The literary magazine Joyland is joining forces with the design, distribution, and business team at Canada’s ECW Press to launch a new eBook imprint in October. The Joyland eBooks imprint will feature “the best in North American short fiction.”

It will open with When They Cried by Jim Hanas and Letters to Thomas Pynchon by Chris Eaton. Joyland co-founder Brian Joseph Davis had this statement: “Over the last two years, Joyland has built up a community of authors and readers. Working with ECW to start an e-book imprint seemed like the perfect way to give back and throw our hat in the ring of digital publishing.”

The third title will be picked in a Joyland reader contest. Here’s more about the contest: “The selected author will receive a $500 advance and his or her book will be e-published in Spring 2011. The deadline for submissions is August 1, 2010, and the contest is open to all residents of Canada and the United States. More details about the contest are posted [here].”
