Slake Reveals Preview of Issue 2

Since its second issue won’t be out in time for the holidays, Slake is offering a preview on its website. The mag has posted the story “An XXXmas Carol” by Dave White online for free.

Says Slake of its sudden decision to–partially–embrace free Internet model:

We know that some of you are heading home for the holidays. And while most of you will return with picture-perfect memories of time with the family, we also know that at least a few of you will experience all the classic angst associated with being the L.A. weirdo among a group of “normals.”

We devote Dave White’s “An XXXmas Carol,” Slake.la’s first online exclusive, to that latter group. Dave’s visit back to East Texas a few years ago might be an extreme example of holiday stress, but we’re sure many of you will be able to relate.

So as you start to ignore work as the long weekend approaches, sneak a read when the boss (or Mom) isn’t looking. And thanks, as always, for your support!
