About The Nevada Review

The Nevada Review is a journal dedicated to Nevada: it aims to enhance understanding of the state as a geographical, social, and political unit and a microcosm of the West in the broader historical and political development of the United States. Recognizing the distinctive geological, environmental, social and ethnographic characteristics of Nevada, the Review seeks contributions that examine these features and investigate how they have contributed to the shape of its political institutions, demographic profile, and cultural mores. To this end, the Review encompasses studies from a broad range of disciplines and perspectives, including, but not limited to, history, political science, economics, and literary criticism and also accepts literary contributions of short fiction that concern Nevada, its people, and their way of life.

What people are saying:

“A biannual publication, [the Nevada Review] is an eclectic mix of almost everything that appears in print:  commentary, policy pieces, original fiction, historical visits, book reviews, and more.  Nowhere else will you find a thoughtful policy discussion on mining tax next to a fictional account of a bar in Virginia City.”

Dee Holzel, Silver Pinyon Journal

“The Nevada Review is an innovative, wide-ranging publication that promises to be an important vehicle for commentary on the state’s government and politics, cultural life, and major events that have an impact on Nevada and the lives of its inhabitants. It presents the work of important Nevada writers, in a variety of disciplines, and provides a useful forum for observations on current affairs. As such it deserves, and will undoubtedly receive, a wide audience and support from the Nevada reading public.”

Eric N. Moody, Nevada in the West Magazine

“That Nevada has come of age culturally and intellectually is evidenced by the quality of its new flagship literary journal, the Nevada Review. Replete with insightful and trenchant articles, interviews, and stories, the Nevada Review is a great new journal.”

Todd Borg, author of the Owen McKenna Tahoe Mystery Series

“As an editor of the state tourism publication for the past five years, and in doing quite a bit of traveling across the Silver State, I have come to learn how diverse Nevada’s lifestyles and landscapes truly are.  It is that diversity — captured brilliantly and intelligently in each edition of The Nevada Review — that makes our state special. The Nevada Review has a little bit of everything for the Nevada enthusiast.”
