The Chap | February 17, 2014
The Chap has launched a radical new reader offer, in a drive to persuade more readers to subscribe to the print edition of our mighty organ of sartorial splendour.
It works like this: if you like the cut of The Chap’s jib, but feel unwilling to commit to an annual subscription before having the magazine in your hands, you simply place an order for a free back issue, pay the paltry postage cost – just one Pound Sterling if you live in Blighty – and you will receive a back issue selected randomly from our vaults.
Don’t worry, this isn’t a way of clearing out our cupboards of duff issues – because there aren’t any. Each edition of The Chap has been lovingly crafted by skilled masters of the arts of penmanship, one-upmanship and loafing about-ship. The publishers feel that readers will be itching for further pages of sartorial advice, cravat critiques, brogue-buffing tips and unusual umbrella anecdotes, once they have owned and enjoyed a single edition of Britain’s only gentleman’s journal.
Your free issue will come with some special subscription deals exclusively available to those taking advantage of this offer. Place your order for a free copy of The Chap here

I had the honour of having British-Chinese comedienne Anne Chen drop in on this here little blawg to plug an upcoming event in Greenwich, UK! It’s a Steampunk Opium Wars extravaganza, at the Greenwich National Maritime Museum, where there will be song and poetry about the Opium Wars, and folks playing historical figures from the time period will slug it out in poetry slams over the finer details of waging war to push drugs on an entire people to enslave them in a consumer market for trade benefits.

Who speaks for dead 19th century authors? Diani, Devine, and Steampunks do! In a horrible twist of events, the publishing company that currently has the rights to publish Huck Finn, decided to replace the N-word with “Slave”. This is Literary Graffiti, and to change a word that was placed there by purpose to make people ask questions goes against the spirit of History.
Mark Twain was a humorist however, and so Diani & Devine think that if he were alive today, he would fight this butchering of his story with comedy. So using the logic of the book butchers they shall replace the offensive word “slave” with a more pleasing one, “ROBOT”. (Click more to get details to the launch party)
Huckleberry Finn [Robotic Edition] is a complete work of remixed speculative fiction which tells the classic tale with Jim replaced by Robot Jim. Its my opinion that this is the very spirit of Steampunk and as such, I am highly interested in attending the book’s launch party. If you’re in the Los Angeles, CA area, perhaps you are as well.
