>The Angler

>I’m really digging on a fairly new publication called The Angler. In addition to publishing flash fiction, they also publish reviews of flash fiction. In issue three, there are two such reviews, both of them noteworthy to SmokeLong afficionados:

Peter Anderson reviews Katrina Denza’s What She Gave to the Sea, which appeared in the December 15 issue of SmokeLong. And, of course, Kat just guest edited the June 15 issue and is joining us full-time on the editorial staff.

Joseph Young reviews Kathy Fish’s The Photograph, which appeared in issue 6 of InkPot. Kath, of course, was our long-time fiction editor, and Joe has appeared in SLQ more than any other author (five times).

I love the idea of lit mags including reviews of pieces from other lit mags. We absolutely should all be promoting one another. The more readers one magazine has, the more readers another is likely to gain. I think I may drop Donovan Hall (The Angler’s editor and publisher) a line to ask if he’d mind if we started doing something similar at SLQ. Y’all should absolutely go read his very fine magazine.

About smokelong

Our Mission: SmokeLong Quarterly is dedicated to bringing the best flash fiction to the web on a quarterly basis, whether writtenwidely published authors, or those new to the craft. The term "smoke-long" comes from the Chinese, who noted that reading a piece of flash takes about the same length of time as smoking a cigarette. All the work we publish is precisely that—about a smoke long.
