FICTION / Short Stories
Nathaniel G. Moore follows up his 2014 ReLit Award win for Savage with a diverse collection of short fiction, his first, Jettison, featuring stories which dangle somewhere between horror and romance. "Jaws" explores a father's desire to over-share the erotic origins of his children's "Aunt" Louise; "Blade Runner" uncovers the darkest and most hilarious aspects of dating by delineating the psych ward politics surrounding a male mental patient with five girlfriends who takes apart his bed when they visit; in "A Higher Power," readers are introduced to a brave woman in recovery who shares a story about a time when all she could think about was Prime Minister Paul Martin and would do anything to crash charity dance-a-thons he might be attending; in "Son of Zodiac," Moore captures the ache of a life-spanning meltdown in the painfully polite confessions of a man who believes his father was the Zodiac Killer. Be grateful as you witness a portrait of vulgar torment when a young woman is given an English professor action figure for Christmas ("Professor Buggles"). Each of these stories is an all-inclusive getaway to hilarity and emotional atonement. Jettison is an all-you-can-eat buffet of literary invention: you'll be so glad you got an invite. Praise for Jettison: "wickedly fun to read" (Winnipeg Free Press)

Nathaniel G. Moore is the author of several books including, most recently, Jettison, and Savage 1986-2011 (Anvil Press), winner of the 2014 ReLit Award for best novel. His writing has appeared in subTerrain, Canadian Literature, Joyland, Taddle Creek, The Berkeley Review, This Magazine, and PRISM International. He lives on BC's Sunshine Coast with his partner and daughter and works as a book publicist.
