Current thread editor: Kiki Benzon. Thread editor from 2006-09: Stephen Burn
Everything that happens, happens now. The essays, narratives, and essay-narratives gathered under the thread title, Fictions Present, reaffirm the 'presentist' bias in electronic publishing and in ebr particularly: our non-periodical, continuous publication is designed to keep the archive current and to present critical writing not as an afterthought, but as an integral element in the creation of literary fictions.
There has never been a 'Best of the electronic book review' or a print collection. After ten full years of online publication, ebr has devised other ways of marking time, using techniques available in the same electronic media where the work first appeared. Here the editor presents an initial 'Gathering' of ebr essays, pulled from each of the journal's threads to date.
