Digital Flannerys -- and paperback editions

Ha Jin’s story collection UNDER THE RED FLAG – which won the Flannery in 1996 – will be available in a Kindle edition by the end of the year; the press is also planning on other digital editions, to be available from both libraries and booksellers.

If you’re hot to read digital stories right this second, a Kindle edition is available for Anne Panning’s SUPER AMERICA, and Margot Singer’s THE PALE OF SETTLEMENT will be available soon.

As noted by the American Book Review, “The University of Georgia Press's Flannery O'Connor Award has released some of the most challenging and rewarding short fiction of the last three decades, publishing more than fifty collections since the award's inception in 1983.” In further celebration of more than a quarter century of great short stories, we are making much of our backlist of winning titles available in paperback.
