the magazine. I'm sure what you meant to write was that it is the "most recent issue" of the magazine. Someone's fingers must have slipped while putting together the html.

Please correct that quickly, guys!

Indeed! I second Scott, and to paraphrase the editorial: "This way lies madness!"

The depraved masses cry out for more! Will a second JPPN be sufficient to satiate their pulpy appetites, or must the title (wherever it goes) be resurrected?

(JPPN 2 arrived in Holland today! So far, I've been mesmerised by megalomaniacal metafiction, truly twisted moustachios, an experimental dystopia brought to you by the colour orange, shape-shifting aliens with no sense of dress, humour, or timing, and London criminals that take the hand that takes. Looking forward very much to the rest!)

(BTW: loved the electric ant!)

If JPPN has to change, perhaps at least moving to an annual anthology format? That way readers would at least get the PPN, if not the J, which would be something. Not sure that APPN is really the acronym you'd want though.

Got my copy. If it wasn't for stupid grad school I could dive into and read it. Instead I can only flip through it and be blown away by Mr. Davidsohn's design work.

My story from JPPN 2, "Lachrymose and the Golden Egg", has been recorded and released into the wild by the podcast show Escape Pod. The recording's great, and they give a shout out to JPPN in the intro.

Cool, Tim. Everybody go listen!

We're getting some review copies out, in a typically JPPNish belated fashion, so there should be more news to report here sometime soon...

From some very reliable sources I hear that three readings have been done at Interaction from the JPPN 2: one by your humble reporter, one by Scott Edelman, and one by Jeffrey Ford.

It was the reading by Jeffrey Ford that had readers scrambling to a certain dealer's table that was selling JPPN 2 copies underhandedly. Sales unfortunately had to stop, after two copies, as the proprietor refused to let go of his contributor's copy, the last one he had left...

(Combined with the fact that this would have put him in yet another higher tax bracket...)

The remaining crowd cried in despair: "Resurrect the JPPN!"

Yeah, Jeff Ford's story in that issue was fucking awesome. My favorite Jeff Ford story to date, actually. I reviewed it here
