Come Celebrate the Armchair/Shotgun Issue 3 Launch at BookCourt, Sept. 16th!
We’ve teased, taunted, and titillated, but finally–without further ado–we’d like to present… drum roll please… Issue 3 of Armchair/Shotgun in all its published glory! But, don’t just take a long gander at the fantastic looking cover proof above (looking right purdy next to issues 1 and 2 even with all that ‘mood lighting’), come check out the real deal for yourself at our launch party and reading on Sunday, September 16th at BookCourt. As usual we’ll provide libations and typewriters for your merriment. You just need to show up, listen to a selection of our awesome writers (listed below), and have a great time.
