Tin House goes digital

Tin House magazine has gone electronic -- its issue called the Ecstatic can be downloaded via iTunes or Amazon for $10. The Ecstatic includes work by Kelly Link, Meghan O'Rourke and Matthew Zapruder. The quarterly literary journal promises it has translated its print design to tablet e-readers.

Other magazines, such as Wired and the New Yorker, have already taken the electronic plunge, of course. But some are still finding their way -- Vanity Fair has tried its hand at doing digital singles for the Kindle and Nook, like Keith Gessen's behind-the-publishing-scenes piece, "How a Book Is Born."

But not all literary magazines have made the plunge. So far, the Paris Review remains an avowedly print publication.
