Holly Jolly Brass Ring, ExCirculation Mgr Jambo's Potential Gift to You...
- Oh, ho, the mistle alREADY?
Yes, hard on the heels of the first East Village Inky ReSubscription
Roundup comes the light-filled annual stress bomb known collectively as
But all is not lost! Our angelic Ex-Circulation Manager Jambo has an
offer that could potentially sweeten your holiday burden.
Every East Village Inky gift subscription you purchase between now and
New Year's Eve equals one chance to win an 8 issue grab bag of long out
of print issues for your own dayumnself! Hand photocopied from the
masters by the mistress! Mostly hand-collated, too, I might add. (Didn't
figure out how to lay em out properly til issue 16, a mere 5 issues
before our Bob Cratchitt-style subscriber ledgers were retired in favor
of something more electronic.)
To reiterate. One gift subscription = 1 chance to win, 2 gift
subscriptions = 2 chances to win, and so on, and so on. However many fit

will be announced on my website, and every other social kingdom to which

receiving an envelope that's not a bill on a quarterly basis.
Compliments of you! The lucky recipients' first issues will have be
accompanied by a certificate proclaiming your largesse!
But what if you're a heel dragger? We've STILL got your covered! Not yet
because you're not the only heel dragger in this relationship, but very
very soon I will be drawing a little gift certificate that I can email
as a print-outable, open-uppable PDF to all those who wait until
Xmakwaanzakuh Eve to get their shopping done.
Still, why wait? The post office needs every stamp we can throw at them,
and wouldn't it be nice to have the actual zine to stuff in their
stockings? (Substantial, yet still slim enough to tuck in their
perhaps we should refrain) I vote we conclude this dirty business, tie
it up with a bow and move on to the nog!
Question: is a book by Ayun Halliday, ordered from Ayun Halliday a
contest-worthy substitute for a gift subscription? What do you think?
With luck, you may just grab that aforementioned brass ring, as featured
in the first half of the official East Village Inky Age Progression
