– Carnival of Little Magazines

LunaParkReview.comIf you ever been through a literature semester that was somehow related to the concept of avant-garde, you are probably very familiar with the notion that literary magazines and journals are regarded as art objects in themselves, a notion that Luna Park Review has built up as its editorial line. This only recently launched journal of literary magazines is distributing its first print edition since last week, and they introduced their website to go with it, which provides a service not unlike that of BookForum.

com, meaning daily updates of the articles, essays, pieces of opinion, blog posts, and other bits and pieces of interesting information or musings the internet has to offer, only it seems to focus a bit more in literary issues, graphic arts material and literary magazines, it’s true raison d’etre. The site presents these links without commenting on them, and generally next to other vaguely related, so that in general each day is a bit of an in-depth report on some random topic, examples of which are the posts Heroes of Literature (covering Superman, Richard Ford, and some groundbreaking literary magazines) or the one on Roberto Bolaño’s works.
