In honor of old-school skiffy: II

Hat thing
I was chatting to shweta_narayan  and rose_lemberg last night about a certain type of Old Skool Skiffy. 
 
So, Good Peoples of the Internets!  Inspired by Shweta's post here and brought to you by the various Table Of Contents Fails and Outbreaks of Stupid (and the gentleman professor who recently told me biological science -- my field --  is "no longer real science, it's too full of girly"), allow me to present to you the first four SIX issues of BoobieShips & TitRockets a PROPER Skiffy Magazine.


Boobieships Issue 1

Issue 2:


Issue 3:
Issue 3

Issue 4 (a collectors item, due to a printing error!)
Issue 4

And ALL NEW, Issue 5:


Issue 6



As you can see, BoobieShips & TitRockets houses only the Best Speculative Fiction the world has to offer. Top Quality Stuff. If the table of contents is strictly male, strictly straight and strictly white, well, it is an editor's job to choose to best.

I choked on my gum and died, but the hysterical laughter revived me. Well played!

Thank you and I'm glad you were revived!

(Oh, and I have *adored* your icon from a distance for ages!)

Thank you! Shweta made it for me (and gave permission for other to use, BTW).

I love the additional covers.

Love the guarantee of no lettuce in each issue, in particular.

Thanks!
You never can be too careful. That lettuce is pernicious stuff.

OMG. This is amazing.

Thank you for the much-needed laughter!

Oh, wow. Will there be an icon series? ;)

There really should be, alas I have no icon making skills.
(But anyone is welcome to give it a go!)

This is the most beautiful thing I've ever read in my life. I wish to subscribe to your magazine.

I'm linking this all over, if that's okay.

*grins* Be by guest.

Also:

New editions of BoobieShips & TitRockets will be issued irregularly, most likely Whenever-Stupidity-Erupts, or When I Am Particularly Annoyed. ;)

Here via shweta_narayan. Thank you for the laugh!

Sadly, this was my experience at a significant number (nearly half?) the room parties at a recent con I attended. Pandering to male heteronormativity is not what I want out of a con's room parties. Le Sigh.

Hi! Shweta has mentioned you.

Alas, I've only really been to one Con, and I left early due to running smack into the same sort of attitudes I'm mocking-- here on top of some casual harassment. Not what one wants out of a con party OR a con.

Le Sigh indeed :/

How much for a life-time subscription?
januaryhat

A life-time subscription to BoobieShips & TitRockets can be yours for the very affordable price of $Free! with a surcharge of *headdesk* and *facepalm*.

(via some brown haired girl) just donated a dollar an issue to Clarion. I assume my subscription will arrive discreetly packaged? RJ

Gosh, thank you!

All BoobieShips & TitRockets are delivered in futuristic brown envelopes.

These are made of awesome!!!!!

I bet if you printed and framed some of them, they'd sell really well at next year's Tiptree Auction.

I believe that the art show accepts mail-in art, if that helps. Printed out, matted, or even just shrink-wrapped on foamboard....

They are v cool! (Here via @nalohopkinson)

Oh my god this is hysterical. I nearly choked when I saw "100% lettuce free".

That lettuce, it gets everywhere if you're not careful. ;)

Got here via tnh@Making Light. Much loud laughing here; the dogs are trying to figure out what's going on. The Dr. Suess horn is truly awesome!

Got here via rosefox: These are fabulous, but the anachronistic font choices really mar the retro look you're otherwise achieving. You should switch to less-serify, less-scripty, more boring fonts to project a more authentic image.
