Andrew Forbes writes with precision and power. His stories often take an intimate and unique look at relationships, families, and friendships. And usually at moments when things seem as though they’re ready to come apart. That’s when Andrew is at his best—when he’s navigating characters (and us) through their troubles, desires, mistakes and loyalties.
Little Fiction has posted a preview of upcoming books by past and future LF contributors on their tumblr, and I’m pleased to have What You Need included. Troy Palmer, the brains behind LF, is a champion for both short stories and the folks who write them, as you can probably infer from that wonderful blurb up there that he wrote. Also mentioned are books by Lee Kvern, Eliza Robertson, Shawn Syms, Leesa Cross-Smith, Andrew Sullivan, and Kevin Hardcastle — all good folks whose books you should seek out when they’re available.
