Preorder The Same Terrible Storm

You can now preorder Sheldon Lee Compton’s debut story collection The Same Terrible Storm, forthcoming from Foxhead Books. Here’s what a couple of other writers we’re fans of had to say about it:

Sheldon Lee Compton writes stories like his mind is on fire. These are tales of the down but never out the hard livers who are touched by a grace and dignity that more polite characters wouldn’t deign to achieve. This is a testament to the best kind of fiction today — writing from the gut. It’s a hell of a debut and one that promises another rough but true voice from the South.

~ Charles Dodd White


Sheldon Compton is disguised as a mere writer. He’s really a wizard of the word, and The Same Terrible Storm is filled with the kind of story-alchemy other writers can only hope for. Smart without being pretentious, portentous without being heavy, these stories can sing you comfortably to sleep on those dark nights of the soul. Get this book.
