Each week, I feature a young and/or emerging writer by posting a review of his or her most recent work.  To further showcase the writer’s work, I include an interview or a link to an interview a day or two after the review post.   I’m going to start posting short bios and links to sample work by the featured writer in order to up the wattage on the spotlight.

Kyle MinorThis Thursday, I’ll be reviewing Kyle Minor‘s first collection of short stories, In the Devil’s Territory.  From the book jacket: “Kyle Minor’s work has appeared widely in magazines and anthologies, among them Best American Mystery Stories 2008, The Southern Review, The Gettysburg Review, Surreal South, and Twentsomething Essays by Twentysomething Writers: The Best New Voices of 2006.  His work has been twice nominated for the Pushcart Prize. [He] is also co-editor, with Okla Elliot, of The Other Chekhov.”
