Here is a small sampling from our recent Editor Interviews. We have interviewed over 1,950 editors.

Q: What other current publications (or publishers) do you admire most?

A: Third Wednesday and Dunes Review

A: The New Yorker, Sun Magazine, The Atlantic, Literary Mama, Tin House, Narrative, Ploughshares, and so many more!

A: I really like what Death's Head Press is doing with their Splatter Western line. It shows great branding, and as a customer/reader, I know the type of literature I am going to get from them. I also admire Perpetual Motion Machine Publishing. Max Booth III and Lori Michelle have raised the bar with publishing horror and when I created Timber Ghost Press, I used them as a role model.

A: Penguin Publishers

A: I must admit I don’t read a lot of online poetry or journals. I’m quite fond of Dreich, which has a good mix of styles. And Defenestration, the humour website.

A: The New Yorker, AGNI, Gettysburg Review.

A: TOUGH, Pulp Modern, Rock and a Hard Place, Mystery Magazine

A: The world of literary sports is small but there are some great places out there. The Under Review does a great job with a much wider scope than we have. Whenever something doesn't quite fit baseball-wise (see: softball stories) I try to send them to The Under Review.

A: We like reading some other small publishers and presses. Two of our current favourites are:
Cosmic Horror Monthly @
Weird Horror Magazine @

A: Rockingham Press
Bloodaxe Books
Poetry Salzburg Review
Many poets and writers

A: Poetry Magazine, Tin House, Popshot, Cream City Review, Santa Clara Review, Ploughshares, Black Warrior Review, The Believer

A: Poetry, Cincinnati Review, Sledgehammer Lit, Briefly Zine, The Believer, TAB, Rejection Letters, HAD, Hobart; there's an endless list of small journals we admire.
