FOR slightly more than a year, a mysterious little periodical has been circulating through the cubicles of New York publishing offices, attracting the kind of cultish attention usually reserved for letters stamped with secret societies’ seals...The name of the periodical, which arrives as an e-mailed PDF file, is The New-York Ghost. It offers an assortment of stream-of-consciousness prose, whimsical poems, dream transcripts and archival illustrations, as well as a mischievous motto: “The Weekly Newsletter You Print Out at Work”.... —Saki Knafo, The New-York Times

While waiting for the next issue, why not listen to our theme song?

We're not there—a tale of the tape

Thomas Beard goes head to head with film-maker Todd Haynes. Subscribe for free: newyorkghostATgmailDOTcom.

Those printer's devils were at it again, attempting to sabotage our latest 'Tale of the Tape.' A few lines were inadvertently dropped—well, advertently, from the devils' point of view.

First page, first column:
breaks down. ¶ I was just wondering if you'd had any

Second page, first column:
how they would be expanded, even exhausted at some point in the future. What do you think about those ideas

Second page, second column:
he's an architect—who's dying of AIDS and being cared

The Ghost apologizes for the error!

A: It consists of only two letters!
