Contact Us


At McSweeney’s Publishing, we try to keep our whole operation small and personal and within close reach of our readers. To that end, our customer service phone rings in the same office where we edit and design our publications. This means that when you call us and have a question about an order or a subscription, you’ll immediately talk to an actual person, who is sitting ten feet away from the editors and designers who work with them.

A note about address changes:
Subscriptions purchased via the McSweeney’s online store are accessible in your personal account (unless you checked out as a guest). Whenever you return to the McSweeney’s store, just enter your login and password and you’ll be able to manage your subscriptions (and address changes) forever and ever!

If you subscribed or renewed through the mail, over the phone, or as a guest on our website, please submit address changes to [email protected]. We must receive your address change at least three weeks before the next mailing. Books are not necessarily forwarded to new addresses, so it’s best to get address changes in with plenty of time!
