What Our Subscribers Say

  • "I heard the song and made everyone around me listen to it too! They loved it. Now about the March Issue - I loved the edit note it was so informative, well worded and personal at the same time. The variety in the content amazed me, forgive the cliche but there is something for everyone in there. I loved the poems specially 'The Journey of a Poem'. Snap! was also a good read. I liked the used of images & illustrations though they can be used in a far better and smarter way. A slight visual relief would really enhance the magazine say even a rule or box here & there. Perhaps the information that a poem is now a song could be in a bolder font! The special feature was also nice. I found Vinita Nangia's interview a misfit somehow both in terms of writing and choice of person. I also went through all the previous covers and while I liked most of them I couldn't really see a pattern there. A pattern say India inspired stuff (truck art and chai stall) helps one identify with the magazine. Perhaps you could think of bringing some kind of artistic consistency there. In all, a pleasant read for anyone who wants a thought to stay with him/her. I'd say the magazine is not a mere collection of works but thoughts of people from all across that add so much depth to the issue. That's it for now! Look forward to your next issue. Cheers"

  • Also, let me congratulate you. I’ve dipped into it [eFiction India]. The quality of the writing is high. But the remarkable thing is that this is a new concept in e-zines: it is a sort of global franchise, a literary franchise. The parent efiction magazine farms out submissions to it member/editors in different parts of the world. Another of the wonders of the internet age.

  • For those who still think the literature of India is just about gods, the British raj, extreme poverty, Bollywood movies, or call centres full of people mimicking American accents, please read this collection of short stories and poetry from some of India's best and most promising writers. I was especially taken with "The Tree Husband," a short story by Barnali Saha about a woman's longing for a marriage that scarcely exists, longing in the presence of another bond that is far more certain. As well, "Phobia," the story of one young woman who wants to pursue a career and other ambitious goals and does not want to be pregnant (at least not yet) will leave you with a bit of an ache in your heart. Read this collection. As soon as you are able.

  • I learnt about eFiction through a facebook post. I have read every poem, almost all stories and seen all the recent short movies. As a reader, it’s a relaxing and neat (I like the swank design and feel) place to visit. I usually save the movies for Saturdays. If I were to define my eFiction experience in more material terms, it’s like getting to visit and linger on in a luxury resort.

  • "Dear Nikhil Sharda : I always look forward to your informative editor's notes.I usually find editors notes boring in general because they are dry and always contain the expected.You put great effort into your editor's notes. They are interesting and informative. Keep it up.Great effort!!"
