McSweeneys Issue 63
McSweeney’s Quarterly returns with our first issue of 2021, a handsome and sturdy hardcover with a beautiful foil-stamped cover by Jon McNaught. McSweeney’s 63 features four posthumous, never-before-published short stories by acclaimed author and dear friend Stephen Dixon, with an introduction and retrospective on the late writer’s work by author—and onetime Dixon student—Porochista Khakpour. To boot we’ve got brand-new fiction from Etgar Keret and Esmé Weijun Wang, Illustrated diaries by Abang and full-color comics by Michael Kennedy, letters from Kashana Cauley and Legna Rodríguez Iglesias, an essay on a grief and long-distance biking by Adam Iscoe, and so much more. Start your literary year off right with this sumptuous issue.

McSweeneys Issue 64: the Audio Issue
Combining art, fiction, audio, and a slew of unclassifiable print objects in a custom box, McSweeney’s 64 is a riotous exploration of audiovisual storytelling, coproduced with Radiotopia from PRX (home to genius, independent audio creators including Song Exploder, Criminal, Ear Hustle, and more). Each piece in the issue establishes its own relationship between audio and print—the contributor’s unique experiment in weaving the mediums.

Included are Rion Amilcar Scott with a short fiction piece featuring two alternative audio endings; Pulitzer Prize-nominated composer Kate Soper with a transhumanist, interactive software upload; DeafBlind poet John Lee Clark on the limits of accessibility; Claudia Dey, Jason Reynolds, Renee Gladman, Sharon Mashihi, and more taking us on audio tours of our own homes; Aliya Pabani with a radio drama whose plot is complicated by a 24” x 30” illustrated poster; Ian Chillag with an absurdist, interactive phone tree; James T. Green, Catherine Lacey, and This American Life’s Sean Cole with voicemail dispatches to the editor; and so, so much more.
