Contrary Magazine


Though the word contrary usually comes with negative connotations, there is nothing negative to be said about the high-quality fiction, poetry, non-fiction, and hybrid forms offered by this magazine. With an attractive home page and loads of literature in the archives by masters of the craft like Sherman Alexie, this is not a website to simply browse: it is one to enter and stay in awhile. The work may teeter on the tightrope between accessible and experimental, but the magazine holds a secure place as one of the best around.
