Help McSweeney's For Good Karma and Neat Things
Dave Eggers’ wonderful and brilliant publishing house, McSweeney’s, is in desperate need of saving by every fan who’s read one of his books or a “short imagined monologue” and thought, “You know, this is the kind of creative endeavor I could financially get behind, in theory.”
In a desperate attempt to survive last year’s bankruptcy, McSweeney’s is holding an inventory sell-off (with enormous subscription and back-issue discounts) and rare-item auction featuring great stuff donated by the likes of past-contributors Chris Ware and Nick Hornby. They’re even auctioning Eggers’ painting of George W. Bush as a double-amputee. It’s a serious crisis.
McSweeney’s regular publications include Timothy McSweeney’s Quarterly Concern, The Believer, McSweeney’s Internet Tendency and a new quarterly DVD magazine called Wholphin. They’re great at finding original literary voices and more than sufficient at publishing works by people everyone already knows is cool (like Michael Chabon).
