Dr. Alan Gribben, Mark Twain scholar and editor of the highly publicized NewSouth Edition of Mark Twain’s Adventures of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn and of five other editions of these works — all recently published by NewSouth Books — has been named editor of The Mark Twain Journal. The journal is devoted primarily to the life and works of Mark Twain and his circle of family, friends, and acquaintances, drawing especially on contemporary sources.

Founded in 1936 by Cyril Clemens (Editor, 1936-1983), The Mark Twain Journal is one of the oldest American journals devoted to a single author. Its second editor, Dr. Thomas A. Tenney, oversaw it from 1983-2012. Upon Dr. Tenney’s death the current editor, Dr. Alan Gribben, formed an affiliation with the Center for Mark Twain Studies at Elmira College, which now serves as its editorial address. The journal also has a formal affiliation with the Mark Twain Circle of America.

The Mark Twain Journal publishes two issues a year (Spring and Fall). Double issues are occasionally created for special purposes or on topics requiring more space. Recent issues focused on Twain’s literary indebtedness to Hannibal, Missouri, and his affection for profanity.
