Letters to the Editor
This section remains open for those who wish to write in about Jack Magazine, whether it be a rebuttal, praise, or "you suck." I will publish your letter if it's relevant to the current issue, doesn't slam the author too hard, and is written well. Just e-mail me at email@example.com. Make sure you give permissions to publish your feedback.
Dear Ms. Sands:
I just had the pleasure of discovering your magazine via the Webby Award-winning ARTS AND LETTERS DAILY (http://aldaily.com).
I check this sublimest of blogs all the time, and when they linked to Tom Bradley's superb "No Baudelaires in Babylon," in your essay section, I came right over. His stuff is always among the best of their features.
It's good to see a pure literary magazine like JACK featured alongside The Washington Post, The New Yorker, The Guardian, and The Spectator. But the real pleasure is seeing you publish the sort of thing those mastodons never could.
Tom Bradley's essay is 8000 words or more, and it stretches out in a way that bought-and-paid-for pages can no longer allow. This is a perfect example of the superiority of internet publishing to print--which is appropriate, as that contradiction is Tom Bradley's very topic.
I imagine the folks at Arts and Letters Daily were particularly excited to find this essay and link to JACK Magazine. And if the editors of those other publications aren't drooling with envy, they are more corrupt and complacent than I imagined.
Congratulations! I once heard that an Arts and Letters Daily link brings in thousands of hits. That was before they won this year's Webby Award (beating out the BBC by more than ten percentage points). I imagine now you'll have to invest in one of those industrial-strength hit counters like the family naturist sites have.
