BI-MONTHLY RISOZINE SERIES EDITED BY IAN HARKER
We seem to have a habit of posting sneak peeks of this book right after deadly disasters. We promise it’s not on purpose.
Given the subject matter, calling our upcoming paperback collection of Charles Forsman’s The End of the Fucking World ”cute” seems a little weird, but it’s partly the tension between wanting to put it in your pocket and being gripped by the harrowing story that gives the work its power.
This highly-anticipated book drops in July (after debuting at CAKE in Chicago in mid-June). We have an excerpt of the first two chapters for you to read right here, and stay tuned for details of an exclusive signed Risograph print you’ll be able to get as a pre-order bonus!
