WH Mentioned at the Collagist/ Dzanc Books Blog

Tim Horvath is not only a great editor, but a superb writer. His collection, Understories, is one of my favorite books of the year. In fact, it’s inspired an essay as it reminded me of an experience I had in university.

As some of you may know, I have a collection of short stories coming out soon (more on that in a future post as we are busily working on a trailer). Tim mentioned the book in his interview and I was honored by his words. Check out the great interview here!

Tieryas’s collection sprawls over a lot of space, geographically and thematically, but his specialty seems to be nascent relationships, which flicker in his stories like neon signs from which maybe a letter has been knocked out, so we read them while ever-reminded of what is missing. His writing is incredibly witty and intelligent, and science seems to find its way into most of his stories in thoroughly unexpected ways.
