The Appendix Archives

This is an archive of The Appendix, a journal of narrative and experimental history. Between 2012 and 2015, we published eight quarterly issues in two volumes, as well almost one hundred articles to our blog, featuring the work of 168 historians, writers, and artists with an eye for the strange and a suspicion of both jargon and traditional narratives.

We started with the end and finished in motion.

We published stories of the birth of fire; Chinese ghost tales told in reverse; ancient Andean echo chambers, lost Soviet amusement parks, brave men and women, running from enslavement, or boxing their way to freedom; and as many balloon stories as your patience would bear.

Thank you for reading. And thanks to Hannah Carney, J.R. Jones, Andrea Kinnison, Amy Kohout, Shannon Nagy, Marissa Nicosia, Lydia Pyne, and Michael Schmidt for their editorial dedication and to all of our countributors for their scholarship and creativity.
