The Best Small Fictions 2015 - Available Now

Today is the official publication day for The Best Small Fictions 2015. I’m honored that Pulitzer Prize-winner Robert Olen Butler has selected my story “The Boy and the Bear” for inclusion in The Best Small Fictions 2015, an anthology that includes stories from Ron Carlson, Diane Williams, Stuart Dybek, Bobbie Ann Mason, Michael Martone, Hiromi Kawakami, Kelly Cherry, and many other amazing writers. I am beyond thrilled at this news! The anthology is available to purchase now if you'd like a copy. Thanks as well to series editor Tara L. Masih!

By way of recognition, "The Boy and the Bear" first appeared in The Masters Review, and I can't thank Kim Winternheimer enough for originally publishing this story. I also want to thank Black Lawrence Press Executive Editor Diane Goettel and Chapbook Editor Kit Frick because "The Boy and the Bear" is collected in my chapbook Families Among Us, winner of the 2013 Black River Chapbook Competition and published by BLP in September 2014. More news to come! Thanks for reading!
