    1. Electric Literature no. 2 es una recopilación de 5 historias de ficción de distintos géneros de 5 distintos autores.Electric Literature está conformado por un grupo de escritores que intenta demostrar que hay siempre hay buenas cosas que leer, sólo hay que saber buscar y en esta ocasión reúnen 5 historias que en lo personal me gustan pero no me terminan de convencer, a veces siento que los 5 autores se crearon sus historias mientras escribían porque si bien no son predecibles también no [...]

    2. Lydia Davis' "The Cows" is easily my favorite story in this volume, and it's an overall strong collection of stories. I love these cows.(For my full review, head to Glorified Love Letters.)

    3. This is the only lit journal I read cover to cover because I design it. But the fiction is top-notch. The books are 120-140 pages of mostly text and are comprised of five stories by different — usually well-known — authors. In most issues, there is also beautiful interstitial imagery unrelated to the fiction, but part of the overall mood of each volume.Definitely give it a try. Available in print and all digital formats.Some insider info: They are coming out with a box set of the first six v [...]

    4. One of the interesting thing about a collection of this size, I think, is looking at the placement of the stories in relation to each other and what the group says as a whole. Here you have three works about young or youngish people trying to make sense of the world and the workings of their hearts, bookended by stories featuring protagonists who've made peace between their inner and outer lives -- Colson Whitehead's comedian in the first story, Lydia Davis' cows in the last. More to say but I'm [...]

    5. Short stories are pleasant to listen to while driving because you can often hear an entire story. I liked the one about the cows the least (and even listened twice to see if I was missing something), but overall enjoyed the collection.I read this and EL No. 3 as "Electric Literature Aloud!: 10 Short Stories from America's Best Writers" from Audible (audible/pd/Fiction/Ele).

    6. Four of these stars are for Pasha Malla. The other is for EL generally. The three girls story was good too, though, but maybe not worth a thousand bucks. Still not interested in Lydia Davis outside of her role as one of Brandon Scott Gorrell's characters that one time (Nervous Assface / bearparade).

    7. I thought this issue was a bit more uneven than the first. I was surprised that the stories from the authors whose names I knew (Colson Whitehead, Lydia Davis) were actually in my opinion the weakest. Strong, emotionally piercing writing from Pasha Malla, Stephen O'Connor, and Marisa Silver, though.

    8. The Pasha Malla and Marisa Silver were my favorites I think. Colson Whitehead's piece reminds me of Louis CK, but also the writer himself. Didn't care much for Three Cows but I appreciated the effort, I think.

    9. Not as good as no. 1, but still pretty great. Stephen O'Connor's "Love" was a stand out -- the first few pages were deceptively simple, but by the end, I was hooked and amazed.

    10. The Pasha Malla story was pretty great. I was glad to have read Lydia Davis and Colson Whitehead after hearing so much about them.
