Critical Linking: December 30th, 2014

 

Running, editing, publishing, and producing a literary magazine is easy, but naming one is hard. To help you get past that first hurdle, we’ve created this handy infographic to name your magazine for you.

My personalized lit mag name is “Southern Spider Broadside.” What’s yours?

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn has sold 1, 049, 943 paperbacks, according to Nielsen Bookscan. The book has earned the Nielsen Book Platinum Award, an honor given to books that have sold a million copies. The title joins the ranks of The Da Vinci Code, Twilight, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, One Day and The Lovely Bones.

And Bookscan doesn’t even cover all retail sales. Good for Flynn.

I was already interested in the BBC’s adaptation of Wolf Hall, but after this trailer I am officially in.
