Broken Mirrors Press

Mon 3 Aug 2009 - Filed under: smallbeer | 2 Comments

In the 1990s the world was blessed by the appearance of a damn fine magazine named Crank! Due to the usual reasons — ruinous distribution, incredibly high editorial and production standards, a serious lack of personal inherited wealth — it all came to an end with issue no. 8.

We managed to get our hands on some back issues. No overcharging, no handwringing, nothing but a damn fine read. $5 a pop (including shipping), any two for $9, any three for $13 (lucky for some…), etc., etc. If we can get the missing issues (No. 5 is sold out), we’ll put them up here, too. We’ll occasionally bring them to sell at book fairs or conventions, if that’s your thing.

Broken Mirrors Press also published a number of books. Again, these are the good stuff, high standards, good design, you’ll be more than happy. We think. We expect. We kind of hope. Anyway, browse away:

    Are the back issues of Crank still available? I can’t seem to add them to the cart, and I know this page is old – but it’s still up. I was a subscriber to Crank, and at one time had all 8 issues. Unfortunately, I loaned Issues 1 and 2 to a friend, and never got them back. So it would be nice to have them.

    Clint, they are available. I”ll look at the pages but due to other commitments it may be Wednesday before it is fixed. The prices still apply if you want to just use Paypal (or a check) to directly Send Money.
