Fine news. Another edition of Ernest Journal is out. Featuring lots of grand stuff including pieces on Romanian bison, cocktail bitters, American shanty boats, death trees and paranoid French castaways.
Also, there’s a bit from me about bees. It struck me a while back that not only does the humble honey bee seem to have more superstitions surrounding her than just about any other creature, but that lots of these customs are also oddly consistent across different countries and cultures. Look deeper into it and you find some fun ones, which is what I did.
You can get a copy of Ernie 8 here, and it’d be great if you’d consider doing so. They’re a grand lot, and beautifully designed indie publishing like this needs all the support it can get.
