Some sad news from Cooper Renner and Brandon Hobson, editors of elimae:
In light of which, may I suggest taking a look through those archives and of course reading the latest issue, which, as always, has a bunch of really great work in it: Catherine Lacey, Jimmy Chen, Joseph Scapellato, Sam Martone, Daniel Grandbois, and Kristina Marie Darling among others.
If you go to the 1996-2004 archives (those apparently most likely to vanish), you’ll find wonderful stuff from Brandon Hobson, Michael Kimball, Norman Lock, Brian Evenson, Stacey Levine, Gordon Lish, Matthew Derby, Gary Lutz, Peter Markus, Dawn Raffel, Eugene Marten, David Ohle, Jim Ruland, Shya Scanlon, Terese Svoboda, Jane Unrue, Ken Sparling, Derek White, Diane Williams, Guy Davenport . . . I guess I’m not sure why you’ve haven’t already clicked over yet.

Very sorry to hear it; I’ve always liked elimae, which accepted some of my earliest publications. Coop’s always been the personification of kindness and professionalism.
This is sad news, indeed. Cooper published my first fiction in an issue of elimae some years back. I’m sorry to see that this source of fine words might vanish.
