    1. Steve Karas is one of my favorite authors. Mesogeios is a brief and beautiful chap published by the great folks at Whiskey Paper. It's five stories of existential longing, exploring how we far we can be from the people we are closest too. How far we can be from ourselves. It's a coming of age story focusing on the space between uncertainty and self-realization. This collection would have made Albert Camus smile.

    2. I've followed Steve's writing for a couple years now, and it was great to see two new pieces in here (one I believe was previously unpublished; the other I missed upon its original publication).

    3. Five amazing stories so full of beauty and grace and fascination and story you feel like you've read a lush, epic novel of Steve Karas greatness. Whiskey Paper makes stunning books. Most highly recommended.

I always think of this when reading Steve Karas' work. His st [...]

    5. My little press (WhiskeyPaper) published this and IT IS GOOD AND BEAUTIFUL AND YOU WILL LOVE IT. I am v. skilled @ knowing things like this, trust. xx
