Bookslut’s Final Bow

We have sad news. Jessica Crispin’s longstanding blog Bookslut will post its last come May. The message from Crispin herself:

Hey guys.

In May, we’ll be celebrating our 14th anniversary here at Bookslut. I really have been running this site my entire adult life. Which is why it’s a little scary to say: the May issue will be our last issue. I’ve decided to cease publication of Bookslut.

I want to thank everyone who wrote for us, copyedited for us, sent us books, took our books away (always too many books!), and everyone who read us. It means a tremendous amount to me.

We’ll be having a wake for our dear little slut, May 6, at Melville House in Brooklyn. It’s fitting that we’re ending things there, because Dennis and Valerie have been my absolute loudest supporters and allies since the very beginning, and Moby Lives was the one that started it all.

The archives will remain up until the apocalypse comes. Thanks for keeping me company through the years.

If anyone’s in Brooklyn for the wake, be sure to take pictures for us here in STL.
