We are making some big ch-ch-ch-changes over the next year, including building a new website, so we are not updating this website very frequently. If you have come to shop for our books, please see our Square catalog here for our big warehouse-clearance sale! All overstock books are $5.00 while the overstock lasts. If you have inquiries that have not been answered or are seeking info that is out of date here, please email us at alt.current at gmail dot com. If you are waiting on submissions that have not yet been answered, we are terribly behind and short-staffed, but we *are* still reading through and answering everything.
