Kugelmass = On Hold

Kugelmass is currently on hiatus from issue production, as it comes to terms with a few ominous realities. In the meantime, we'll continue to publish some work on the web, just to, you know, keep it real.

Kugelmass submissions on hold

It's gotten to that point again, the point where the number of unread submissions demanding attention has become overwhelming for this small and humble staff. So we're going to stop the bleeding and shut down submissions until Fall. We WILL still accept reviews and visuals. Let us know if you find any of this completely unacceptable.

Kugelmass looking for reviews to publish

Kugelmass is looking for essays/reviews to publish online that examine and reflect on humor in our culture. We are looking for reviews of intentionally funny things-stories, characters, movies, shows, etc.- not reviews of non-humorous things written to be funny. In fact, don't even try to be funny for once.

Issue 3 decends gently from heaven

In our third installment, we promise no fewer than 26 severe laughs. We promise weeping and heartache and a hint of shame. We promise to offend you. We promise Big Mac coupons if you read every word. We promise that you'll now go by "Hankey." Oh yeah, and we now have poetry. Read excerpts and order here

Kugelmass goes digital (but can't quit print)

We've been hounded since Day 1 to produce a digital version of your most beloved literary humor publication and it only took four issues to do it. All we're asking for it is $5, which basically means not Upsizing your Value Meal, what, three times?

What you'll find in Issue 4:
  • Essays by Charlie Geer, Tracy Golden, Daniel Asa Rose
  • Stories by Jenny Allen, Daniel Brauer, John Henry Fleming, Josh Logue, Andrew Nicholls, Joe Plicka, Ryan Shoemaker, George Singleton and Lisa Wilde
  • Poetry by Laura Ramos and David Galef
  • Comics by Pat McKay and photos by Pete Duval
  • Editor David Holub discusses two things this issue has in common: Digital publishing and Religion

If print is still your thing, which is cool with us, order that at the Issue 4 page or:

Print orders available to ship Nov. 29
