McSweeney’s 59
McSweeney’s rings in the 2020s with a brand-new, oddly shaped paperback issue of our National Magazine Award-winning Quarterly Concern. Gaze inside this short-covered book to find: stories about cultish acting classes and human remains and eerie parties in dusty parlors; the conclusions of Issue 57’s cliffhanger stories by Oyinkan Braithwaite, Brian Evanson, and Mona Awad; essays on historic ACLU cases by the likes of Jacqueline Woodson and Charlie Jane Anders; letters from Brandon Hobson on an armadillo incarnation of Andrew Jackson and Jenny Slate on the indignity of game nights; a spread of full-color photographs by Tommy Kha; and so much more. Join us, hand-in-hand, as we enter a whole new era.

McSweeney’s 60
For the first time ever, McSweeney’s Quarterly is illustrating each short story with full-spread, elaborately-staged photographs. Featuring eight original stories, and accompanying photos by the award-winning photographer Holly Andres, Issue 60 contains tales of healing powers discovered in a neighborhood market and retiring baseball stars, of ill-fated father-daughter float-plane trips and a romance with the ghost of an old Hollywood heartthrob. A not-to-be-missed, oversized issue, this is one you’ll want to keep preserved in a temperature-controlled room for generations to come.

All subscriptions to McSweeney’s Quarterly automatically renew after four issues, at a reduced price of $75. Before the start of each four-issue renewal, and in the case of any future rate changes, we will notify you via email. If you’d like to cancel your subscription at any time prior to its renewal, you can log in to your account and adjust your subscription settings or send an email to custservice@mcsweeneys.net with the subject line End Quarterly Renew, or call (415) 642-5609. Refunds will be accepted only up until the first issue of your renewal is shipped. If you’d like to give the Quarterly Concern as a one time gift purchase a gift subscription here. Any subscriptions bought where the gift option is marked at checkout will not be enrolled in autorenew.

International shipping costs for a 4-issue subscription (1 year): $42
