Electric Literature is just that, Electric - five great stories that grab you.

Our Summer 2009 debut anthology features the first published excerpt from Michael Cunningham's forthcoming novel. This issue also features new fiction by some of America's most innovative and important contemporary writers, including Jim Shepard, T Cooper, Lydia Millet, and Diana Wagman. The stories in Electric Literature are charged with wit, incident, and emotional gravity right from the first sentence.

Michael Cunningham is the author of the novels A Home at the End of the World, Flesh and Blood, The Hours, and Specimen Days. The Hours won the 1999 PEN Faulkner and Pulitzer prizes.

Jim Shepard is the author of six novels, including most recently Project X, and three story collections, including most recently Like You'd Understand, Anyway, which was nominated for the National Book Award and won The Story Prize.

Unrated Critic Reviews for Electric Literature


Of course this not to say that other journals don’t, but I’m not sure how many small lit outfits can afford to pay their writers $1000 per story and still be able to offer print editions.
