2020 Spokesman-Review Summer Stories Part 1

Now in its seventh year, the Spokesman-Review Summer Stories is a special section in the Sunday Spokesman-Review newspaper featuring original short fiction by local authors on a common theme. This year’s theme is Mount Saint Helens, which erupted 40 years ago this year on May 18, 1980.

On Tonight's episode of The Bookshelf, we present two Summer Stories, "The Thick Darkness" by Shawn Vestal and "Rumblings” by Beth Piatote.
