Legacy: An Anthology
Kristopher Jansma
4.2 Stars (11 Reviews)
Genre: Short Stories | Anthologies & Literature Collections | Anthologies

A rock ‘n roll concert that will forever be etched in the minds of the fans who witnessed it. An adult orphan searching for a “forever home.” A survivor from World War II, on a journey to find one last memory of her mother. What do these stories have in common? They all answer the question: What will you leave behind?

Long after we’ve left this world, our legacy remains. Or doesn’t. Or remains only in the minds of those who knew us, those whose lives we’ve touched. Those we’ve written to, or about. What mark would you leave? How should people remember you? Should they remember you? This chilling, stunning, eerie, and hopeful collection of fiction and nonfiction stories will stick with you long after you’ve finished reading it. Includes stories from New York Times best selling author Regina Calcaterra, Sherwood Anderson Award winner Kristopher Jansma and Canadian best selling author Marissa Stapley, along with 11 others. Author proceeds benefit the charity PAWS for Reading, which pairs pets with children to improve reading and communication skills. Thanks for supporting the cause!

Interview with the Editors Q: We see some big names in Legacy: Regina Calcaterra, whose memoir Etched in Sand was a New York Times best seller; Kristopher Jansma (The Unchangeable Spots of Leopards), winner of the 2014 Sherwood Anderson Award for Fiction; Jenny Milchman (Cover of Snow), winner of the Mary Higgins Clark Award for best suspense novel of 2013 — and that’s just to name a few! How did you manage to assemble such a list of talented authors? A: We were inspired by the #30Authors blog event hosted by The Book Wheel, where authors reviewed their favorite books of 2014 on participating blogs. So we thought, how about featuring the work of these authors in an anthology? We liked the idea of best-selling authors, award-winning authors and a few talented debut authors collaborating on a project. So we invited them to participate, and to our delight, they were just as excited to contribute to such an anthology as we were to publish it. Q: Why the theme of legacy? A: Words remain. And the writer’s art is created through words. So it seemed the perfect subject to explore through fiction and nonfiction stories. What is the meaning of life? How do you find meaning in life? Sometimes the answer is in death, which these stories convey. Q: What sorts of tales will we find in the book? A: Our writers wrote along a common theme, legacy, yet each story is very different. It is interesting to see each author’s take on the idea. You’ll find the classic love story, stories of family secrets, friendship and life-changing experiences, mother-daughter relationships, father-son relationships, an on-the-edge-of-your-seat thriller, a World War II mystery and Holocaust remembrance, stories of mean girls, and a tribute to rock and roll. Q: We hear your anthology is for a good cause? A: Yes! Author proceeds go to the PAWS for Reading program, which allows children to read aloud to a therapy dog (or cat, or bunny!) to improve reading and communication skills. Thanks for supporting the cause! Categories for the Legacy collection – Literary Fiction Short Stories – Short Story Mysteries – Short Story Collection The Legacy collection has something for everyone. From stories of hope to a sad love story, its heavy theme will ultimately leave you feeling hopeful about the future. The Legacy anthology touches on the following themes: death, what is the meaning of life, stories of hope, human experience, quest, love story, World War II mysteries, Holocaust stories, rock and roll, star-crossed lovers, foster children, family secrets, friendship, destiny, a super sad love story, and how to find meaning in life
