- Finalist, Short Stories (Adult Fiction)
The interconnected stories in Texas 5X5 share characters, a Texas setting, imagery, or style. Many share direct plot connections. Reminiscent of a story cycle by a single author, the fictional pieces of this composite anthology by five of the best writers in the Lone Star State resonate with meaning built up across, as well as within, the individual works. The result is a new and unique kind of reading experience.
