Bookslinger Update: “Deadheading”

The Bookslinger app has been updated with a new story!

This week’s story is from Grind by Mark Maynard, published by Torrey House Press. Convicts round up wild mustangs, a schizophrenic homeless man wins the jackpot and disappears, a truck driver with a child’s mind spends his last hours in the embrace of a prostitute’s photos—disparate and vivid, Mark Maynard’s characters intersect in the new wild west of Reno, Nevada.

“Throughout the volume’s eight tenuously linked tales, lives and fortune are lost, and the city of Reno emerges as a locus of shattered souls. Maynard’s debut collection bursts with idiosyncratic characters…packs a strong emotional punch…is strangely entertaining.”
—Publishers Weekly

Bookslinger Update: “The Legend’s Daughter”

The Bookslinger app has been updated with a new story!

This week’s story is from The Legend’s Daughter by David Kranes, published by Torrey House Press. The stories in The Legend’s Daughter inhabit present-day Idaho where fires, streams, and landscapes ask–even demand–that individuals reconsider and reorient their lives. An award-winning playwright, David Kranes infuses this collection with swift dialogue and complicated characters, including a kayaking actor, a rebellious high school teacher, and a lipstick-loving fly fisherman.

Bookslinger Update: “Persuasion”

The Bookslinger app has been updated with a new story!

This week’s story is from Recapture by Erica Olsen, published by Torrey House Press. The Utah Canyons WildMall gives tourists exactly what they want. An archivist preserves a rare map of a vanished Lake Tahoe. The Grand Canyon can only be visited in replica form. These stories—lyrical, deadpan, surreal—blur the line between the natural world and the world we make.
