Among the Dead and Dreaming is a dark love story of damaged people, brought together by present tragedy and past violence. Wonderland is a picture book for adults, full of tales as dark and absurd as they are playful, poignant and true.
In Whiskey, Etc., it’s the particulars that draw you closer—the stained coffee cups, curled-up dogs, wood–burning stoves and canoes snug in their sheds—to a muddled loneliness housed behind crystalline windows. To follow Sherrie Flick’s cowboy–possum saunter across these dazzling short (short) stories is to visit life, desperate and languid and dolefully funny, where it happens.
Sherrie Flick is the author of the novel Reconsidering Happiness, the flash fiction chapbook I Call This Flirting, and the new short story collection Whiskey, Etc. Her work has appeared in many anthologies and journals, including Norton's Flash Fiction Forward and New Sudden Fiction. She serves as fiction editor for Burnside Review, teaches in the MFA and Food Studies programs at Chatham University, and is co-director of the Chautauqua Writers' Festival.
Samuel Ligon is the author of two novels—Among the Dead and Dreaming and Safe in Heaven Dead—and two collections of stories, Wonderland, illustrated by Stephen Knezovich, and Drift and Swerve. He edits the journal Willow Springs, teaches at Eastern Washington University in Spokane, and is the artistic director of the Port Townsend Writers’ Conference.
