An Anthology of New Fiction

Crossing all genres, this collection of works by twelve authors provides a transliterary snapshot of various trends and practices in North American fictioneering. What is a 'story', and how can it be told? These concerns are reflected in pieces both unexpected and traditional. From photo-collage homolinguistic translation to speculative dystopian narrative to historical remembrance, here are works that use haunting and poetic language, humour, irony, gothic elements and documentary style to take the reader on unexpected voyages.
