Book Review: Annotations- A guide to the Independent Critical Press

Document Actions

Alternative Press Center, 2004, 756 pages, $29.95

From A(bafazi) to Z(ona Abierta), with 383 stops between, Annotations is a catalog of the alternative press. Capsule summaries of each periodical are followed by sections on editorial and manuscript policies, financial and staff data, circulation, and much more. Listings of columnists and noted contributors convey something of the flavor of each publication.
In the aggregate, the listings give readers an overview of the vitality of an international literary culture. As Robert McChesney writes in his introduction: “These publications are like the Book People in Fahrenheit 451. ... They are indispensable to any hope for a vitalized democracy; they are our lifeline to a future worth living.”
