The cover to the 2005 edition of "Grub Street".

The magazine is named after "Grub Street", a former street in London's impoverished Moorfields district. In the 18th and 19th centuries, the street was famous for its concentration of mediocre, impoverished 'hack writers', aspiring poets, and low-end publishers and booksellers, who existed on the margins of the journalistic and literary scene. Grub Street's bohemian, impoverished literary scene was set amidst the poor neighborhood's low-rent flophouses, brothels, and coffeehouses.

The popular horror novelist Ronald Malfi had published some of his early stories in Grub Street while attending Towson University.[1]
