Atlantic cuts fiction

The Atlantic, suddenly flush with cash, has joined the host of general-interest literary magazines (the Saturday Evening Post, Harper’s Bazaar, Mademoiselle, Redbook, and Cosmopolitan, to name a few, used to publish O. Henry award winners with some frequency) that have stopped publishing short fiction in recent years. Sort of. For now, “the magazine plans to offer a newsstand only fiction issue.” (Via Ruby My Dear.)

(My rash decision to buy an online subscription in the wake of the loathsome Caitlin Flanagan’s departure for the good ship New Yorker is looking even more ill-advised now.)
