SHOOTING CREEK AND OTHER STORIES (Down&Out Books)

“This excellent collection transcends any genre label. Ultimately, these stories are mysteries of the human heart’s darkest regions. Scott Sanders is the real deal and deserves a wide and appreciative readership.” –Ron Rash, New York Times bestselling author and winner of the Frank O’Connor International Short Story Award

“Each story is a gem in this dark, atmospheric, treasure box of a collection.  Scott Loring Sanders digs deep and peers unflinching into the frail, twisted human heart, revealing its many facets and glittering truths. A stellar collection!”Lisa Unger, New York Times bestselling author of The Red Hunter

“In Shooting Creek and Other Stories, you’ll find ne’er-do-well husbands, drunken fathers, tough-as-nails women and mothers, and murderously unfaithful wives in a rogue’s gallery of dangerous characters in bad situations. These are stories that will keep you up late reading and thinking, stories that mute the concerns of the everyday world while turning up the volume on thrills and excitement.  This is a collection that will fire the imagination while raising moral and ethical issues, which is the true heart of Scott Sanders’s fiction.” –Ed Falco, author of the New York Times bestselling The Family Corleone

“Scott Loring Sanders’s stories are always rich in atmosphere, and his characters are often presented with difficult moral dilemmas. He’s an author who prefers a degree of ambiguity to an easy resolution, and that makes his work thought-provoking, as well as unpredictable. Readers in search of well-written, complex suspense tales won’t go wrong with a Sanders collection! ” – Janet Hutchings, Editor-in-Chief, Ellery Queen’s Mystery Magazine

“These are landscapes filled with beauty and secrets and heartache that we could have never imagined. But their hold on these complex characters is real, and touching. Herein lies the strength of Sanders’s gift and why this is a book that should not only be read, but pondered and talked about.” – Arts Fuse, the Arts Magazine of Boston  To read the entire, comprehensive review from Arts Fuse, click here 

“Shooting Creek and Other Stories captivates…with fully imagined characters, devious situations, and sly solutions that usually come with a twist. The plots…are enough to keep you turning pages, but the way Sanders delves deep into the human psyche and unflinchingly portrays flawed characters with dignity will leave you thinking about them long after you set the book down.”– Virginia Living Magazine (featured book for Sep/Oct issue)
