An online lit mag that doesn't suck.

Beyond being Mindless Link Propigation, this is also Shameless Self-Promotion. That's two mortal sins in one post, Mommy! *** So much of the online fiction that is available really sucks. We know it, and we know that you know it. We are trying to do something about that. Poor Mojo's Almanack is an online magazine devoted to bringing quality fiction, poetry, and essays to the online community free of any charge. We update all of our content weekly-- so if something sucks, it'll only suck for seven days.


It's pointless to try and sum up our content in a brief pitch; just pay us a visit and see if you like our stuff. In case you're thinking that this is just a come-on to get you to visit a worthless site in order to increment a counter so that we can get paid for flashing, javascript banner ads-- perish the thought. Poor Mojo's Almanack doesn't (and never will) run any ads or hold any commercial affiliations. We're clean, baby. A work of love. We want to create a zeitgeist. Additionally, we're offering two separate AvantGo Channels-- a palm-sized edition of Poor Mojo's Almanack (same content, nicer format for reading on a screen the size of a snack cracker) and Poor Mojo's Penny Dreadfuls (classic and contemporary Sci-Fi, Horror, Mystery, True Tales, etc.) Of course, both will be updated weekly. Thirdly, as another service to our palm-carrying brethren, we've set up a Doc-on-Demand Conversion Engine-- give it a hunk of text or URL and it'll convert that content into a palmDoc, suitable for reading using CSpotRun, iSilo, AportisDoc, etc. I guess that's it: visit, enjoy, convert some text, drink a little wine, make a little love-- you know, the usual.

I don't know that this MLP will generate a lot of discussion, but hey, what MLP does? Really?

Your site is pretty good. I'm not too much into short stories or poetry (I prefer novels), but I liked your rants section.

Your Rants sections seems to have a disagreement about how to spell Britney Spears's name. I dig the commentary. I don't really like her music, but oh-my-god her voice is amazing (I'm serious!)
