Recommended Reading is here!
I’m proud to say I helped fund the project, which is brough to you by the folks at Electric Literature.
They will publish one new story a week to the Recommended Reading Tumblr blog, which will also be available as a free download for the Kindle/iPad.
Here’s a little bit of background from their About page;
GREAT AUTHORS INSPIRE US. But what about the stories that inspire them? Recommended Reading, a magazine by Electric Literature, publishes one story a week, each chosen by today’s best authors or editors.
Recommended Reading is released on a four week curation cycle: beginning with a story chosen by Electric Literature, followed by excerpt from an indie press, then an author recommendation, and finally a selection from a magazine’s archive.
Each issue includes an editor’s note written by that week’s partner, introducing you to the work and their mission.
In this age of distraction, we’re uncovering writing that’s worth slowing down and spending some time with. And in doing so, we’ll giving great writers, literary magazines, and independent presses the recognition (and readership) they deserve.
A fine mission statement I’m sure you’ll agree, and an equally fine product. The first story, Watching Mysteries With My Mother by Ben Marcus is now live. Take a look.
