Have you seen Hazlitt? It’s Random House Canada’s new online pop culture/literary magazine. It’s slick as hell. I read it as RH’s attempt to do what they should have started doing in 1995, when Amazon first launched—create an inviting, online presence so readers know they exist and what books they “curate.” I haven’t researched this so I don’t know if or when there will be a similar RH USA offering. It may be that they’re keeping everything under wraps until 2029, when they’ll unveil their mind-blowing, cutting-edge device: the ereader.
