The Journal of pSeudoscience
After critical acclaim for Volume 1, Satellite Conventions is looking to publish another edition of The Journal of pSuedoscience. As before we want to educate discerning fans with information on the latest pScientific discoveries (e.g. perpetual motion machines, galactic travel by mushroom). Submissions should be of a pSuedoscientific nature, the more amusing or outrageous the better.
Please see here for submission details and a link to Volume 1 of the Journal.
