The Little Magazine: A Journal of Literature in New Media, our second journal, was founded in 1965 as The Quest by Alexis Levitin, and later edited by Tom Beeler and David Hartwell. In 1970 Hartwell and Beeler changed its name to The Little Magazine. It has had a distinguished history of publishing both traditional and contemporary forms. In the 1990s it was acquired by 13th Moon which thereupon restructured itself from a single magazine into a press with multiple publications. It published a number of issues under the direction of Eugene Garber, in collaboration with Jan Ramjerdi and Ron MacLean. Upon Garber's retirement, Don Byrd replaced him as editor.
Byrd transformed it to a digital media journal, and mentored successive editorial teams, alternating between online and CD-Rom formats. Upon our relocation from upstate New York to New Jersey, we formed a new editorial team.
Since Byrd so presciently moved us to hypertext formats we have published two 3-issue volumes, each with its first issue a multimedia CD-ROM, and its subsequent issues online . Each of the online issues stays up until the next CD-ROM issue appears, at which point it is taken down and moved to a CD-ROM available to subscribers. The Little Magazine is not interested in simple digital transcriptions of poems and fiction from their original print formats. Instead, we seek multimedia, visual, or oral/aural cybertexts intended to explore the boundaries of electronic word and voice art, and innovative poetics essays discussing and / or exemplifying such work.
