    One thought on “Electric Literature no. 1”

    1. This is the best literary journal around Just 5 great stories that pull you in from the first sentence not to mention new work by Michael Cunningham and Jim Shepard You can even read it on your Iphone or Kindle They have also made an incredible book trailer animating excerpts from the Jim Shepard story youtube watch v OUClJF

    2. I gave this five stars because I enjoyed all five stories That pretty much never happens with literary periodicals It has a great list of contributors, and no single story was a letdown Sometimes big names get in because they re big names, but I believe that these names got it because they wrote good stories Can t wait to see the next issue

    3. Highly recommended to all my friends with e readers A fabulous new literary journal published electronically featuring 5 works of New Yorker quality short fiction per issue Good mix of heavyweights and new talent.

    4. Electric Literature no 1 es una recopilaci n de 5 historias de ficci n de distintos g neros de 5 distintos autores.Electric Literature est conformado por un grupo de escritores que intenta demostrar que hay siempre hay buenas cosas que leer, s lo hay que saber buscar y en esta ocasi n re nen 5 historias que en lo personal si bien me gustaron no dir a que fueron tan buenas como esperaba De lejos mi favorita es Three Legged Dog de Diana Wagman cuya historia mientras menos sepas es mejor Lo que me [...]

    5. I liked it, although I wouldn t say any of the writing was avant garde, really like straight ahead well crafted fiction, none of it that knocked my socks off, though Diana Wagman s Three Legged Dog came close Also liked the writing in the Michael Cunningham but dammit, I don t like excerpts from novels parading themselves as short stories They re two different animals It did stoke me up for the book whenever it shows up, but y know That s why I stopped subscribing to Granta, too many excerpts, [...]

    6. I loved the original cover I have mixed feelings about the stories Two of them Your Fate Hurtles Down At You Jim Shepard and From OLYMPIA, a novel in progress Michael Cunningham were vivid and raw enough to stick The others just didn t reach me The very idea of this publication, however, five short stories published every other month, and made available in various mediums, is wonderful and extremely timely I like the experimental attitude and utter lack of resistance to the new and ever changing [...]

    7. This is the only lit journal I read cover to cover because I design it But the fiction is top notch The books are 120 140 pages of mostly text and are comprised of five stories by different usually well known authors In most issues, there is also beautiful interstitial imagery unrelated to the fiction, but part of the overall mood of each volume.Definitely give it a try Available in print and all digital formats.Some insider info They are coming out with a box set of the first six volumes near t [...]

    8. Wonderful This is definitely the best collection of stories I ve read in the last couple years except for Granta s Best Young American Writers The stories are engaging, fresh, irreverent, and readable something The New Yorker should look into I m not knocking the New Yorker, I was a longtime subscriber, but I was becoming a little bored with their fiction Gee, then try and write your own, Miss Sassypants EL makes it look easy when writing is anything but I hope they continue to put out issues an [...]

    9. From the mind stirring cover art to the five mesmerizing stories within, this is a strong new journal, one of the only I read The others are McSweeney s, URB, and the journal of the Ibn Al Arabi Society.

    10. Excellent collection Not every story blew me away but all were well crafted, most were unexpected and the T Cooper story well, damn Love the cover And the last story about the dog walker to New York s elite was poignant and hilarious and charming.

    11. Short fiction Some of the stories were very good Pick it up online and use it to read when you have a few minutes to spare Good way to meet and learn some short story writers.
