Others have inspired his award-winning novels: A Long Way from Chicagoand A Year Down Yonderbegan with a story called “Shotgun Cheatham’s Last Night Above Ground”; and “The Electric Summer” was the jumping point for Fair Weather.Now here are thirteen of Richard Peck’s stories, including all of his previously published tales and two brand-new ones. He has also written entertaining notes about the stories, an informative introduction about the genre, and tips on how to write short stories, including “Five Helpful Hints” that will be a valuable aid to aspiring authors.
