Just in the click of time….

We’ve done our spring cleaning. LE SCAT NOIR is sporting a new logo and masthead design. (Yes, the journal’s mascot “Scatman” has finally made the front cover.) In addition to our regular features (Adrienne Auvray’s “News in a Nutshell,” Terri Lloyd’s “Dear P.B. advice column,” Doug Skinner’s absurd musical instruments, and Frank Pulaski’s no holds barred horoscopes) this special April Fools  issue includes outstanding fiction by Alphonse Allais, Eckhard Gerdes, Jan Vander Laenen, Jason E. Rolfe, and D. Harlan Wilson; humor by Peter Gambaccini; poetry by Paul Rosheim; and sublime art by Darlene Altschul, Paulo Brito, and Carla M. Wilson.

To celebrate spring and the impeachment of Donald J. Trump, we offer readers a free ticket to the festivities. Finally, our short-lived national nightmare is over. Now we can all breathe a sigh of relief.
