I have placed for sale on Lulu, the print-on-demand publisher, a double-issue edition compiling the contents of issues #1 and #2. It is available in both print and download options. The print edition is $9.65, which is about as cheap as I could get it. I think that's maybe a reasonable price for a printed, bound version of those 116 pages, but who knows what the shipping will be on that. That's been my whole hang-up with these print options the whole time: the book might not be too expensive, but they'll really let you have it on postage. Just for the hell of it, I made it available for download from there also, for a fee. Most regular readers have already seen both issues in PDF (and #1 is free for the downloading all the time anyway), so that won't be of much interest to most of you guys. But as we go forward and more people find out about it (and when we get, say, issues #3 and #4 out), then I expect maybe some people will want an option like that. The M-Brane Lulu "store" can be reached by clicking here. I will also get a link up on "Page 2"--that place you go to when you click over there on the left for subscription info or writers' guidelines.

Monday, March 2, 2009
Like the print edition of #1 (as those few of you who saw it know), the Lulu print omnibus lacks interior color--it's not like M-Brane's full of pretty pictures anyway. I reproduced in miniature the color covers of both issues on the front of the double-edition. Then, within it, the reader will find those front covers reproduced again in their normal page 1 positions, but rendered in black and white. There is no master table of contents: the pagination of the thing is exactly like that of the stand-alone issues. It's as if they have been stacked #1 on top of #2 and bound together.Related Articles :
A single-issue way to buy #2 in print is not yet ready--I will update on that shortly (or at least by 3/15) like I've been promising.
I'm also going to put up a way to buy the single issue of #2 in PDF from this site as another option for folks who maybe aren't ready to commit to the whole subscription. All of this will be accessible through that "CLICK HERE" spot in the upper left which whisks the reader away to "PAGE 2."
