About the Book
STONERISE, by award-winning writer Eric E. Wallace UNDERTOW; HOAR FROST), is an anthology of nine diverse literary short stories touching on important themes, including mortality, grief, memory, and love, and filled with unusual juxtapositions and remarkable characters.

In these stories, you'll meet people like:

ROYCE, a gym trainer obsessed with climbing a mountain even though he can't figure out the direction he wants to take his life...

JULIAN, a retiree who may have to go to extreme lengths to get just a little peace, quiet and privacy, even in the countryside...

CLINT, a photographer on an African safari, increasingly unhappy with the apparent docility and laziness of the wild animals...

LEAH, living in poverty and very happy with her life, but yearning for just one small thing...

ROBERT, a soldier in captivity, who uses his memory as a means of coping and perhaps of escape...

RACHEL, a young American tourist visiting England, who suddenly finds herself in the middle of upper-crust British society...

COLIN, ELIZABETH and a group of other neighborhood children in WWII Scotland, simply wanting a normal Halloween despite blackouts and air raids...

ELISE, who wears a gorilla suit to promote a new business but who's more and more focused on the lives of real gorillas...

FRANCINE, a highly-successful novelist, who decides to build a three-story stone tower by hand than write another bestseller...

The settings in these nine stories range from Maui, Hawaii to Glasgow, Scotland, from Southwestern Idaho to the Eastern Caribbean, from Tanzania to the Cotswolds.

Sometimes lyrical, sometimes ironic, sometimes quietly-humorous, Eric Wallace's distinctive voice is always engaging.

"Wallace’s stories made this reader fall in love with the short story form all over again."
--Shelley Carpenter, Reviews Editor, Toasted Cheese Literary Journal
