All the stories are good but one is really excellent.
Good that there is a literary journal that we can get for a reasonable price, that reads well on my ebook and that isn't restricted in any way. Keep up the good work

Another triumph for the small press! It's great to see a new journal on the scene, especially one that's bring quality writing to new places.
This issue incldues the infamous Rick Moody Twitter story, and four others that read well on any platform and will suit any mood.

Oh lord above this is amazing. EL has done another marvelous job on picking quality over quantity. They don't stuff their books with nonsense and garbage but filter it down to only the best. This collection has by far my favorite story they have published to date. The Rick Moody, Some Contemporary Characters, story is for ever hopeless romantic.
EL is for a generation who don't like sifting through literary chaff. They're your personal Alfred Pennyworth with a silver platter of fantastic literature.

Review by: BrooklynBookBoy on Feb. 07, 2010 :
Electric Literature was recommended to me by a writer-friend who lives in Brooklyn and has her finger on the pulse of what's cool in the literary scene. EL knows how to pick stories that knock the dust off! I already have the first two issues, but this issue is the best yet. The Aimee Bender story is my favorite. It's classic Bender: a bit off kilter, super-funny, filled with awkward interactions, and (not to give too much away), but the ending has a subtle reversal that will break your heart. Five stars. Recommended for anyone who needs a quick story fix.
