Publisher's Statement :
Ugly American is forged at the hoof of the Woozlebug, in accordance with the seventh ray avatars and the dominator Dominus. Most review material received is DOA and becomes instant trash, so there's no address. Therefore, must have Black Seal for a response (and only the self luminous need apply because we can only be contacted in the ether or by ouija). The only way to get it to us is by conjuring a jinn to whirlwind your pithy offering up, up and away...
Contents copyright 1995 by the Siege Cannon Thor Of The Jersey Shore. Anybody that fucks with us will regret it. Du Sith will fell you with an elfbolt. The Great Old Ones will rain down ruin on your home and health. Our own personal witchdoctor, a black belt in the black arts, will put a wanga on your life. Just the thought of theft will enact a rex of a hex upon your head. We'll storm in like SAFTA fueled shock troops to collect on the karma. Just ask the witch of Endor, asshole.
Warning: Our tentacles reach into every cave and can telegraph every kobold. We know the nepheliads on every cloud. The moon is our searchlight into every night. The Divine Spark provides lightning at our fingertips and the Devil is at our disposal. We'll hunt your headstones. Our crystals are clear as glinting glaives, are yours?
