Ebook FlightsFlight No. 1
Just like a flight of wine, these books go together
If you’re flying from, say, JFK to Dulles, you might just purchase one flight in the series. But if you’re going all the way to LAX, you can dig into all three.
Flight No. 1 features stories that explore how we understand the boundaries between communities. They’re like fables, seemingly fantastical at first, but then feel increasingly familiar to those of us who perceive the disruptions inherent in modern reality.
“The concept of an e-book flight is, from a reading standpoint, brilliant: the pairing of novellas and story collections with similar themes is entertaining, but it makes a reader pay a special kind of attention to craft, ideas, and the overall atmosphere of the works at hand.” —The Collagist
