Best of the Web 2008
Nathan Leslie, Steve Almond
Dzanc Books, Jul 1, 2008 - Fiction - 332 pages
This print anthology compiles the best fiction, poetry, and nonfiction that online literary journals have to offer in an eclectic collection in the manner of other broad-ranging anthologies such as the Pushcart Prize and The Best American Non-Required Reading. This is the first substantial attempt at creating an annual print compilation of the best of material published online.
“[The] mingling and occasional blurring of genres distinguishes Best of the Web from any other print collections showcasing online literature...the book is heartily significant , featuring work that is sometimes surprising...and sometimes exhilarating—not unlike the Web itself.”—Los Angeles Times
