Two clicks, but for you free:
The Cupboard is a free and anonymous pamphlet published once a month in Lincoln. It seeks to publish prose in a format that is broadly distributed by its editors, writers, and readers. All work published in The Cupboard is done so anonymously, but we can tell you that previous contributors have published work in Fence, Ninth Letter, Mid-American Review, Beloit Fiction Journal, Indiana Review, Jubilat, LIT, Cutbank, Cream City Review, and many, many others.
Somehow, this comment is clever and inscrutable.

There's a huge fucking typo taking a shit on the site.

Alterior? Jeebus.

I once went into a print shop and they had a huge fancy brochure they were giving out touting their "Digitial Services." 80 point type on the front. These were varnished, diecut, embossed, etc., etc. To you or me at least $10-per-piece brochures.

They had none next time I was in.

HTML is easier to fix. Alterior?

Huh. I just figured "alterior" was part of the humor of the fiction thingie they're trying to do.

Pretty slim pickins for a front page post, though. Not much there there; just one foldable pdf of three very short stories. Or am I missing something?

As one of the editors who had to figure out why our hits suddenly went through the roof in the middle of the month, I just thought I'd explain the "error." For what it's worth, it is supposed to be a pun on the word 'alternative.' We were attempting to be snarky and clever and everything we're probably not. Misspelling-dependent puns will be avoided in the future.

Thanks for checking out our little anonymous pamphlet in any case.

Three thumbs up. I'd not seen it before and now I have. As an added bonus, it does not suck.
