Now he returns with this inaugural Zig-Zag across the Americas - with six of his own short stories that veer geographically from the Portland waterfront to the Chicago stockyards, from the wilds of Manitoba to a lonely chain of islands off the coast of Brazil and ranging in tone from the suspenseful to the comic.In the grand tradition of 19th century journals, he has recruited talented poets, humorists, and musicians to bring even more weight and variety to the proceedings - and also ten fine artists to illustrate the resulting stories, poems, cartoons, and essays - all with the express purpose of hearkening to an earlier era of American journals that delights and entertains!Illustrated by: Glen Chadbourne, Thaddeus Lyford, David Hunter, Bruce Rosenberger, Jeff Suntala, Barbara Neeson, Michael Neno, Randy Sargent, Stephen Prescott and Joe Zierman.
