Without Covers is a unique insider's look at how literary magazines have adapted to the arrival of the Internet age. It incites conversation, debate, argument, and most pressingly, questions regarding the reasons behind and effects of small literary magazines moving to online publishing. Questions discussed are: Is it possible? How? When? and the most puzzling, Why? Through the musings of nineteen well-known editors, poets, fiction, nonfiction, and hypertext writers, readers can eavesdrop into a discussion of the purpose and politics of online publishing that has created a new bridge between traditional literary interests and current institutional, cultural, and financial pressures to focus on technology.
