Please Stay on the Trail:

A Collection of Colorado Fiction

compiled and edited by Matt Hudson ’00 (Black Ocean)


This showcase of short stories and novel chapters offers a sample of Colorado’s writing terrain. In 2005, the book’s editor asked for submissions from writers groups, small publishers and more than 20 Colorado colleges and universities.

The selections here include pieces by Denver Poet Laureate Chris Ransick, winner of the 2005 Colorado Authors’ League Award for Fiction and the 2003 Colorado Book Award for Poetry, and Mark Hummel, who teaches creative writing at the University of Northern Colorado.
