GRAVITY CHANGES 'will haunt you in the best way'

Zach Powers's BOA Short Fiction Prize-winning collection Gravity Changes has been in the media spotlight recently, with new reviews and features from Whurk Magazine, Connect Savannah, Do Savannah, and BookRiot.

In an interview with Zach Powers for Whurk Magazine, reviewer Kaylah Rodriguez says, "From the turn of the first page, there is a shift—an exquisite moment of crossing over—into a place where time and space are unrecognizable, but, for better or worse, the human condition remains. Aptly named, Gravity Changes is a stunning, whimsical collection of words that will haunt you in the best way."

Anna Chandler of Connect Savannah says, "Published by BOA Editions, the collection of stories won the BOA Short Fiction Prize and is already earning widespread praise. Seventeen stories comprise Powers’s first release, each delving into beautifully dark and soaringly fantastic corners of the imagination. From flying children to lightbulb matrimony, Powers pushes his reader into a new universe, but his masterful tone makes these strange little worlds feel all too familiar."

Joshua Peacock of Do Savannah says, "His fascination with science and science fiction is evident throughout the collection, as he carefully bends the rules of physics or laws of the universe to explore minute details of the human disposition. The stories feel like parables at times, leaving empty layers of questions lingering, but providing enough details to be utterly fascinating."

Reviewer Susie Rodarme included Gravity Changes on BookRiot's list of "12 Excellent Small Press Books to Check Out in May," summing the whole collection up with one amazing line: "YEP OKAY SIGN ME UP."
