My good friend Colin Winnette has had some great (and deserved) success publishing recently.

First, his animal story collection Animal Collection will be released by Spork Press on 8 September. To celebrate, “there will be a big release party in Tucson with Amelia Gray and some paint-by-numbers artist or something.” Then Colin will tour with that book in California.

Then, in early 2013, Atticus Books will release two novellas by Colin, Gainesville and In One Story, The Two Sisters. This collection will be called A Long Line of Diggers and its official release party will be at AWP Boston (6–9 March 2013).

I love Colin and I love his writing. In particular, I consider Gainesville one of the best recent works of fiction I’ve read, and it will be my pleasure to write more about all of this in the coming days and months. Meanwhile, Colin’s first book, Revelation (2012), remains available through Mutable Sound.

Congratulations, Colin!!

Mr. Winnette.

Which is “his retelling of the popular bible story about the end of the world. However, in Winnette’s version, the end of the world is a mundane affair that goes unnoticed by his protagonists.”

Colin’s a friend of mine whose writing I really admire. I’ve read two other manuscripts of his, both excellent, leaving me very excited about this new one… You can read a bit more about him in this Mutable post and at his website.

Also, Colin is currently on tour with the poet Benjamin Clark. The schedule is here; I’ll post the remaining dates below. (The last two readings will be in Chicago.)

Congratulations, Colin!
