We seek contemporary fiction that inhabits the veins of such epic works as Homer's Iliad and Sophocles' Oedipus Cycle; of works as popular as Dickens' David Copperfield or Dante's Divine Comedy, as Cather's O Pioneers! or P.D. James' The Children of Men; of works as demanding as Faulkner's Absalom, Absalom! or Melville's Moby-Dick; of works as historically-conscious as Solzhenitsyn's The Gulag Archipelago or Manzoni's The Betrothed; of works as mammoth and polyphonic as Ralph Ellison's Three Days Before the Shooting and Dostoevsky's Demons; of works as complexly comic as Denis Johnson's Jesus' Son, David Foster Wallace's Infinite Jest, or Flannery O' Connor's Wise Blood.

Editorial Focus

Wiseblood Books fosters works of fiction, poetry, and philosophy that render truths with what Flannery O'Connor called an unyielding "realism of distances." Such works find redemption in uncanny places and people; wrestle us from the tyranny of boredom; mock the pretensions of respectability; engage the hidden mysteries of the human heart, be they sources of either violence or courage; articulate faith and doubt in their incarnate complexity; dare an unflinching gaze at human beings as "political animals"; and suffer through this world's trials without forfeiting hope.
