New Rivers Press pleased to announce the Many Voices Project winner in Prose, Gary Peter. His short story collection, Oranges, will join the other titles on our 2018 publication list. 

Of this short story collection, MVP judge, Jim Sallis says: “There’s a great deal to admire in Oranges. Ground-control matters like clean, economical writing, strong characters, vivid scenes. Effective shifts in tense and point of view. Fine evocations of emotions in all their mutability. The structure itself, giving us the stuff and heft of a novel along with the freshness and renewed engagement of short stories. Strikingly, the effortless way the writer traces lineaments of past ever flowing into present, present forever washing back into past: memory becoming anticipation; anticipation, memory.”
