Here is a small sampling from our recent Editor Interviews. We have interviewed over 1,550 editors.

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

A: I particularly like the Mississippi Review, Grist, Green Mountains Review, the Fairytale Review, Muse/A, Bone Bouquet, Platypus Press, Wave, and many others that will come to mind as soon as I move to the next question.

A: We want to be Hippocampus Magazine when we grow up. (But like most upstarts, we want to do it our own way.)

A: I'm in love with Wave Books. They have paper you'd want to wear.

A: Journals:
London Review of Books
PN Review
New York Review of Books
Publishers: Carcanet, Shoestring, Serpents Tail

A: Honestly, questions like this can become an exercise in name-dropping, so know that there are so many damn good magazines out there doing damn fine work, and we love that. But some of the publications we admire are The Adroit Journal, Thrush Poetry Journal, Poetry, The Greensboro Review, The Believer, Smartish Pace, Bodega, and so so so many others.

A: So many! The very first publication that got me into short fiction was Strange Horizons, and they still publish oodles of great stuff. Scigentasy put out a lot of quality stuff, but is sadly defunct. Beneath Ceaseless Skies is wonderful. Fiyah is doing fabulous things.

A: Bare Fiction Magazine, Stinging Fly, Open Pen, PANK, Smokelong Quarterly

A: I love Neon Dystopia.

A: Anyone who is putting in the time and effort required by publishing, no matter how polished, or even unrefined, deserves the admiration of all of their peers in this industry. Even if you personally dislike their subject matter, the fruits of their labor are enriching the lives of others, and these publishers often see little to no financial gain from providing this service to the masses. It's not a selfless industry, by far, there's a lot of reward in it, but it's a hard job. We should all try to spread the love, rather than focusing on a limited scope.
