Blurbs, Press & Reviews

A Field Guide to Murder & Fly Fishing

“Tim Weed’s A Field Guide to Murder and Fly Fishing is a fiction collection of the first order. I found myself parceling out the stories to make them last. These are stories that will live a long time both on the page and in your heart.”
—Joseph Monninger, prize-winning author of The World as We Know It.

“Each story is a jewel, cracking open what matters most: love, family, and our big beautiful planet.”
—Ann Hood, author of The Book That Matters Most

Will Poole’s Island

“Immersive . . . This riveting portrayal of early Colonial New England shines a speculative but compelling light on the time and place.”
Kirkus Reviews

“Tim Weed’s Will Poole’s Island is a doorway to an earlier world when the United States existed as a borderless tract of land whose dimensions could hardly be imagined. This is a superb novel, written with truth and daring at its core.”
—Joseph Monninger, National Endowment for the Arts Fellow and author of The World as We Know It

“It’s been so long since I felt like a little girl in love with books again. Treasure Island, Island of the Blue Dolphins, The Yearling, lazing around on a spot of sunshine totally engrossed in this other, historical world, that’s how I feel about Will Poole’s Island.”
—Suzanne Kingsbury, author of The Summer Fletcher Greel Loved Me
