Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"In the age of tweets and sound bites, it's heartening to read Other Places, a publication celebrating the power and beauty of a story well told." --Sheldon Russell, author of the Hook Runyon Mystery series

"Other Places, a mouth-watering feast of short stories, poems, narrative non-fiction, and in-depth interviews, is the latest anthology from the much-admired Lowestoft Chronicle, an eclectic and innovative online journal. Packed into the pages are stories to entice, enthrall, and entertain. Litchfield also serves up a tasty blend of pleasing and deftly prepared poems. And if you still aren't sated by this literary banquet, tuck into Litchfield's incisive and enlightening interviews with three critically acclaimed, multitalented writers." --Lancashire Evening Post

"I really loved the latest anthology from Lowestoft, Other Places. It's a brilliant, savory, sharp, amusing and varied taste of my favorite magazine, Lowestoft Chronicle. I'm delighted that a place exists for this kind of travel writing -- if that's a term for it. And it's not a good one. This is just great writing about place, ranging from the spirit of place to the human spirit. Go anywhere with Lowestoft. And enjoy the trip." --Jay Parini, internationally bestselling author of The Passages of H.M.

"Other Places is the usual delightful mix of stories, poems, author interviews, and non-fiction gleaned from the pages of the Lowestoft Chronicle, the only literary magazine I read on a regular basis. Always entertaining and insightful, Other Places is well worth your time, whether you're a veteran traveler or a hermit like me!" --James Reasoner, Rough Edges

"Armchair travelers, rejoice! Editor Nicholas Litchfield has released Lowestoft Chronicle's anthology for summer 2015, Other Places. Filled with fiction, nonfiction and poetry about travel and destinations, the book brings the far corners of the world to the reader's armchair. The stories and poems vary in tone from dead serious to delightful whimsy, offering something for every taste. Humor, adventure and mystery share the pages with intriguing result." --Examiner.com

"Sick of fly-by journalism and travel dilettantes? The antidote is Lowestoft Chronicle's most recent anthology, Other Places-a collection of essays, stories, and poetry devoted to the in-depth experience of culture. Whether humorous, touching, or revelatory, these expertly curated pieces throw you in contact with the real." --Scott Dominic Carpenter, author of Theory of Remainders
