The Hungover Gourmet Returns to Print!

(Click for full size image)

It seemed fitting to make this announcement on the most food-centric holiday on the US calendar. 

The Hungover Gourmet: The Journal of Food, Drink, Travel & Fun will return as a print publication in 2023. 

I've flirted with this idea in years past but never pulled the trigger. But after careful consideration (sorta), chatting with fellow zine publishers (okay, one zine publisher), and even writing a THG-inspired piece for said zine publisher, it felt like the time was right. 

I’m not sure if this will be a one-shot deal, an annual thingy, or a return to regular publication (as if we ever had that). I just know that I’ve missed the outlet and after searching for something to fill the creative void left after burning out on Exploitation Retrospect: The Journal of Junk Culture & Fringe Media (issues 52 & 53 still available at Amazon!), I decided to stop searching and return to something I really loved doing—writing snarky restaurant reviews while having an excuse to indulge myself in the frozen food section of ALDI and LIDL. 

At this point I still desire contributions to help make this a worthy Hungover Gourmet reboot. Like Leonard Nimoy, I’m in search of 250 to 2,000 word reviews, rants, essays, food fiction and non-fiction, as well as cartoons, photography, and artwork. Topics THG is interested in include (but are not limited to): 
  • Restaurants That Aren’t There Anymore
  • Food In Media (TV Shows, Movies, Comics, Music)
  • Childhood Memories
  • Restaurant/Food/Drink Reviews
  • Cooking Disasters/Successes 
All contributors whose work has been accepted for publication will receive byline/artist credit as well as two copies of the issue in which their work appears. 

To submit work, or for more information, email Deadline for contributions to THG #12 is December 31, 2022. – Dan Taylor
