Rain Taxi is your home for new and exciting literature—as one reader stated, “It’s the best magazine in the country devoted to independent and innovative publishing.” Every issue is an invaluable guide to fascinating works across genres. You'll find reviews of fiction, poetry, nonfiction, comics, art, drama, children’s and YA books, as well as interviews with authors, essays, and more. Rain Taxi helps you stay connected with current trends and discover new artists and movements before they’re picked up by major media outlets. At Rain Taxi, we are dedicated to getting the word out about great books you might not otherwise have heard of.
