Title: Clive does it again.
Post by Kevin Cryan on Today at 10:15
Very soon after I began reading Clive's essays regularly, his writing was instrumental in turning newly-founded London Review of Books (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/London_Review_of_Books) into a less stuffy and altogether more entertaining alternative to the The Times Literary Supplement (http://tls.timesonline.co.uk/), and the literary magazine to get hold of.  

Now, if my fellow-countrymen Joe Griffin (http://www.siliconrepublic.com/contributors/index.html) of the online Irish technology and news service magazine, Silicon Republic (http://www.siliconrepublic.com/), is to be believed,  Clive's various contributions appear to be helping to do very much the same kind of thing (http://www.siliconrepublic.com/news/news.nv?storyid=single8887) for the fledgling American online magazine Slate (http://slate.com/).

It must be rewarding for him to think that even now there are some new furrows left to plough.

I am not sure I would call Slate "fledgling".  It has been around over a decade and I thought ot was pretty well known  :)

I think that as an online magazine, it can still be categorised a fledgling. Yes, I should have been clearer about what I actually meant.

This full list (http://img.slate.com/id/2078017/) of awards  is even more impressive and probably proves your point.  

However, I still think that the addition of the likes of Clive and Christopher Hitchins to its  its roster of contributers has given Slate a prestiege that has lacked. It now means that it is in there seriously competing for attention of a readership which would normally buy The New York Review of Books (http://www.nybooks.com/) or The New Yorker (http://www.newyorker.com/). Would you agree?
