1 Reid, Van; other ContributorsThe American Zig-Zag: Volume One
Augusta, ME Moosepath Press 2010 1450737153 / 9781450737159 First Edition Soft Cover As New Signed by Author
First printing, October 2010. Green and black wraps in zig-zag design. 192 pages. Black & white illustrations by various artists: Jeff Suntala, Bruce Rosenberger, Glen Chadbourne, Thaddeus Lyford, David Hunter, Barbara Neeson, Michael Neno, Randy Sargent. ~ In fine, clean, unused condition, and inscribed by Van Reid on the title page: "Best Zig-Zagian Wishes! From Maine and the Moosepath! --Van Reid." ~~ Van Reid is the author of the successful and charmingly nostalgic series of novels about the Moosepath League, set in 19th-century Maine. From the back cover: "Van Reid's picaresque novels . . . have garnered loyal fans and warm reviews (including a New York Times Notable Book of the Year) with their unique mixture of adventure, romance, and laugh-out-loud humor. Now he returns with this inaugural 'Zig-Zag' across the Americas--with six of his own short stories that veer geographically from the Portland waterfront to the Chicago stockyards, from the wilds of Manitoba to a lonely chain of islands off the coast of Brazil and ranging in tone from the suspenseful to the comic. In the grand tradition of 19th century journals, he has recruited talented poets, humorists, and musicians to bring even more weight and variety to the proceedings--and also ten fine artists to illustrate the resulting stories, poems, cartoons, and essays--all with the express purpose of hearkening to an earlier era of American journals that delight and entertain." Complete with a supernatural story, a Western, a story about pirates, as well as anecdotes and vignettes. Also contains an Ongoing Tale titled "Fustianne Mae (Part One)" which is to be continued in Volume Two. Two-column text formatting and nostalgic-style illustrations recreate the design of period literary periodicals. Includes biographical blurbs about each contributor. Fun and entertaining.

2 Reid, Van; other ContributorsThe American Zig-Zag: Volume Two
Augusta, ME Moosepath Press 2012 1467556009 / 9781467556002 First Edition Soft Cover As New Signed by Author
First printing, December 2012. Orange and brown wraps in zig-zag design. 192 pages. Black & white illustrations by various artists: Jeff Suntala, Glenn Chadbourne, Mary Herndon Boothby, Thaddeus Lyford, Bruce Rosenberger, Rhea Butler, Randy Sargent, Joe Zierman, Stephen Prescott, Michael Neno. ~ In fine, clean, unused condition, and inscribed by Van Reid on the title page: "See you on the Moosepath! --Van Reid." A one-page errata slip, also signed by Reid, is laid in, describing and correcting a formatting error on page 46. ~~ Van Reid is the author of the successful and charmingly nostalgic series of novels about the Moosepath League, set in 19th-century Maine. From the back cover: "The American Zig-Zag is back with a second volume of tales . . . that range from the meditative to the humorous to the suspenseful--sometimes all in the same setting. From the waterfront of Portland, Maine (where fans of the Moosepath novels will recognize several supporting characters) to the polyglot slums of turn-of-the-century Chicago; from the coast of Oregon to a small town in Indiana--Reid's characters stumble into mystery, surprise, and adventure. Seasoning this throw-back to late 19th century magazines is an engaging collection of poets, essayists, and humorists. And ten wonderful artists . . . illuminate the entire proceedings with a wide variety of styles and tone." The issue also contains Part Two of the Ongoing Tale titled "Fustianne Mae" which was begun in Volume One. Two-column text formatting and nostalgic-style illustrations recreate the design of period literary periodicals. Includes biographical blurbs about each contributor.
