Review The Online Magazine: The Blue Jew Yorker

Yesterday I received an email from Daniel who asked that I review his website, which is an online magazine. I of course looked through the current issue and the back issues, and loved it.

I can say this is an excellent magazine. I'm not Jewish (Either by heritage or religion) but I found this to be enlightening and the satire in issue #6 is beyond great.

For those who wonder about what all this is about there are so many wonderful facets to this site, the poems are great, it is visually appealing and easy to read. There are thought provoking essays, and in issue #1, there is an essay about the crisis of reading.

Issue #6 though is different, the writers are using satire at its finest, with some of them being laugh out loud funny. Don't take my word for it, go and see this website.

Go and read all the issues, as they are fine pieces of writing unto themselves. I only wish that I had more hours in the day to read these pieces. Of all I will say that issue #6 is the best. There is so much power to this issue, and so much that even with laughter, it causes one to think. By the way, while not giving anything away, issue 6 isn't what you think it is... in terms of writers.


In case anyone who has a good book out there on Transylvania, I will be more than happy to review it send me a comment or email.
