A killer short-story collection
—Atlanta Journal Constitution
Twenty-six tales tightrope between defined and
amorphous states, while characters go to extremes to test their agendas and circumstances both ordinary and bizarre . . . The breadth of the selected tales creates a satisfying and often enthralling collection that perfectly celebrates Ecotone’s first decade.
Astoria to Zion is a dazzling literary showcase of veterans and new voices that offers all readers have come to expect from Ecotone. While conjuring and exploring wildly varied places, this collection stakes out a stellar one of its own.
—Jill McCorkle, author of Life After Life
I started to say what a stellar and concentrated selection of
stories compose this fine book, stories full of all of our hope and
danger and unease, but I’m just going to offer this simple note: this is
a book I’ll hand to my friends when they want to know where the short
story is thriving.
—Ron Carlson, author of Return to Oakpine
