Consider your favorite mischievous, childhood friend or your own mischievous deeds, thoughts and attitudes, from the rude and wreckless to the pleasantly subtle.




AQC searches the gutters for lost/unwanted coins and is therefore unable to provide financial compensation to journal contributors. AQC will make every effort, that is within AQC's means, to mail out comp copies to contributors. This takes time as the mailing out of comp copies is dependent on sales.

If a contributor wishes to purchase a copy of a journal he or she is published in, AQC will send two copies for the cost of one (plus shipping). Contributors may order as many copies as they wish and AQC will double their order(s) at no additional cost. AQC will do so for every order that is placed through the AQC website by a contributor, who is printed in the specified AQC journal. If contributors wish to receive two-for-one (double your order), contributor must place order through the AQC website. AQC cannot control orders placed through Amazon.

Contributors, if ordering a copy, be sure to use an email address that clearly identifies you.
