A couple of stories in today's Times features section survey aspects of the local literary scene. Lynell George's piece looks in on the three journals to start here recently: Black Clock, Swink and the Los Angeles Review. In a separate piece, Anne-Marie O'Connor visits with some of the current novelists using Los Angeles settings, a group that includes Nina Revoyr, Yxta Maya Murray and Janet Fitch. Both stories are behind the Calendar Live pay wall.
