all codes lead to roam

Here's a blog that lists some current journals and their contributors. No descriptive or evaluative review; just the facts ma'am. Where appropriate, the journal titles link to the journal's website. 'Tis has the makings of a goodly service, yes bloggerissimo?

No info avails about who doth blog the blog. This blogger thinks t'would be good to have address to which folks could send journals for review. Titles of works might be inneresting too--some kind o tasty teaser. Scanned cover art. Ahh--I can see it now, an online lit-mag bookstorish/reading room. One place to go to find them all and browse and buy one or two and some are free. Perhaps this will be, yes, plywood-ziggurat?

Isn't grouping a form of evaluation? I assume that these are the magazines that the blog-author considers worth reading. Taste is itself a form of discrimination: it admits & it excludes. If we believe the old adage that nothing's apolitical, then we must also recognize that nothing is free of judgment.

bloggerissimo, ye have truth! the selection doth implicitly express the blogger/author's values. 'tis why i did say no evaluative 'review'--perhaps that should have been 'evaluative comments'. ahh, bloggerissimo, ye keep me on my toes!

ahh and too this blogger sees that her own description 'just the facts ma'am' doth too easily suggest of the blogger/author's objectivity. thank ye for your good point bloggerissimo!
