October 2012

Congratulations to word~river contributor Kevin P. Keating! We are happy to learn that Kevin P. Keating’s book, The Natural Order of Things, will be published on November 30, 2012 by Aqueous Books. The book, comprised of 15 interconnected stories, is properly thought of as a novel in the tradition of Sherwood Anderson’s Winesburg, Ohio or John Steinbeck’s The Pastures of Heaven—but with a gothic sensibility. The novel concerns the adventures and exploits of a small group of students, teachers, employees, and priests at a Jesuit prep school in a dying industrial city. [Read More.] Keating, whose work appeared in word~river in 2009 and 2012, teaches English at a Cleveland-area college. His fiction and essays have also appeared publications including The Mad Hatter’s Review, The Avatar Review, The Spillway Review, The North Coast Review, The Fifth Street Review, The Midwest Literary Review, The Bicycle Review, Juked, Perigee, Exquisite Corpse, Inertia, Identity Theory, and many others.
