Advance Reading Copies On the Way!

After uploading the ARC yesterday, we’re one step closer to the March 2014 release of Astoria to Zion: Twenty-Six Stories of Risk and Abandon from Ecotone’s First Decade with a foreword by Ben Fountain.

If you’re a reviewer or blogger and would like to request a copy of the ARC, please e-mail

Here’s the fantastic design in greater detail.


Thanks to Amy Pastre and the talented team at Stitch in Charleston, SC for helping us realize our vision for the cover. We’ve long been fans of theirs and were thrilled for the opportunity to work with them on a Lookout title.

Let us know what you think! We promise that the stories inside are every bit as exciting as the cover.

Please stay tuned over the next couple of months for more Astoria to Zion posts, featuring interviews with the contributors, editors, and staff; excerpts from the stories; and contests to win free copies and other Lookout loot.
