Review by: Travis Kurowski on Sep. 28, 2009 : (no rating)
One of the most exciting new publications to hit the lit mag newsstand in 2009--and, since the editors have already been so monumental in editing this first issue and marketing it and offering it in a variety of formats, I much look forward to issue 2 in October.

Review by: solomonbookeater on July 14, 2009 :
Electric Literature is perhaps the most exciting literary journal I have read in years. Each story in this first issue is captivating, intelligent, and moving. Despite being a brand-new publication, they have already managed to attract big names like Michael Cunningham and Jim Shepard, who have each contributed extraordinary work. And because the magazine is so simple and direct (just five short stories--no irrelevant non-fiction, or emo-doodles), it's the only literary magazine I can admit to having read cover-to-cover.
