Sure Is Quiet

It sure is quiet around here. Then again, like I'm one to talk. Work's a little much right now so I haven't gotten much reading or fiction writing done.

Does anyone know of any literary magazines that are similar in tone and sensibility to Gargoyle? I'd appreciate any feedback if anyone has any.

Thanks for reading,

Before I answer, I should explain what I like about Gargoyle. It has been, and remains, my favorite mag because the quality of the writing is generally pretty high and it's open to a wide variety of styles and genres. While I don't like everything that's in Gargoyle's pages, I always find things that really work.

For me, Fence was pretty close when Jonathan Lethem was the fiction editor. Not so much anymore, but I highly reccomend the issues he edited. Barrelhouse shows a lot of promise. The one issue of Lady Churchhill's Rosebud Wristlet I've read I found amazing, and I also like Black Clock for many of the same reasons I like Gargoyle.

All that said, the only other mag that I can't wait to get my hands on everytime it comes out is Conjuctions. It can be a little on the academic side at times, but I always find pieces that really wow me.

This may or may help, depending upon why exactly you enjoy Gargoyle. Sorry this reply was so long.

I took a month off blogging and now no one visits my site any more except googlers.

Anyhow, just wanted to leave a comment to let you know that I am reading. :)

Heavens, there is only one Gargoyle. When something is one person's brainchild, you are hard put to find a kin to it, like what would you say is "like" Dave Eggers baby McSweeney's?

All that said, why not email Richard Peabody, editor of Gargoyle since he started it in like the 70s or what not (also publisher in chief of Arlington-based Paycock Press) and ask him what *he* likes. He knows the literary magazine marketplace like no one else. Email address? Gargoyle@gargoylemagazine.com

Thanks everybody -- how embarrassing I asked a question and then disappeared from the Blogosphere. ;) I am the worst blogger ever! Completely unreliable!
