I'm so glad I picked this up. The Minus Times has published a slew of great writers, and this collected edition of all thirty issues to date. The format of the book is interesting--it is printed on 8.5 X 11 paper and features very pristine copies of Kennedy's original issues composed on a manual typewriter. It feels as if you're reading the real thing. All of the slight offsets of the text and typos are left in tact. The Minus Times is a portal to the past and present of the underground literary world and provides its readers humorous insights on topics of sex, angst, philosophy, beer, etc.. I love what Editor Hunter Kennedy does with the clippings from newspapers and how they weave together to form a fairly unique, aesthetically-pleasing and culturally relevant literary mag.
