"Short Story America is like opening a window on a blooming spring garden following a long cold winter. I've been deeply impressed by  the quality and diversity of the fictional voices found on this glorious site, as this first anthology so splendidly reveals. Here's to a long life and much more to come from the current and future voices of Short Story America." 

-- Jim Dodson, editor, PineStraw and O.Henry magazines, and bestselling author of Final Rounds and Faithful Travelers 

“There is something so delicious – so intense and immediate – about a good short story. If a novel is a dense layer cake, to be savored over time, the short story is a square of rich, bittersweet chocolate. In our hectic, busy age, a well-made literary 'snack' is a fine thing, indeed. This anthology – extraordinary in both quality and diversity – represents a long overdue re-commitment to this uniquely satisfying art form. Bravo!”

-- Margaret Evans, editor and columnist, Lowcountry Weekly

“Short Story America is literary fiction at its best!" 

-- Myra King, author, winner of the Global Short Story Prize
