In April of 2014 and July of 2013, Apex Magazine published reprints of a pair of short stories by an author named Kelly Link: “The Faery Handbag” and “The Constable of Abal.”  Now we are proud to celebrate a great achievement of hers.  Link’s collection of short stories, Get in Trouble: Stories, placed as a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize! Kelly Link has now written four award winning books, along with 9 award winning short stories.

We had the opportunity in 2014 to interview her, and she had several exciting tidbits for us!  If you want insight into her own creative process and thinking, I highly recommend reading the interview.

If you want to know more about Get in Trouble: Stories, here is the book blurb:

Hurricanes, astronauts, evil twins, bootleggers, Ouija boards, iguanas, The Wizard of Oz, superheroes, the Pyramids . . . These are just some of the talismans of an imagination as capacious and as full of wonder as that of any writer today. But as fantastical as these stories can be, they are always grounded by sly humor and an innate generosity of feeling for the frailty—and the hidden strengths—of human beings. In Get in Trouble, this one-of-a-kind talent expands the boundaries of what short fiction can do.

Congratulations to Kelly Link! We’re proud to know her as a friend and a writer.
