    1. From the LA Times:'Best of the Web 2008'The collection of online literature, from series editor Nathan Leslie and guest editor Steve Almond, offers a range of voices rarely found together.By Chris DaleyJuly 27, 2008With growing mainstream acceptance -- and, more important, better writing -- online literature has started to come into its own. Yet how does a curious reader make sense of it? Nathan Leslie had an idea. He's the series editor of "Best of the Web 2008" (Dzanc Books: 340 pp $18 paper); [...]

    2. Most of the pieces are vibrant with youthful and/or iconoclastic voices. A poor copy editor marred what was otherwise a fine premiere edition.

So when I found out my story was going to be included in this first ever comprehensive online anthology, I was thrilled. Now that I own it and have read this collection, I am honored to be included in an anthology with so m [...]

    5. Guest edited by Steve Almond and introduced by Series Editor Nathan Leslie, Best of the Web 2008 collects the best prose and poetry published on the Internet from October 2006-07.What’s great about the book? It’s always pleasant to see Elizabeth Crane in an anthology—this time it’s “Promise” from Failbetter. Also, while I typically avoid reading anything with an overly medical nature (it freaks me out, man), Richard Jespers’s “Basketball Is Not a Drug” from Blackbird is phenome [...]
