Good Write Up on Online Fiction by David Backer

Over at The Millions, FictionDaily editor David Backer’s got a good round up of where he finds interesting fiction online. Good stuff. I like his description of the new landscape:

If one were to make a map of this new world of fiction (and it’s starting–see the Indie Publishing Wiki) the title of the map would have to be something like “The Thriving Life of Fiction.” This is because fiction is flourishing in myriad directions. Though, to continue with the map metaphor, its capitals and governments are shifting power and location. What was once a strict monarchy is evolving more and more into a muscular democracy. Voices, speaking from all corners, are gaining legitimacy through their own emergent means as opposed to the upper crust of university journals and large publishing houses.
