About Liam Callanan's Listen & Other Stories:

Liam Callanan, author of the critically acclaimed novels The Cloud Atlas and All Saints, returns with a short story collection that crosses decades, oceans and continents in pursuit of stories that, like its title suggests, are more than worthy of a listen.

Liam Callanan is the author of Listen & Other Stories, a story collection published by Four Way Books in 2015, as well as the novels The Cloud Atlas, a finalist for an Edgar Award, and All Saints, a Target Bookmarked Breakout book. A frequent public radio essayist, Liam has taught at the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee and in the Warren Wilson MFA Program for Writers. Born in Washington, DC, and raised in Los Angeles, he now calls Wisconsin home.

About Paul Otremba's Pax Americana:

The poems in Pax Americana are born out of the violent, fractious, and disillusioning opening to the 21st century. The decade of protracted wars and economic collapse—coupled with the polarizing of wealth and ideologies in this country—create the catalysts for this book. These are social poems that want to talk, and through talking hopefully make a space where people can meet and find meaning in each other.

Paul Otremba is the author of two poetry collections, Pax Americana (Four Way Books 2015) and The Currency (Four Way Books 2009). He earned his MFA from the University of Maryland and a PhD in creative writing and literature from the University of Houston. Otremba is currently an Assistant Professor of English at Rice University in Houston, TX. Otremba has published widely in journals including the Kenyon Review, New England Review, Literary Imagination, and Witness. He has received scholarships and a fellowship from the Bread Loaf Writers’ Conference, a Barthelme Memorial Fellowship, a Krakow Poetry Seminar Fellowship, and a prize from the Academy of American Poets.
