A Conversation with Robert Garner McBrearty

McBrearty.

The Western Lonesome Society has been described as a surreal western. Some of it feels distinctly historical, while other parts of the story have a dream-like quality. What inspired you to create multiple narratives in one story?  I love that question.  To explain it, I really have to go back in time a bit, fifteen […]

“The Church of E”–from THE ANTICHRIST OF KOKOMO COUNTY

Inside the Lawrence P. Fenwick Building are many unexceptional businesses. An unexceptional tailor, for instance, plies his trade unexceptionally on the fourth floor, while on the floor beneath him an unexceptional travel agent helps send her unexceptional clientele to unexceptional locations for what can only be unexceptional vacations. On the sixth floor is the United […]

Frankie Horvath is not happy. He’s almost forty. He’s fat. His wife is dead. He designs forks for a living. And his son?

When confronting the unique horrors of the Holocaust, several writers have found that the only way to truthfully convey the experience is via fiction and myth. The […]

Some of These Days

Some of These Days

“Intimate, honest, fresh and funny, with a touch of rue–these are the words of critics praising Robert King’s latest collection of poems Some of These Days. The Greeley poet’s latest collection has depth, but is delightfully approachable… In ‘At Fifteen,’ a recounted heartbreak is remembered for its youthful wallowing in the deliciousness of so much emotion.” […]

Let the Birds Drink in Peace

Each of Robert Garner McBrearty’s stories has its own sensibility, but what his characters share is a desire to know how best to live when confronted by unforeseeable chance. Here readers will meet budding writers, ailing professors, reluctant gunslingers, and kidnapped kids; they grapple with conflicts of conscience and the mysteries of love. McBrearty excels […]

A Return to Emptiness

A Colorado Book Award finalist, A Return to Emptiness is a collection of short stories about life, loss, and love. In Ransick’s words, “Loss is common to us all, yet multifarious in individual experience.
