Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Ryan W. Bradley’s stories grab you by the balls and don’t let go.” Bonnie Jo Campbell, National Book Award–nominated author
“Just like the state of Alaska itself, in which they’re set, the stories in Ryan Bradley’s Nothing But the Dead and Dying are beautiful, dangerous, hardcore, and strong enough to break your ice-brittled bones. Here are the losers and the strivers, the broken and the just-fixed, the down-but-not-out and the ones crawling back for forgiveness on hands and knees. These are the people of Alaska, yes, but they are also all the citizens of the world. They are you and me in our best and worst hours. Ryan W. Bradley goes full throttle down an icy road with these stories. GodDAMN, can he ever drive a story!” David Abrams, author of Fobbit
