Andrea Lewis, the Issue 10 author of Vellum, has a new book out with Indiana University Press. It is a collection of linked stories, called What My Last Man Did.
“Following generations of one family across nearly a century, each of Andrea Lewis’s intertwined, engaging short stories evokes an intense sense of place and time, from New Orleans in 1895 to Grand Isle, Louisiana, during the hurricane of 1901 and on to London during the Olympic Games of 1948. The people in these ten vivid tales face tragedy and real-world catastrophic events—war, hurricanes, the Great Depression, racial tension—in their pursuit of love, family, and belonging.” –Indiana University Press.
One reviewer wrote “Andrea Lewis’s linked stories about Hannah Delgado and her family’s “frayed skein of love” may make you fall in love with both a new writer and the fictional family she’s created.”
Andrea Lewis’s stories, essays and prose poems have appeared in Prairie Schooner, Catamaran Literary Reader, Cutthroat, and many other literary journals. She lives with her husband, Wendell Tangborn, on Vashon Island, Washington. She is a founding member of Richard Hugo House, a place for writers in Seattle.

We love all the stories in our magazine, and choosing which ones to submit for prizes is like choosing between one’s children. But we only get to nominate six pieces for the Pushcart Prize, and this year’s nominees are:
- ‘Stalk’ by George McWhirter (Issue 9)
- ‘Taraxicum Officinale’ by Mary H Auerbach Rykov (Issue 9)
- ‘Uncanonical Murder’ by Carol Berg (Issue 10)
- ‘Vellum’ by Andrea Lewis (Issue 10)
- ‘How to Write a Successful Obituary for a Superhero’ by Matthew Hooton (Issue 11)
- ‘If You’d Like to Make a Call, Please Hang Up’ by Bob Thurber (Issue 12)
We have our fingers crossed and we wish these authors all the best of luck as we send their stories off.
To read these fine stories you can purchase all four digital versions of the 2016 issues for only $15 on the Something Novel Kickstarter (select the Digital Sampler). But hurry — only until 11pm today!
We’ll be officially releasing Pulp Literature Issue 10, Spring 2016, this coming Monday, April 11th. We would be delighted if you could join us at the Wolf & Hound to meet some of the authors and lift a glass or two to celebrate!
