Collected Short Fiction of John William Corrington
John William Corrington (1932 - 1988) was a noted poet, novelist and dramatist, a winner of a National Endowment for the Arts Award in Fiction. His works of short fiction were published in prominent literary journals and they have been selected for inclusion in numerous anthologies including the O. Henry Award Stories and three editions of Best American Short Stories. In "Risking the Bait," an article that appeared in The Southern Review shortly after Corrington's death, William Mills wrote, "I suspect that the surest bet for that which will endure in Bill's work, and I am speaking of the level of achievement of our finest writers, will be his stories. These stories, collectively, can match anything that has been written by his generation." Corrington published four books of short fiction in his lifetime but all are now out of print and unavailable to readers. The Collected Short Fiction of John William Corrington collects and republishes in a two volume set all of his works of short fiction.
