About this Item

First printing, October 2010. Green and black wraps in zig-zag design. 192 pages. Black & white illustrations by various artists: Jeff Suntala, Bruce Rosenberger, Glen Chadbourne, Thaddeus Lyford, David Hunter, Barbara Neeson, Michael Neno, Randy Sargent. ~ In fine, clean, unused condition, and inscribed by Van Reid on the title page: "Best Zig-Zagian Wishes! From Maine and the Moosepath! --Van Reid." ~~ Van Reid is the author of the successful and charmingly nostalgic series of novels about the Moosepath League, set in 19th-century Maine. From the back cover: "Van Reid's picaresque novels . . . have garnered loyal fans and warm reviews (including a New York Times Notable Book of the Year) with their unique mixture of adventure, romance, and laugh-out-loud humor. Now he returns with this inaugural 'Zig-Zag' across the Americas--with six of his own short stories that veer geographically from the Portland waterfront to the Chicago stockyards, from the wilds of Manitoba to a lonely chain of islands off the coast of Brazil and ranging in tone from the suspenseful to the comic. In the grand tradition of 19th century journals, he has recruited talented poets, humorists, and musicians to bring even more weight and variety to the proceedings--and also ten fine artists to illustrate the resulting stories, poems, cartoons, and essays--all with the express purpose of hearkening to an earlier era of American journals that delight and entertain." Complete with a supernatural story, a Western, a story about pirates, as well as anecdotes and vignettes. Also contains an Ongoing Tale titled "Fustianne Mae (Part One)" which is to be continued in Volume Two. Two-column text formatting and nostalgic-style illustrations recreate the design of period literary periodicals. Includes biographical blurbs about each contributor. Fun and entertaining.
