Java Snob Review Final Issue

Java Snob Review
Final Issue of Java Snob Review, 1997

We finally called it quits with this poetry magazine experiment me and my sister were publishing for a spell in ’96 and ’97. For our final issue, I decided to draw the artwork for the cover, a simple scratchboard illustration of a coffee cup (a further bit of nepotism, we included a short story by our brother in the previous issue). A shame we never quite got around to publishing any of my sister’s poetry or prose (she never felt right about it for some reason), and it’s too bad this never quite got off the ground, but it was fun while it lasted, and probably wouldn’t have stayed fun for much longer.
