Best of the Net 2008

My poem "Jane Austen's Toes," originally published in the online journal Apple Valley Review, was chosen by poet Dorianne Laux for inclusion in the 2008 Best of the Net Anthology.

The Best of the Net "works to promote the diverse and growing collection of voices that are choosing to publish their work online, a venue that still sees little respect from such yearly anthologies as the Pushcart and 'Best American' series." The publishers hope the Best of the Net will "help to bring more respect to an innovative and continually expanding medium."

Rob:

Congratulations on the republication (is that anything like republicanism?). Will this 'best of' collection be published on paper? I think the 'Net is great for exposing new work and exploring old, but there's still nothing like a real book in a pile next to the bed or the desk.
