We are so thrilled with this response to the first issue (originally posted to Shooter’s Facebook page by David Costello) that we are reposting it here:
“I’ve just received a copy of Issue 1. I’m not sure what I was expecting but what arrived has exceeded everything I had in mind. This is an intelligent, carefully curated journal which does great credit to the editor and her team. I’m delighted to have been included and wish all concerned my very best wishes for the future. I can see Shooter developing into one of the cornerstone publications of contemporary English literature.”
That’s not a bad goal… Feel free to subscribe to help us get there (and give Granta a run for their money)!

Amazing! Well done you – and team!
LOVED the first story.
Are you having a launch party?
Shooter arrived five days ago. The book hasn’t been out of my hands since. I am thrilled to be included in such a fine journal. The fiction is amazing. The sprinkling of poetry throughout is perfect. To find my two poems centered, face to face, took my breath away. On top of the fine writing, the cover is gorgeous. The paper rich…and I love the inclusion of the peach color throughout. Really, it’s an impressive collection. Thank you so much.
