Here is a small sampling from our recent Editor Interviews. We have interviewed over 2,225 editors.

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

A: We are immense fans of American Poetry Review, Thrush Journal, Brooklyn Rail, Rising Phoenix Review, Greensboro Review, The Kenyon Review, The Massachusetts Review, and The New Yorker, just to name a few.

A: While there are a number of magazines that have inspired us, these are the ones we most frequently go back to: Strange Horizons, S-F Magazine, Daily Star Books, Slant Magazine, Mithila Review, Star*Line, Sticky Rice Magazine, New Gothic Review, and COEVAL Magazine.

A: The publications that operate in this region of the literary world exist only because of the contributions of the writers who support them. For that reason, I don’t admire any publications. Instead, my admiration is for the writers whose works collectively support our efforts to publish.

A: TOWER magazine, Clarkesworld, Let Her Be Evil, and Archive of the Odd!

A: Wigleaf, -ette, Moon City Review, Booth, Boudin, Ghost Parachute, Bending Genres, 7x7 LA
