The Believer Logger interviewed 3:AM‘s Andrew Gallix:
The whole point of 3:AM was to foster a community of literary loners; to create a space where we can be alone together. [...] There is no party line, although we are rather contrarian, hence our tagline (a nod to Groucho Marx, the Ramones, and Adorno): “Whatever it is, we’re against it.” It sounds rather pedantic, I know, but what I consider to be real literature is always, at some level, a writing against itself. 3:AM is a very broad anti-church. Personally, I think we should publish fiction that has the inevitability of death.
