One-minute update before the end of 2015

It has been a while since the MRU last post and promise to be more diligent in our literary blogging from now on – in advance of 2016 new year resolutions!

We thought it worthwhile to share a minute update of recent news (before the end of 2015) with our dear readers:


Instead of a time machine, how about a short story vending machine? Produced by French startup Short Édition to provide new reading material (1, 3, and 5-minute content) at the touch of a button. At the moment available only in Grenoble, France – brush up on your French!



The Association of Book Publishers of British Columbia (ABPC) launched BC Books  Online to make it easier for readers to search over 8,500 titles by category, publisher or reading list.  BC publishers produce about 1,000 new books each year and sold in over 90 countries around the world.




Finally, does this illustration by Anthony Russo of a Paris Review office “chock-full of literary heavyweights” seem to reflect another current theme in publishing?
