Chester County Fiction

The Philly Fiction series has shown how Philadelphia is blessed with talented writers and interesting stories, but the blessings don't end at the city's borders. Last month, start-up publishing company Oermead Press released an edited compilation of sixteen short stories by authors who live and work in suburban Chester County. According to the publicity text, Chester County Fiction "includes stories about people in transition, struggling to find their place and peace in the community they live in. They are tales about love and loss, violence and heartbreak. The collection features brand new stories by: Virginia Beards, Jim Breslin, Robb Cadigan, Wayne Anthony Conaway, Peter Cunniffe, Michael Dolan, Ronald D. Giles, Terry Heyman, Joan Hill, Nicole Valentine, Jacob Asher Michael, Eli Silberman and Christine Yurick."

Oermead press is headed by writer and editor Jim Breslin, author of Elephant: Short Stories and Flash Fiction. Thanks to Jim and the other editors for bringing out more of the region's great short story offerings. They've even made a cool video about it, check it out:
