N+1 Literary Magazine Now Available on Espresso Book Machines
The EBM provides a new sales channel for publishers, and vastly increases the availability of titles for physical bookstores, significantly reducing loss of sales due to books being out-of-stock. In addition, the EBM technology offers libraries and bricks-and-mortar retailers the opportunity to become community self-publishing centers, providing a new distribution platform for self-published authors. And of course the EBM improves overall efficiency and environmental sustainability by eliminating shipping and the return and pulping of unwanted books.

n+1 is a Brooklyn-based magazine of literature, culture, and politics published three times yearly. It was founded in 2004 by Keith Gessen, Mark Greif, Chad Harbach, Benjamin Kunkel, and Marco Roth – all of whom have gone on to write acclaimed novels, memoirs, or works of criticism (Keith Gessen's All the Sad Literary Young Men; Mark Greif's Bluescreen, available in German only; Chad Harbach's The Art of Fielding, Benjamin Kunkel's Indecision, and Marco Roth's forthcoming The Scientists). n+1 immediately attracted attention in New York and beyond. A. O. Scott described the publication in the New York Times Magazine as part of "a generational struggle against laziness and cynicism"; the German newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung wrote, "they intend nothing less than to reimagine and reestablish the world."
