Taking the pulse of online fiction

The online litmag The Danforth Review has a long look at the boom in online short fiction. TDR‘s Corin Cummings conducts brief interviews with the editors of a handful of websites — from Pindeldyboz‘s Shauna McKenna to Mississippi Review‘s Frederick Barthelme. Says the latter: “While [the ease of publishing online] may bring some crap to the fore, publishing on the Internet also brings out into the public eye lots of strange and wonderful stuff, a lot of stuff that Knopf is not going to publish, but which, in its own peculiar and isolated way is symptomatic and revelatory, and tells us about our world in a way we might not hear through other channels.”
