Number 4 / Spring-Summer 2020
UPDATE: After even more changes and unexpected difficulties over the last 2 years (including the untimely death of co-editor Paul Z. Simons) Modern Slavery #4 is still in the process of being reorganized and laid out. It should be showing up in mailboxes and newsstands by spring. We are currently reworking our distribution plans to make the journal less of newsstand periodical and more of a subscription & direct sales/web sales journal so that we can make it more economically viable in the current libertarian / anarchist publishing climate.
In other news, due to big changes in the production collective for the magazine Anarchy: A Journal of Desire Armed, it will from now on be published each Spring and Fall by the same production collective as Modern Slavery, which in turn will be published each winter. We are currently working on getting issue #78 of AJODA completed as we also finish up work on MS #4 to get it out the door ASAP.
I’ll post a listing of the full table of contents once they’re finalized and we’re closer to press time! But here is a tentative listing during production. I don’t necessarily expect everything here to fit — and there are other possibilities also being considered, but I’ll be trying really hard to fit as much as possible! I expect this to be the best issue yet.
