Claremont, CA – February 16, 2020 – Pelekinesis is pleased to announce the upcoming release of Hold Still Fast, new short stories from Sean Pravica, available May 15, 2020 worldwide.

Hold Still Fast is a collection of 200 short vignettes of 50 words and under, prose snapshots of a wide range of colorful characters. Moments of reckoning and realizations of loss, sensual celebrations of the physical world and mysteries whose answers lie barely out of reach, these stories are complete in their telling yet rich in implication. They are the stories we tell when we see more than we say, when we feel more than we know. Immediate. Intimate. Fast stories with time held still.

Hold Still Fast by Sean Pravica will be available through Small Press Distribution, Baker & Taylor, Bertrams, directly from the publisher's website, and in fine local bookstores worldwide.
