      Thank you for the opportunity to read your advertisement. After careful consideration, I have concluded that I am unable to purchase your work at this time.

      The opportunity to assess the published creations of writers from around the world is a great privilege and responsibility, and with that in mind, I want you to know how honored I am that you have trusted me to consider your work. I invite your further advertisements and remain grateful for your continued effort with the ongoing Caketrain project.

  4. drewkalbach

      is the price a pre-order only thing? either way i plan on purchasing this magazine.

  5. Caketrain

      Not a preorder-only price, Drew, but preorders do help us.

  6. Blake Butler

      your “you publish me then i buy you” mentality is part of why the whole thing is sinking.

  7. Gavin

      I like to think that somehow, in some universe, “B Jackson” above is actually Bo Jackson, ex-hybrid sports star, aspiring writer, and snarky poster.

  8. Michael J Seidlinger

      Preordered. Looking forward to it!

  9. Caketrain Journal

      I fucking want to BE that cover image.

  14. Tim Jones-Yelvington

      I should buy this, I am OBSESSED with that cover, and I haven’t bought a caketrain since the one with the dodo.

      I’m going to go ahead and pre-order this with my credit card, even though I have piles upon piles of unread lit-journals and a fairly high credit card bill, but I can’t really ignore a good looking journal with a lot of writers that I love within (Tan Lin! Rosmarie Waldrop!)
