jmww's fall edition

jmwwjmww, the Baltimore-based online literary journal, has just released its fall edition

You'll find poetry, stories and the "hell boxes" of featured artist Rachel Bradley, a Towson University alum who lives in Brooklyn. There's also criticism, including a review of Dear Everybody by local author Michael Kimball (for the Read Street interview click click here) and Christine Stewart's discussion of her favorite poets of the moment.

jmww may be ahead of its time. The University of Manchester just started an online-only journal called The Manchester Review. Edition #1 includes poetry, essays and the opening chapter from Man Booker winner John Banville's upcoming novel, The Sinking City. The semi-annual review is published by the university's Centre for New Writing, home to professor Martin Amis.  

Is this the future for journals, which are often pressed for cash? Just as e-books are nibbling away at book sales, will online journals wipe out their paper counterparts? Or do you prefer the traditional version?

About the blogger
Dave Rosenthal came to The Baltimore Sun as a business reporter in 1987 and now is the Maryland Editor. He reads a wide range of books (but never as many as he'd like), usually alternating between non-fiction and fiction. Some all-time favorites: A Confederacy of Dunces by John Kennedy Toole; Wind, Sand and Stars by Antoine de Saint-Exupery; and anything by Calvin Trillin or John McPhee. He belongs to a book club with a Jewish theme.
