Brittany Shoot, my managing editor, and I consider The Magazine
a very successful experiment. As noted in our Kickstarter
campaign, we’ve paid out over half a million dollars to
contributors of all sorts over two years, and we have tens of
thousands left to pay out this year. We’ve been profitable
from the start, but ever less so. I’m a working stiff, and I
can’t ride this all the way down. We’re going out happy with
our work, delighted with our audience, and so ecstatic to have
worked with so many terrific writers, artists, photographers,
editors, designers, and others.
So, friends, this is the end. We will publish the next five
issues, through Issue #58, and then say goodbye for now.
It was a good ride.
