Electric Literature, the literary magazine founded in 2009 by Andy Hunter and Scott Lindenbaum, brings wonderful short stories not only to your bookstore, but to your iPhone, iPad, Kindle, and ebook as well.

Comedian Mike Birbiglia (Sleepwalk with Me), John Lithgow, Aya Cash (Traffic Light), and David Rakoff perform new stories from the magazine by Rick Moody, Lydia Millet, and Joy Williams.
