New people and old friends here at Fictionaut. Hard to narrow it down to just a few and yet there were certain works that just got me, just reached out and pulled me into a different world. After all, that’s what it’s all about, isn’t it?

I know exactly what I do and do not like and I can tell you why in excruciating detail.

Since joining in 2008, I have found Fictionaut a wonderful place to read and discover great writing. Taking a turn at Editor’s Eye has been an honor, and like those before me, a challenge, since many of the stories I loved received more than 5 stars.

Fictionaut is full of amazing people who love to read and write. But it’s very difficult to isolate the overlooked writer on board because they don’t stay hidden for long.
Fictionaut brings the social web to literary fiction, connecting readers and writers through a community network that doubles as selfselecting magazine highlighting the most exciting short stories, poetry, flash fiction, and novel excerpts.
