The Alaska Literary Series

"Amore’s slim volume of short stories feels perfectly conceived with a tense melancholy throughout. Each tale features finely observed details about the Alaskan setting — from lakes to mountain ranges to the wildlife throughout."
—Anchorage Press


In the Quiet Season and Other Stories explores the human landscape of Alaska. While the stories take place in modern day towns, each is laced with a timelessness that comes from their roots in ageless issues: broken trust and heartbreak, hope and rebirth. The expansive Alaska landscape infuses the stories with a unique chill, as tears freeze on eyelashes and mountain ranges form the backdrop for breakups. Although the people in Amore’s stories know how to survive Alaska’s cold terrain, these characters stumble when trying to navigate through their own lives and lost dreams.

Martha Amore is a fiction writer who teaches writing at Alaska Pacific University and the University of Alaska Anchorage.
