An update from the editors of The Appendix.

Journalist Chris A. Smith on his search for "the Mick Jagger of Zambia."
From the Archives
An excerpt from Jackie Sibblies Drury's play, We are Proud to Present…, in which a group of black and white American actors struggle to make a play about Germany's genocide of the Herero in late-nineteenth century Southwest Africa. They have only one source, a cache of letters home from German soldiers, and their own misconceptions: sometimes funny, sometimes hideous. It does not go well.
About The Appendix
The Appendix was founded in late 2012 as a quarterly journal of experimental and narrative history, soliciting articles from historians, writers, and artists committed to good storytelling, with an eye for the strange and a suspicion of both jargon and traditional narratives.
