The Jolly Roger is currently the world's largest literary journal, with over 30,000 subscribers signed aboard the monthly mailing list. Also affiliated with our site is the World's Largest Literary Cafe at killdevilhill.com and Western Canon University at westerncanon.com. In December '97 we were branded "simply unprecedented" in a cool New York Times article, in which they also said:

KillDevilHill.Com and two related sites -- Western Canon University and The Jolly Roger, two avowed pro-Western canon communities that make little room for modern literature -- teem with discussion, the kind that goes well beyond freshman lit 101. On the Mark Twain discussion board, a visitor wonders aloud about the "aspects of nature" in the Royal Nonesuch performance in Huckleberry Finn. There are arguments over William Shakespeare's childhood in the Shakespearean section. Over on the Herman Melville board, posters discuss Ahab's use of the sea chart as a controlling mechanism and Ishmael's artistic nature. --NYT Cybertimes, 12/5/97
The combined sites serve over 6,000,000 page views a month. AOL recently described The Jolly Roger in the following manner:

The Jolly Roger: Go here. Do not pass go. Whatever your tastes or politics, it's tough not to enjoy this smart-alecky, skillfully written and provocative online magazine. Literary, generational and plain-old politics take it on the chin from this threesome.

Although we fly the flag of the Generation-X Renaissance, we're a favorite literary locale for bibliophiles and lovers of literature of all ages. From our Virtual Shakespearean Greeting Cards to The Poem of The Day to BeaconRay's Great Books Bookstore to The World's Largest Literary Frigate, to the Kill Devil Hill Literary Cafe, to a Great Books university, people enjoy hours at a time on our nautical sites, as they're exalted and entertained.
