Martin Riker talked to Electric Literature about his debut novel, The Guest Lecture. When you find a writer who you sort of who means something to you, that’s a very special thing. But I think a really, really good publisher is more important. Because a publishing house creates a space in the culture, which seems to me a more crucial and larger gesture than a single writer’s voice. Jason Diamond explored the world of jazz books.

Jessica George discussed her debut novel Maame with Kirkus.

However, as I was writing this, I just knew that wasn’t going to be the case. Stream a new song by Frankie Rose. February's best eBook deals. eBook on sale for ..read more
