Title

Sunseekers

Abstract

What if the sun disappeared but the world didn't end? A boy with wings fell out of the sky? A piano prodigy vanished but the disappearance didn't stick? Sunseekers is a collection of short stories that explores the intersections of memory, identity, and narrative. How do the stories we hear, tell, and internalize shape the people we are becoming and the worlds we are making? Stories stay with us. They shape us, and they change us. The longer they sit within us, the more they begin to interpret our pasts, define our presents, and set trajectories for our futures. And as the boundaries of memory are blurred, so are the patterns of time. In Sunseekers, the traditions of magical realism, fairy tale, and literary realism intersect as characters and their narratives are exposed to the wild and startling fabric of the world as it is.
