Cat Woman


Well, 2009 has been kind of a rotten year, but I hope everyone is looking forward to a happy holiday season!

I'm afraid I have some unhappy news today -- The Town Drunk will be closing, with no further issues planned at this time. Over the past year, a variety of circumstances have interfered with my work on the magazine, causing many delays. I don't believe this is fair to you, our wonderful authors and readers. Thus, I have decided to relinquish my position as Editor-in-Chief. It pains me to take this step, and I hesitated a long time in doing so.

As Publisher, I will continue to maintain The Town Drunk's website indefinitely, and I will most likely restructure it as an "online anthology." I am open to transferring editorship of the magazine to someone else at a later date, but I don't foresee that happening anytime soon.

I have already contacted the authors whose stories were pending publication. If you were awaiting feedback on a submission, you may consider it released (though it is my intention to e-mail you individually as well).

Please let me know if you have any questions, concerns, etc. I will do my best to answer or address them.

Thank you for all your support!
