This year’s Tartt Winner!

This year’s Tartt First Fiction Award Winner is John Shea’s The Verminous Resuscitator and the Monsignor in the Zoot Suit: Tales from Webster’s. The collection uses sequential entries from a dictionary to construct each story. And each word’s entry is limited to three lines in length. The collection will come out next June, 2017.


While our regular June reading period is over, we will be reading for the thirteenth Tartt First Fiction Award. The deadline comes on the last day of December, ever year.


And . . . we are extending our June reading period for one special item! If you’ve squirreled away a novel written in any formal verse form, don’t despair, for we’d like to discover it. We are looking for a literary novel written in this form, either comic or tragicomic or tragic, or . . .
