STONERISE: An anthology of nine dramatic and entertaining literary short stories by award-winning author Eric E. Wallace (UNDERTOW; HOAR FROST). Could your memories keep you alive? What would it take to make you climb a mountain? Could you be happy living in complete poverty? To what extremes might you go to protect your privacy? What might you learn while working inside a gorilla suit? Filled with highly-evocative settings, unusual juxtapositions and remarkable characters, the diverse stories of STONERISE touch on important themes—including grief, love, mortality, obsession and memory. Eric Wallace's distinctive literary voice is sometimes lyrical, sometimes ironic, sometimes quietly-humorous. And always engaging. "Such gorgeous prose! (His) writing flows with authority in its language and with characters so richly rounded, so soulful." - Toasted Cheese Literary Journal.
