Portland, OR, April 29, 2020 --(PR.com
)-- Unsolicited Press announced immediate availability of "Peripheral Visions and Other Stories" by Nancy Christie. What do you do when the hand that life deals you isn’t the one you wanted? In Peripheral Visions and Other Stories, the characters choose to play the best game they can with the cards they’ve received. For some, it’s making the most of the circumstances in which they find themselves, even if it’s not the life they planned. For others, it’s following an unconventional path—not the easiest course or the one that others would take, but the one that’s right for them. But they never lose hope that life will get better if they can just hold on.
"Peripheral Visions and Other Stories" won second place in the Florida Writers Association 2018 Royal Palm Literary Awards (RPLA) competition, with three of the stories having also earned contest placements.
Advance Praise for "Peripheral Visions and Other Stories"
“Nancy Christie’s stories are the dichotomy of youth and age, of experience and memory, of harmony and friction, of life and death. They are old relations. To read Peripheral Visions and Other Stories is to carefully sort through a found box of dusty photographs, to answer old questions and discover new ones. This book brings you closer to your own family.” -Lee L. Krecklow, author of The Expanse Between
“Nancy Christie’s stories open up worlds that exist just off to the side of the ordinary one we all inhabit, reinvigorating the reader’s senses by revealing what we often don’t see in the peripheries of our vision.” -Christopher Barzak, author of Wonders of the Invisible World
“Some of the best of modern short story fiction… She engages the reader from the start and whether with gentle humour or deep sadness, imbues her stories with emotion. This collection provides a thoroughly satisfying read.” -Rosemary J. Kind, Managing Director, Alfie Dog Fiction
