About the Event

Contributors to What Would Elvis Think? will join editor Johnny Lowe in an author event celebrating two dozen works of short fiction in this vivid anthology set across Mississippi … Elvis country! 

 

"Any discussion of southern writing will eventually lead to Mississippi—the state that has more published authors per capita than any other. . . . Why not, then, create an anthology of stories specifically about Mississippi? Such is the book you now hold in your hand—a collection of tales that are all set here in Elvis Country. . . . Some of these Mississippians might remind you of folks you know—and others are people you might never want to meet face to face. What they have in common is that they're all interesting—and unforgettable."

         – John Floyd, author of The Barrens

The authors include: 

Jim R. Angelo, Marion Barnwell, Lottie Brent Boggan, Janet Brown, John M. Floyd, Chuck Galey, Sally P. Green, Sherye Simmons Green, Wendy Harms, Brent Hearn, Charlotte Hudson, Daney Kepple, JP Luby, Chuck McIntosh, Frederick Charles Melancon, Melanie Noto, Linda Raiteri, Nicolas Smith, Kyle Summerall, Stephanie Swindle Thomas, Janet Taylor-Perry, Diane Thomas-Plunk, and Judy H. Tucker

Editor Johnny Lowe is originally from Vicksburg, Mississippi. He has worked in advertising in both Mississippi and Southern California. He was editor of a trade magazine and copyedited books for a university press. He's lettered comic books and self-published a few. He has even dabbled as a ventriloquist.
