Fun Facts About Out of Time, Part One



Out of Time is a collection of short stories.

It won the Katherine Anne Porter Prize for 2011.

The oldest story in it, according to prior publication, is "Wherever You Are, You're Already Gone," which first appeared in The Alaska Quarterly Review in 1993.

When the manuscript was twice as long, it was a finalist or semi-finalist in five other contests.

The newest story in it was written in 2007 or so. It was accepted for publication by a major magazine but never published. But it all turned out okay in the end.

There are two other Chase stories that go with the linked stories in the collection, but they've never been published.

The structure of the collection is based on Hemingway's In Our Time.
