Introducing Full Stop & Full Stop Quarterly

Hankering for a new online lit blog to whet your insatiable appetite for thoughtful features, reviews of under-the-radar fiction, and interviews with young upstart scribblers?

For the past five-plus years, Full Stop has been publishing “unique literary criticism that focuses on the overlooked, the strange, and the as-yet unrealized”—as well as feature articles on everything from “bossnappings” to the murderous desire of listicles.

They’ve also got a beautifully illustrated quarterly edition going five issues strong. Check out the May issue here!

We hope you'll check it out and enjoy!
