Scarecrow was founded in October 2004 as an online forum for book reviews, literary comment, short fiction and nation-wide art when, quite disillusioned with events in the publishing world, he decided to turn his back on the mainstream bookish blatherskites and focus primarily on misunderstood, ignored and abandoned underground and independent literary fiction and culture.
Scarecrow continues to bang the drum for the unheard, the unconventional, the eccentric, the revolutionary and the radical, and has evolved into a showcase for published and unpublished writers of short fiction and poetry and receives submissions from all corners of the globe each week – some make its pages most don’t.
Lee Rourke also reviews books for ReadySteadyBook.com. His short fiction has been published in numerous online and print publications and he regularly writes for Dazed & Confused Magazine and London’s The Penny.
