Out Now! The Budget Press Review #1!

Greetings to you all! Welcome to the Budget Press review! This is the first of hopefully many to come your way. I have scoured the globe to find the highest level of artistic fluency anywhere! After all, everything I publish has my name on it! From within the Budget Press family, I found !Micromegalomania!, a new short story from S. T. Brophy, the author of nice guys finish furniture, and Exiled by P. Sebastian Strong, the author of Unpleasantly Plump. Also included within these gilded pages are three new illustrations from Chris Katko, and two new poems from Chad Davidson. Even I, johnnie b. baker, is represented with my short story, Funland at the Beach. So sit back, relax, and order the Budget Press Review today! For only $1 you can have the full hard copy of all the groovy things you only get a glimpse of here. Lot's of other stuff will be included when we send you the review in the mail. **out of print**

Excerpts from Funland at the Beach

Fred decided to go swimming. He grabbed one of the 
boogie boards and off he went. Then, all the sudden,
