New American Review is a publishing tool for new writers, lovingly provided by Authorlink Press. The purpose of the
periodical anthology is to help writers gain exposure to editors, agents, booksellers and readers. Each review has a different focus and is designed to be a quick read for todayís fast paced lifestyle.
Vol. I, No. I focuses on all things Southern. Divided into three parts ("Growing Up Southern,"
"Loving & Letting Go," and "Human Nature") are 12 stories that run the gamut of
Southern life. Each author's voice is distinctive and captivating. The well-drawn stories put you right in the midst of the action, whether itís the heat of Atlanta or the cold winters of Oklahoma.
The stories are fun and poignant at the same time, a winning blend. Authorlink Press accomplished
well their goal of making a fast-paced book -- the inaugural volume of the New
American Review is finished all too soon. Like other contemporary anthologies (Rebel Yell, etc.),
it introduces many very good writers. This and future issues, coming in November 2002 and March 2003,
are highly recommended.
