East of the Sun and West of Fort Smith, a collection of short fiction written by William Sanders, is massive. Twenty-seven stories massive, and proof to me that Sanders doesn't get near enough publicity. The man can flat out write, as I'm sure folks who've read his works can already attest to; I don't know whether to be embarrassed at only recently discovering this fact, or elated that with this book I didn't have to hunt down all his short stories. Norilana Books has gathered together all of his previously collected short works as well as a few previously unseen originals here, and in all honesty there's not a bad one in the bunch. Some may be stronger than others, but at the risk of repeating myself, they're all good. I'll look at a few of the shorts a little more in depth below, but there's way too many for me to include them all.

From official release/information:

From Publisher's website: East Of The Sun And West Of Fort Smith is the definitive short fiction collection by award-winning author William Sanders which combines in one volume all of his previously collected short work in addition to several previously unseen originals.

He is as two-time winner of the Sidewise Award for Alternate History and a multiple finalist for the Oklahoma Book Award, the Nebula, the Hugo, the Theodore Sturgeon, and the John W. Campbell Award. He is the senior editor of speculative fiction magazine Helix and lives in Oklahoma.
