We’re gearing up to relaunch our periodicals in 2017—subscriptions will be available for purchase again soon. In the meantime, check out our books and back issues!

McSweeney’s is on the road: The Road to 50—our very own midcentury mark is now just one subscription’s worth of issues away. We squeegeed the windows, topped off the tank, our bellies are full of Doritos and now we’re just waiting for you! Luckily, you’re already here, at the starting point of this year-long, 4-issue road trip. Come with us to see what adventures this literary journey has in store.

Next Issue, we’ll be racing toward Music City—bypassing Nashville and Austin and heading straight to the highly anticipated, LP-inspired Issue 49, guest-designed by the legendary Gary Burden and featuring our finest writers covering, American Recordings–style, their favorite classic stories. Jess Walter’s channeling James Joyce, see Meg Wolitzer embody J.D. Salinger, and witness T.C. Boyle take on Italo Calvino—and that’s all we’re saying!!!

Could one single magazine subscription take you still further? The route checks out, and we think it can—if you sign up today, you’ll follow us all the way to our fiftieth issue. What will we find? Fifty writers, bringing with them fifty distinct stories? A vast literary metropolis, pulsing with life and diversity? Our greatest issue yet? You’re going to have to sign up to find out—and with the sort of year we have ahead, there’s never been a better time to do it. Will you follow us? We hope you will—as always, we can’t get there without you, and it wouldn’t even be fun to try. Don’t delay!
