Things Kept, Things Left Behind, by Jim Tomlinson

Check him out! Jim Tomlinson‘s Iowa Short Fiction Award winning collection, Things Kept, Things Left Behind, is now available for order (even though it’s not yet released).

Off the top of my head, I can think of two compelling reasons why you’ll want to get your hands on this book:

1. I’ve yet to read an Iowa Short Fiction Award collection that I didn’t thoroughly enjoy
2. Jim kicks some serious writerly ass and you should read his stories.

If you don’t want to just take my word for it, read his story Flights, which was in the issue of SmokeLong for which I was a guest editor.
