About this title:

Synopsis: Haslam divides the state into five regions, selecting prose and poetry from each that reflects their history, terrain, and culture. Many Califonias features sixty-seven authors ranging from Jack London to Maxine Hong Kingston, making it the most diverse general-interest anthology available.

 

 

From the Publisher: The second edition of this general interest anthology adds ten new authors and their works plus five new selections from some favorite writers. The new writers are Carolyn See, Victor Martinez, Gina Berriault, Al Young, Molly Giles, Ross Macdonald, Robert Hass, Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni, David Mas Masumoto, and Oakley Hall. The collection now contains 67 authors and their writings making MANY CALIFORNIAS one of the most ethnically, culturally, and gender diverse anthologies available.

Award-winning author and editor, Gerald W. Haslam, divides the state into five geo/literary regions, each of them reflecting regional frontiers with distinct terrains, patters of settlement, and literary outputs: The North Coast; The Great Central Valley; Wilderness California; Southern California; and Fantasy California, a region of the mind. All these Californias and other combine to produce literature that is varied and rich and controversial: many Californias.

Oildale native Gerald W. Haslam has published eight collections of short stories, including THAT CONSTANT COYOTE and CONDOR DREAMS.
