Pre-Order With Animal

My new book With Animal is now available for pre-order! Co-written with Kelly Magee, this short story collection will be released by Black Lawrence Press in May 2015, featuring cover art by Todd Horton and book design by Amy FreelsYou can pre-order the book directly from the publisher right here right now. I'm happy to send a comp copy if you plan to review or teach the book. Kelly and I are available for interviews and classroom visits via email, phone, or Skype. We hope our feral creature pleases you. 

Todd Horton "Together"
Hybrid twins: one human, one horse. A man pregnant with a kangaroo, a woman raising a baby dragon. A twenty-first century Virgin Mary reimagined as a queer single mother giving birth in a petting zoo. In this collaborative short story collection, Carol Guess and Kelly Magee magically and playfully subvert assumptions about gender, sexuality, parenting, and family. These lyrical fictions bare teeth and spare no claw. They’ll leave you questioning the lines between human and animal, parent and child, love and dominion.
