After a long succession of manufacturing disasters, protracted dispute claims and unforgivable delays (forgive us anyways?), the Magnets of Suspense are rolling off the conveyor belts en route to Alt Screen headquarters. Rewards will be packaged and shipped out next weekend, arriving sometime during the week of June 11th. Thank you for your generous support and much-needed patience.
As we are way off our original timetable, we'll be contacting each of you individually to confirm your shipping address remains the same.
- If your information has changed, you can respond then or contact us now.
- If your address has not changed, you can simply ignore the message and we will use the original information provided.
- If you haven't yet sent along your address, now works just great.
Have additional questions? (We are working on the eBook.) Please feel free to message us here or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Best wishes and deepest thanks,
The editors of Alt Screen

Psst. P.S. In honor of our national conversation on bullying, Alt Screen will present a revival of Todd Solondz's break-out black comedy Welcome to the Dollhouse (in 35mm!) at this year's fourth-annual Northside Film Festival (Jun 14-21).
Darkly funny, slyly tender and endlessly quotable ("Who told you to fight back?"), this tragicomic portrait of middle-school hell has helped a lot of us come to terms with our adolescent traumas (we, too, were freaks). And unlike us, it never gets old. The original working title for Dollhouse was Faggots and Retards – honestly, what more could you need to know? Here's the trailer:
Welcome to the Dollhouse | Thurs June 21st at 9:45pm | Nitehawk Cinema
The screening will be proceeded by a clips show from Derrick Bickles of TV Carnage fame. We didn't organinze this half of the program but are thrilled to be splitting the bill. Also: there is a surprise guest in the works. Mysterious, no? We can't link to the listing directly but you can click through on this calendar.
P.P.S. We're sincerely very sorry this project ran so late.
