Speaking of which....  There aren't many of the classic American
literary magazines left any more.  It used to be that every publisher
had one (to promote its authors); Ticknor and Fields (later Houghton
Mifflin) had /The Atlantic/, Harper & Brothers had /Harper's/, The
Century Company had /The Century Magazine/, S.S. McClure had
/McClure's/, Scribner had /Scribner's Magazine/, and so on.  (Only the
first two survived the Great Depression, and McClure's didn't even
last that long.)
