HIGHLANDS, NJ -Laury A. Egan’s collection, Fog and Other Stories, has recently been published in paperback and eBook formats by StoneGarden.net. Several stories feature Sandy Hook, Atlantic Highlands, and Highlands, but also locations like Venice, Mykonos, Santorini, and Ireland. The collection deals with the metaphorical concept of fog as a state produced by grief, mental illness, love, anger, dementia, pain, prejudice or dreams and how the human being refracts reality through these diffused prisms.

“I found myself stopping after each story and grazing on the beauty of words and the strong characters. Each story kept gathering strength. Egan loves her characters, their humanity shining through, creating each with an honesty and emotion that infuses the plots with a truth held dear.” --R. D. Hartwell

Laury A. Egan's work has received nominations for a Pushcart Prize, Best of the Web, Best of the Net, and has appeared in over 35 literary journals. A psychological suspense novel, Jenny Kidd, is forthcoming from Vagabondage Press. For more information: www.lauryaegan.com.
