Wandering Realities: Mormonish Short Fiction

Product rating: 5.0 with 3 reviews


Peck’s highly imaginative stories run the gamut from Mormons reverting to a medieval society on Mars to a bishop who is killing the neighborhood dogs. These stories not only entertain and delight, but they challenge and provoke as well. This collection includes several award-winning stories, including:

  • “Two-Dog Dose”—best short story of 2014, Association for Mormon Letters
  • “A Strange Report from the Church Archives”—second place, Irreantum fiction contest
  • “Avek, Who Is Distributed”—first place, Four Centuries of Mormon Fiction Contest 2012
  • “When the Bishop Started Killing Dogs”—second place, Four Centuries of Mormon Fiction Contest 2012

“Every story Steven L. Peck writes seems to lead Mormon fiction in exciting and innovative new directions. I hate hyperbole, but Peck might be the Moses of Mormon letters in the twenty-first century.”
