"A hotel is defined by its inhabitants," runs Hotel’s tagline. If Hotel itself were a concrete edifice, it would be more like Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas’s Circus-Circus than the Grand Budapest, despite its tasteful, clean exterior. Its commitment to “new approaches to fiction, non-fiction and poetry” promises all manner of havoc. It is not the only journal committed to literary innovation, but it is among the best.

Forthcoming Autumn ‘23 in a limited edition—edited by Tenement’s Dominic J. Jaeckle, Prototype’s Jess Chandler, and designed and typeset by Traven T.
