This Week With Lookout Authors

Steve Almond, (the guy with all the sex stories) had an awesome The Week in Greed post on The Rumpus a couple of days ago.

And it’s just been announced that he is the recipient of the 2012 Paterson Fiction Prize! Go Steve!

Check out some more praise over at City Book Review for John Rybicki’s When All The World Is Old.

There’s also a Bincoular Vision by Edith Pearlman giveaway courtesy of Erika Dreifus!

And we’ve recently unveiled the cover of Ben Miller’s River Bend Chronicle, with artwork by Matthew Kaven Brooks.

Great things going on!
