FYI: All-New SpecGram (Mid-July 2014) Online
The Mid-July 2014 issue of Speculative Grammarian—the premier scholarly journal featuring research in the neglected field of satirical linguistics—is now available online for your browsing pleasure.
The editors and publishers of Speculative Grammarian are pleased to announce another special bonus Summer Reading issue featuring a full-length novel by Mikael Thompson. ''Strangecraft'' is a slow-burning linguistic weird tale, a detailed, personal story told against a stygian, cosmic-scale backdrop. The narrator wends his way through the wilds of post-Subsidence New England in search of an advanced degree in linguistics, but both he and the reader find considerably more than they bargained for in and around the environs of the Miskatonic Institute of Technology, as numerous dire secrets are unearthed, entrusted, or mislaid.
Next time (August 2014), we will have another all-new issue of Speculative Grammarian.
Editor-in-Chief, Speculative Grammarian
The SpecGram Book is now available as an ebook, too!
