Among the Literati XXXII
Dave Koch, founding editor of the new Land-Grant College Review journal of fiction, nonfiction, and artwork, tells me that their first issue has just gone to the printers. The first issue looks like a solid showing, with stories by Aimee Bender, Josip Novakovich, Robert Olmstead, and Stephen Dixon. Can't wait to see it! The world needs more little magazines.

Almost simultaneously, the third issue of Quick Fiction will be released this week. This edition includes new, quick fiction by David Barringer, Kirby Congdon, Barry Silesky, and Cecilia Woloch.  Stories are rumored to address bad women, a haunted car, baseball, boyfriends, and Ben Kingsley. The folks at the appropriately named JP Press -- they're based in Jamaica Plain -- also rolled out a new Quick Fiction of the Week feature on their home page. This operation continues to emerge as a solid source of short, short stories and prose poems.
