Matt Tompkins’s new book, Souvenirs and Other Stories, officially launched last month in paperback format. Today, the ebook version officially goes live. Get the Kindle edition of Souvenirs here.
Matt’s book is a bizarre and surreal collection of stories. Beth Gilstrap, author of I Am Barbarella, says it’s “reminiscent of a quirky, yet lovable mixture of the likes of Harvey Pekar and Aimee Bender,” and Christopher Kennedy, author of Ennui Prophet, says this book is “a pleasure to read from cover to cover.”
To celebrate the ebook launch, we’re also unveiling the “Dis/appearances” theme, guest edited by Matt Tompkins. The “Dis/appearances” pieces will appear (pun intended) throughout the weekend. We’ll be posting one story per day beginning later today! Check back this evening to read the first piece.
Zach Powers has won the fifth annual BOA Editions Short Fiction Prize. Along with a $1,000 honorarium, Zach’s winning short story collection, Gravity Changes, will be published in 2017 by BOA Editions as part of the American Reader Series.
The final judge, Peter Conners, says “Zach Powers wields a unique talent for creating strange and surreal worlds that, somehow, illuminate true human emotion more realistically than the realest realist . . . It is an honor to award him the fifth annual BOA Short Fiction Prize.”
Congratulations to Zach on his winning manuscript! We’ll be sure to snag a copy of Gravity Changes when it hits shelves in 2017.
