The Milan Review, an English language publication out of–oh, you guessed it, nevermind. Anyway they make beautiful (wouldn’t you know?) periodicals that happen to double as books. Their very first one–which still haunts bookshelves–is the spectral Milan Review of Ghosts, with 14 stories by 14 different authors like Jonathon Keats, Tao Lin, Clancy Martin, E.C. Osondu. It’s both spooky and scary beautiful at the same time–white on white with an apparitional jacket designed by Matt Furie. The kind editors even do us the favor of defining what they mean by ghost, so we know what to expect. Sort of. The definition below is from themilanreview.com
