May, We Present

jdp cover 2017 may

“May” suggests potential paths, offering not the certainty of resolution but the allure of possibilities.

In this spirit, our eighty-ninth issue grapples with some tough questions. What have you lost? What if the circus didn’t have to die? What was Mary Jane Kelly like before she met Jack the Ripper? What’s in the box? Why aren’t you a spoon? Does this month’s cover art include an ouroboros?

Scry it online or summon the .pdf.
