Michigan librarians Mary Kelly and Holly Hibner created this humorous blog to defend the necessary but controversial process of culling the library's collection to make room for new titles. Their motto: “Hoarding is not collection development.” Some classics destined for the pulp mill include God, the Rod, and Your Child's Bod: The Art of Loving Correction for Christian Parents; Nazis in the Woodpile; Children's Head Injury: Who Cares?; and Eat Your Troubles Away.
They publish short fiction and essays, 1,000-4,000 words. Enter through their online submission manager. Editors say, “We like things that are funny. Think George Saunders and David Sedaris and Woody Allen and Jack Handey and Bill Bryson. We're also believers that funny can be sad and poignant and gritty and whimsical. We like when funny gets dark or ambiguously inappropriate.”
Launched in 2012, PPJ features authors such as David Alpaugh, Bruce Boston, Tracy Koretsky, and Hal Sirowitz.
