Welcome back, hereditary Hobo habitues!

This issue can trace its ancestry all the way back to the Mayflower, so feel free to blame it for America’s Puritan work ethic, the Trail of Tears, and the proliferation of clam chowder on chain restaurant menus.

We are happy to pass along pedigreed prose, patrimonial poetry, and antique artwork.  “Letter from a Birmingham Jail” traces the author’s lifelong search for notoriety, “History of Early Music” navigates the murky waters of adolescent lust, and “Jesussic Park” imagines Christ as a badass dinosaur slayer.  “No Comment” follows an editor’s quest to have a royal wedding of her own as “Smack Talk of the Town” lifts the seedy wattle of fire-escape heritage turkey breeding.

Gather up your heirlooms, climb the family tree and enjoy the legacy that is Hobo Pancakes!

With inherited/heritageous sincerity,

The Hobo Pancakes Team
