Darby Larson has created a new online literary journal called Abjective, which came to life today with a short piece by Todd Zuniga called "The Recurrence."

(Keep your peepers peeled, I've got something new appearing there in the near future.)


Sir!, another new literary journal recently came to life, packed with exciting writing by many folks I dig: Blake Butler, Mike Young, Julia Cohen, etc., etc.

Check out especially Sean Kilpatrick's "Ten Percent" -- that piece cracks the moon.


Speaking of reading....
