K. Larsen. The center point in Q+1 is simply enough the short story: an elastic vessel for fiction, able to accommodate narrative arcs, whether revealed in a chaptered micro-bildungsroman, as in Robert Ashleys The Hardware Days Almost Gone- manifested as computer instructions in Sumner Carnahans Authentic Incarnation- told through the unreliable dual point-of-view narrator in Thomas Fricks Troubadour Awakening- or, with a flash of epiphany, as in L. K. Larsens Leave a Message. By pushing the short story in these ways, the works demonstrate the realization of Fricks narrator when he quotes literary theorist George Steiner: Difficulty is the armature of meaning.

Certainly, many of the fourteen pieces in Q+1--and the novels they accompany--push story to its limits. And still the center holds.--Julia Goldberg
