A Field Guide to Murder & Fly Fishing: Tim Weed’s new fiction collection

51bkcjkdvplGreetings everyone,

Pleased to announce the forthcoming (April 7, 2017) release by Green Writers Press of my new fiction collection, A Field Guide To Murder & Fly Fishing.  The book is available for pre-order, or, if you’re interested in writing a review, feel free to send me a note to request a free advance copy!

Here’s some of the advance praise, beginning with an excerpt of a review written by our very own Ron Samul:

“A Field Guide to Murder & Fly Fishing is more than a collection of adventure stories. It is a significant and moving collection of ideas, snapshots, and visions that leave a lasting impression . . . Never predictable, this collection is a must for travelers, adventure seekers, and anyone who cares to examine the depth of [Weed’s] varied and flawed characters.” —Ron Samul, We Are the Curriculum

“From the mountain lakes of the Colorado Rockies to cobbled streets of Spain, this fascinating collection of short stories by Vermont-based writer Tim Weed (Will Poole’s Island) never disappoints. The stories are more about choices than they are about fly fishing or murder, but time and again Weed’s vivid characters in these thirteen tales of dark adventure are forced to confront a vision of themselves—or others—that’s not quite as positive as they’d hoped . . . A Field Guide to Murder and Fly Fishing is a collection you’ll be happy to get lost in.” Julie Reiff, Ploughshares.

“In his first short story collection, novelist Tim Weed shows his stunningly impressive range—transporting readers from the heights of the Andes and the depths of the Amazon to the backstreets of Rome and Granada. Many of Weed’s stories have a hint of the mysterious, even the supernatural, but they are all grounded in sharply-rendered material worlds so fresh one feels one might step directly into the literary photographs he has created and stroll around for a while. A top-notch debut, not to be missed.”—Jacob Appel, author of Einstein’s Beach House

If you’re interested, you can read all about it here. And again, feel free to send me a note if you’d like to request a review copy!

Warm regards,
