Update October 1, 2018: Issue 2, “Frontiers,” is finally nearing completion. (See the overview to the issue here, and two preview pieces: “A State Adequate to the Task” and “The Hermit and the Empire.”) Thanks to sales from issue 1 and many generous donations, we’ve raised nearly enough money both to print issue 2 and to do a larger, higher-quality reprint of issue 1, after which’ll begin preparation of both issue 3 and the first in a series of other printed works: the translation of a Chinese collection of factory diaries and commentaries. (In the next few months we’ll begin publishing the contents of this book in serial form on our blog.)
However, we still need to raise a few hundred more US dollars before we have enough to print issue 1 and reprint issue 2 — hopefully by the end of the year. So we are now sending out one more call for donations. One-off donations may be made via the yellow PayPal link on the right side of this page, and regular monthly donations (for which “sustainers” will receive complimentary copies of all our printed works) via Patreon. Thanks for your support!
Several readers have contacted us asking how they can donate to help us produce new content more quickly and afford to print higher-quality copies of the journal. In response, we’ve set up a Patreon account, where you can sign up to donate small amounts of money every month until you choose to cancel your subscription.
When we print issue 2 of our journal later this year, we’ll also produce a slightly larger and higher-quality reprint of issue 1, mailing a copy of each to our sustainers. After we’ve raised enough money to cover that, any additional funds will be used to produce the first in a possible series of book translations or collections of translated texts, to be printed in addition to future issues of the journal. Sustainers will receive copies of these other printed works as well.
