Have it online, three (or is it four?) ways, with new lit journal Dragnet

There's a new online literary journal recently launched called Dragnet magazine. Actually, it's sort of a cross between a journal and an e-book. Issue one is available online as a web page, an e-book and a flipbook. There's also a mobile version. It calls itself "young, beautiful and flexible."The editors are Andrew Battershill, who lives in Victoria and Jeremy Hanson-Finger, who lives in Toronto. 
"We publish energetic pieces that push the boundaries of narrative form and/or work that makes us laugh, smile, cry, or have any strong reaction besides yawning, which I guess isn't actually that strong a reaction, but you get the point," they say.
The publication will come out four times a year, according to the magazine's launch press release, but new content is introduced daily on the blog. Contributors are all under forty (Battershill and Hanson-Finger are 22 and 23 respectively) and include new voices and already rising writers such as Sheila Heti, J.R. Carpenter, and Jacob Wren.
