Unique, literary, entertaining. Novels and short story collections that fit this bill can be hard to find these days, when there’s a preponderance of derivative (and sometimes just plain bad) writing in the world. But the hypothesis of the Experiment is that they are out there, those fresh, exciting, thought-provoking tales by both established and new authors. Here’s a place where writers and readers of this kind of material can share titles, authors, summaries, and where to buy it.
Good discussion is made great when you stop to read the news and consider someone else’s viewpoint. Maybe your eyes open to a new angle you’ve never considered. Maybe you clarify your opinion. Maybe you come up with new and interesting ways to curse knucklehead pundits who just talk to hear the sound of their own voices. The Newsstand offers a selection of Twitter feeds about writing, publishing, fitness, diet, fashion & style and, for those of you who are gluttons for punishment like me, politics, social issues, and world events.
