The Sun is a monthly American magazine of essays, interviews, short stories, poems, and photography.
In 1974, Sy Safransky began publishing the Chapel Hill Sun and selling copies for $0.25 each.
In an interview with Michael Miner of the Chicago Reader, Sy Safransky explained that he intends to make all past issues available, but that the logistics had not yet been resolved.
When asked about the trend of print media to go entirely electronic, Safransky says, "I’d no sooner abandon print than throw someone I love overboard in a storm-tossed sea."

"Sy Safransky, founder and editor of The Sun, has been a friend of mine and a friend of Heron Dance almost since we started—since the time when Heron Dance didn’t have many friends. He is a man of truly good heart. When I interviewed Sy, he talked about the early days of The Sun. He showed me a photograph of himself 25 years ago—long hair and bare feet—selling The Sun on the streets of Chapel Hill for 25 cents a copy."
