Cover of Ev'ry Month

New York: Howley, Haviland & Co.
December 1896

Combining as it did both music and written articles and stories, this publishing venture briefly united brothers Paul and Ted professionally. The first issue of Ev'ry Month was published in October 1895, but the September 1897 issue was Dreiser's last. The freedom of expression and selection that he thought was now his as conceiver and editor of Ev'ry Month proved hollow. Dreiser quarreled with his brother and demanded more money and editorial license from the publisher Howley, and they parted company.
