McSweeney's San Francisco Panorama

After a several month delay, Porter Square Books now has copies of McSweeney's Issue #33, San Francisco Panorama. McSweeney's has always tested the limits of what it means to publish a "magazine," but they've managed to outdo themselves with this issue. San Francisco Panorama is formatted like a Sunday edition newspaper, complete with a full color paper, a magazine, and a book section.

The format itself is interesting enough to check out, but they've also gathered an amazing list of contributors; Michael Chabon, Stephen King, Nicholson Baker, William T. Vollmann, Chimamanda Adichie, Art Spiegelman, Chris Ware, Jessica Abel, Alison Bechdel, John Ashberry, and Junot Diaz to name a few. Originally priced at $24 (which is how its listed on our website) the issue is now only $16. Get here quickly if you're interested. Given how long we had to wait the first time around, there's no telling when we'll get more when we've run out.
