Best of the Web 2009

An anthology of stories edited by

Praise for the Best of the Web series:

'Such a development could not have come at a better time for online literary publishing.' - NewPages

'The book is heartily significant, featuring work that is sometimes surprising . . . and sometimes exhilarating - not unlike the Web itself.' - Los Angeles Times

'The book, which canvasses both fiction and poetry, really cooks . . . in the melding of the two genres. . . . The Internet is built for this work: short and weird, just what one's attention span wants when clicking through. And Almond and Leslie wisely pick up on that, making the book worth paging through, as well.' - Time Out Chicago

'Though publishing online provides us the opportunity to present fiction free from economic imperative, permitting us, our authors, and our readers to relish in the experiment of expression, one of our great regrets is forgoing the sensation of binding it, printing it, holding the work we proudly select in our hands. Then along comes Dzanc Books, and this gift of a book, Best of the Web, that feels, to us, like the presentation of an award.' - Aaron Petrovich and Alex Rose, editors, Hotel St. George Press

This Best of the Web anthology is the first comprehensive print anthology to represent the vast array of contemporary online literature on an annual basis, bringing the world of web journals to a greater audience.
