Book Review: Maggie Brown & Others: Stories Author: Peter Orner Publisher: Little, Brown and Company Publication Date: July 2, Review Date: J From the blurb: “In this powerful and virtuosic collection of interlocking stories, a National Book Critics Circle Award finalist takes the form to new heights.   Bristling with the crackling energy of life itself, Maggie Brown & Others marks the most sustained achievement to date for "a master of his form" (New York Times). A New York Times Notable Book A Chicago Tribune Notable Book An Oprah Magazine Best Book of Kirkus Reviews Best Short Fiction of Longlisted for the Simpson/Joyce Carol /5(4).

  "The stories in Peter Orner's Maggie Brown & Others feel eternally human, less like they've been written and rather like they've been drawn by patient hands from an ancient aquifer of memory, longing, and soulful knowing."— Adam Johnson, author of Pulitzer Prize winner The Orphan Master's Son and National Book Award winner Fortune SmilesAuthor: Peter Orner. Here is a list of all of the authors of the Spirit Animals series. Brandon Mull is the author of Wild Born, and the short stories'Fall of the Four' and'Betrayal' that were included in Tales of the Great Beasts and Tales of the Fallen Beasts (respectively). He was the one to design most of Erdas and write out most of the main storyline to the books. Spirit Animal: Dolphin Maggie Stiefvater is.

Let me just say this book is quite well done. Maggie Brown writes a story that just sweeps you away. You literally are thrown into Australia and through Brown’s words you are chased by the crocodiles, you feel the oppressive humidity, you are right there with the characters as they face countless perilous situations. Ironically, given Orner’s dedication to short-short fiction, he ends Maggie Brown & Others with a page novella, “Walt Kaplan Is Broke.” Granted, some of the chapters are very brief, almost resembling prose poems, and Orner tries hard to give the fading industrial town of Fall River, Massachusetts, some mythological sheen.
