Breaking News: Lame Magazine has Lame Cover

Please, please tell me this is a parody.  I’m all for humor, but I can’t take this.  Not just the tatted bro with his fixie, but the stuff about how agents are actually nice/necessary and the bromide about how small presses are the best ever, too.  Please tell me there aren’t earnest editors behind this.

Now, I can’t speak to this guy’s literary chops, because I haven’t read him; for all I know he’s the next Hazlitt.  But he let someone take that photograph and then put it on the cover of a national magazine.  Even though P&W is pretty useless (writers don’t need trade rags), this is embarrassing.  Here’s hoping Mr. Kaelan keeps his shirt on next time and lets his writing do the talking.
