A Plug: Extinct & Extinguished Named to "Best of" List
27 Mar 2016
In belated and semi-self-promotional news, the anthology [Ex]tinguished & [Ex]tinct: An Anthology of Things that No Longer [Ex]ist was named as one of Chicago Book Review's "Best Books of 2015." They also reviewed the anthology.
One of my stories is in the book, so I'm obviously biased here. But I think this is pretty cool, given how hard it is for a literary anthology to get any legit critical attention. Chicago Book Review does great work covering indie presses and Chicago-related authors and titles, so I would encourage you to check them out.
The anthology was edited by John McCarthy and published by Twelve Winters Press (run by Ted Morrissey). It centers on a compelling theme, and McCarthy and colleagues interpreted “extinguished and extinct” in broad terms, going beyond the ecological in directions you might not anticipate but will likely enjoy. McCarthy discusses his vision for the anthology here. If you're interested, you can pick up the anthology in paper ($14) or digital ($6) form here.
