Please Stay on the Trail: A Collection of Colorado Fiction
Black Ocean, 2006 - Fiction - 131 pages
Fiction. PLEASE STAY ON THE TRAIL: A COLLECTION OF COLORADO FICTION collects 10 stories from 10 of the state's most invigorating contemporary voices. This book was designed to showcase the rich writing talent located in the state, and the selected stories highlight a variety of short fiction formats. Six of the ten authors collected have previously published or forthcoming full length books. The authors range in accomplishment; from Denver's Poet Laureate, Chris Ransick, to Alison Flowers-a recent graduate of Regis University's undergraduate degree program. Editor Matthew Hudson writes: "More than twenty Colorado universities and colleges teach fiction writing, several of which publish their own highly regarded literary journals...I never found a collection like this, and when I didn't, I did some research and decided to create one." PLEASE STAY ON THE TRAIL is a finalist for a 2007 Colorado Book Award in the anthology/collection category.
