Subscriptions & Commerce.


The Fortnightly Review is supported solely by its readers and by the sale of books.

If you are a reader of The Fortnightly Review’s New Series, here are four simple ways to support our work.

1. Subscribe to The Fortnightly Review. Your support is essential, and, at £25 (about 35€ or US$40), an annual subscription is reasonably priced. It’s the best way there is of supporting our ongoing effort to extend not only the Fortnightly’s critical values but also G.H. Lewes’s promise, made on 13 May 1865, into contemporary cultural life:

The object of THE FORTNIGHTLY REVIEW is to become the organ of the unbiassed expression of many and various minds on topics of general interest in Politics, Literature, Philosophy, Science, and Art. Each contribution will have the gravity of an avowed responsibility.

Thus, in an age of digital excess and angry polemics, we strive to offer intelligent comment for open-minded readers. If you find something here that comforts by validating an already-fixed opinion or point-of-view, it is not by editorial intent. We rarely tweet and we snark not.

Odd VolumesBenefits of subscribing: We welcome subscribers by offering a complimentary choice of titles from our “Odd Volumes” imprint on a yearly basis. The button below does it all, via PayPal. All major credit cards are thus accepted in complete security. To make a one-time donation via PayPal, simply click here.

Thank you for this support. We welcome all comments and suggestions. Direct them to the editors:

If you wish to propose an editorial contribution, please see this page.

Note: We support the work of the World Oral History Project, which is affiliated to the University of Cambridge Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology and co-located at Cambridge and Yale. The World Oral Literature Project collaborates with local communities to document their own oral narratives, and aspires to become a permanent centre for the appreciation and preservation of oral literature. To earmark all or part of your donation, either use the button below or subscribe, then let us know your wishes by clicking here. To donate directly to the Project, click here.

2. Browse our catalogue of Odd Volumes. In 2013, with the publication of Stephen Wiest’s ScreedsThe Fortnightly Review began offering subscribers a collection of titles reflecting the diverse interests of the editors. We call our imprint ‘Odd Volumes‘, a salute to The Sette of Odd Volumes, a celebrated and long-lived association of bibliophiles founded in London in 1878 by Bernard Quaritch and others. (Our colophon is in fact borrowed from some of the Sette’s early printed pieces.) The list has grown considerably, adding 3-5 new titls each year.

These are noted and offered for sale here, but subscribers may choose a new title every year (see above).

3.Help us help others. We routinely receive requests for archival, publishing and research help from students, readers, writers, scholars, and others. We are limited in our ability to respond, but we certainly welcome ways of extending our usefulness to these readers. If you would like to help The Fortnightly Review expand its educational and publishing activities, a direct donation is the best way. Your donation can be processed securely by credit card by clicking this link. There is no tax advantage, however.
