Publisher's Statement :
Ugly American is published once a year, on or around a solstice or something, but don't count on it. Single issues are $3 dollars if you can find it anywhere and $4 dollars (or a box of Boo Berry) via the mail. If you don't send the proper amount we will kindly ask the Angel of the Open Sore to bless you with a tumor. Serious inquiries of ad rates only, all others will be plagued nightly by the legions of the cloven hoof as we see fit. All unsolicited submissions (art, poetry, letters) feed the furnaces and all unwanted promos go to the landfill. Don't send anything for review. Don't blame anybody but yourself. Fuck off.
