Boudinot! An Appreciation by Aaron Burch | HTMLGIANT

And thus was Hobart #4 created… He introduced me to Laird Hunt and J Robert Lennon and Ray Vukcevich. The issue opens and closes with pieces by Aimee Bender that were inspired by a painting by Marcel Dzama featured on the cover. There’s one of (I think?) Tao Lin’s first stories in print. There’s Stephen Elliott and Robert Lopez and Rick Moody…

I wrote a little appreciation of Ryan Boudinot that turned into a kind of history of Hobart/online lit journals and personal reflection, or something.

Elizabeth Ellen remembers first reading a submission from Tao Lin, 8 years ago…

Things I remembered about reading Tao Lin’s short story “The Novelist,” which appeared a long time ago (Aug/Sept of ’04) on Hobart.

It’s been a decade, give or take. I went looking into the Hobart archives and the oldest story is from March 2002. Over ten years! 
In the coming days and weeks we have more of these “from the vault” pieces where we want to highlight some of our favorite stories from the archives and give them a bit of a second life; a series of short, “craft-based” interviews focused onthings other than fiction, like skateboarding and thrift stores; a few food & drink pieces, including a monthly bourbon review; interviews with “non-readers”; movie reviews; lots of ideas we’ll probably come up with later; and even poetry(!!).
For this, our launch, a handful of us editors looked back at some of our favorites from the Hobart archives:
Elizabeth Ellen looks back at Tao Lin’s “The Novelist” from Aug./Sept. ‘04
Matthew Simmons looks back at Amy Minton’s “Overhanded” from May ‘07
Jac Jemc looks back at Spencer Dew’s “The Exit Colony” from October ‘04
Jensen Beach looks back at Glen Pourciau’s “Belly” from October ‘08
Aaron Burch looks back at two Aaron Gwyn shorts from early ‘02
Thanks. We hope you like.
