"Impressive...Scott, winner of the AWP Prize in the Novel, renders wonderfully offbeat characters in crisp, polished prose."
   -Booklist (starred review)

"Funny and smart...in Thea and those around her Scott has created characters we believe in and wish well, characters who feel real -strange and sad and happy, like real people are."
  -Publishers Weekly (starred review, "Pick of the Week")

    

Our titles are available online through Amazon.com and spdbooks.org.

Just want to say that I love all the info on this blog. That is all.

I would love to read this and many of your other books, but for many reasons (I'm frequently on the road and must travel light; I have poor eyesight and need to be able to adjust font size; I'm a starving writer who can't afford to spend more than a few dollars on a book) I almost exclusively read ebooks...and I can never find any New Issues books for my Kindle.

Yes, yes, I know the arguments about the tactility of "real" books and the beauty of the design and so forth, and I don't disagree that a physical book is an object of beauty. However, even more valuable than the prettiness of a book is the actual literary content inside its pages, which can be made available to far more people when books are also offered in electronic format.

New Issues, please consider expanding your reach. I know that formatting poetry for ebooks is a challenge (depending on the poet's style), but at least PLEASE offer your wonderful fiction in electronic format in addition to your traditional hardcovers. Thank you!!
