Bookslut was founded in 2002 by Jessa Crispin. Today it is run by Crispin, managing editor Charles Blackstone, and features editor Corinna Pichl.
The philosophy behind Bookslut is one of pleasure and one of expansion. Rather that niche out into various genres, a Bookslut reads without devotion to nationality, gender, medium, or bookstore subsection. We devote ourselves to omnivorous reading.
But being a slut has never meant having no standards. Our coverage is selective, but that is based on excellence rather than what is traditionally thought of as being important. Certain writers and publishers have our hearts, as we find excellence is today found mostly in the realm of small presses, academic publishers, and other places where profit margins are not part of the conversation.
