"A sense of mastery." The New York Stories. And a much appreciated review from The Atticus Review.

Quite appreciated. And much appreciation to the Chris Tarry as well. Excerpt? Word.

"The New York Stories is a three volume set, each published as separate books across a span of nearly nine years and because of this, the book builds a wonderful grand arc, narrative hindsight in a way that allows the whole thing to function as a story greater than the sum of its parts. We see not only the long protracted march of Two Rivers and its inhabitants, but, because of the time between when the volumes were written, the development of Tanzer as a fierce and world-class writer. This development is a beautiful thing to watch."

We hope you enjoy this edition and we appreciate all shout-outs and links. Finally, please note, we are hoping more of you will submit comix, and music, novel excerpts, and art, and video, yes, video, and combinations there of. And most finally, the NFL Draft, here, now, for real.

The New York Stories is awesome blurb from the endlessly awesome Leesa Cross-Smith.

"Ben Tanzer's stories are both familiar and surprising, a scarf and a knife. Stories full of people we know, love. People we don't want to know, don't want to love. Stories full of desire and sadness and almost. Stories over beers and tequila, stories inside sex and storms. Ben! He is one of my favorites for all sorts of reasons and one of those reasons is yes and another is hell yes." --Leesa Cross-Smith, author of Every Kiss A War

And more to come. Not to mention more information at CCLaP for those who want it.
