HASH(0x9a29090c) out of 5 stars What a GREAT idea! Aug. 6 2010
By Reader/author - Published on
Counter-intuitive, biting and very Los Angeles, Slake is the brainchild of the folks who brought us the best version of L.A. Weekly in California history. It's a quality magazine, more like a fine collection from a beloved author, friendly and intended to be kept with your favorite books. I love my Kindle, and hope they go ebook too, but for me Slake is something you want to feel in your hands, sniff coming out of the envelope and pass along to your kids. Well done, folks. Looking forward to the next issue.

HASH(0x9a290d14) out of 5 stars Enjoying the Ride! Aug. 7 2010

I am enjoying the ride that is my summer reading of SLAKE. I am a voyeur at heart and I feel like I am peeking in the window of people's souls through their memoirs in the journal. I am amazed by the real-life dramas that read like movie scripts--really good movies, that is. The variety of stories and imagery keep me engaged. I am actually tired of the fast-paced magazine flipping I usually do on the plane; and tired of the "quick read" of some of my usual blog sites and news sources. I find SLAKE to be refreshing and rejuvinating for my mind and soul. I am a proud subscriber!

HASH(0x99fda15c) out of 5 stars Solid entry into a soft business Aug. 7 2010
By Steven W. Booth - Published on
Slake is the kind of magazine that intends to slow you down and make you think and keep you on your toes. Poetry, prose, articles, editorials. Absolutely daring to bring it out at this point in time, and manna from heaven for those of us who love to read. Subscribe.
