PS Books, the books division of Philadelphia Stories free literary magazine, has released the second “Best of Philadelphia Stories Anthology” (ISBN 9780979335044).
The anthology highlights selected work published in the magazine and its Web site. The Philadelphia Inquirer called the first Philadelphia Stories Anthology a “collection that loves you back.”
Like the first volume, this second best-of anthology offers a wide selection of the literary voices that make Philadelphia so unique. Authors include doctors, lawyers, students, teachers, journalists, playwrights, and a detective – all talented writers who spend their precious free time honing their craft. James W. Morris (Regalia) grew up in Philadelphia and worked as a monologue writer for Jay Leno. David Sanders (School of Fishes) has been widely published and was the founder of the InterAct Theatre Company “Best of Philly” reading series. Ona Russell (The (O)ther Kahn) is the grand-neice of Philadelphia architect Louis Kahn; she is now working on her third Sarah Kaufman mystery. This is just a sampling of the many diverse voices featured in the second Philadelphia Stories anthology.
“We asked our board and our readers to select their favorites from the magazine and website, and this work is included in the anthology,” says Carla Spataro, co-publisher and fiction editor of Philadelphia Stories. “We’re really proud of the fact that we’ve published both first time authors and more established writers. The anthology pulls everything together in a really beautifully presented package. We’re proud of that, too.”
The Best of Philadelphia Stories Anthology: Volume 2 will be available for $13.95 at Amazon, all major bookstores, and www.psbookspublishing.com.
