Hark! Cue the silver snarling Â trumpets…
Beginning tomorrow, out go your copies of PANK 4, packaged smartly by our little animatronic snow elves, mailed directly to your door where PANK 4 will emerge from its supple wrappings like a faun, begin whispering its secrets into your ear as it rubs your shoulders, then fuck your brains out. And really, how could it not, this host of hosts, these 234-pages of wicked sweet awesomeness, how could they do anything less than f-u-c-k-y-o-u-r-b-r-a-i-n-s-o-u-t? The metaphor is too convoluted and harsh? I’m sorry, I’m excited. Sweet, sweet love, maybe? PANK 4 does that, too. Hell, PANK 4 will just hold your hand and talk about its feelings if that’s your thing because PANK 4 does it all.
I ask you this: What other literary magazine promises these things?

If you ordered PANK 4 with HOW TO TAKE YOURSELF APART, HOW TO MAKE YOURSELF ANEW, you’ll be receiving both in the coming days. Sorry for the delay.

Spread the gospel, PANK.
