Matt Bell is the author of the fiction collection How They Were Found, published in October 2010 by Keyhole Press. When Phyllis first heard of the call for stories for the Mystery Writers of America anthology, she pulled Designer Justice out of the trunk and swore this would be her last attempt to get a story published before absolutely quitting. She’d sold only one story, some twenty years earlier, to Buffalo Spree.

Ronald Howard Paulson (born May 27, 1930 in Bottineau, North Dakota) is an American professor of English, a specialist in English 18th-century art and culture, and English artist William Hogarth. He earned his doctorate degree from Yale in 1958.

As a companion to AQR’s volume Intimate Voices, Ordinary Lives (1997), One Blood: The Narrative Impulse explores an alternative view.

When the King of Sweden awarded Karl Landsteiner the Nobel Prize for Medicine in 1930, a number of things were known about human blood. It appears to be red and is pumped by the engine of the heart. As a companion to AQR’s volume Intimate Voices, Ordinary Lives (1997), One Blood: The Narrative Impulse explores an alternative view. We believe the basic impulse at the core of human narrative renders genre distinction an artifice. Fidelity to this fundamental impulse recognizes the primacy of narrative itself rather than its factuality or fictionality.

The creative urge, the urge to destroy The black flag of the chaos star Flown to quake our lusts. The energy locked in the primal source, leaks into the mind Features combines to divide Tangled elements and the fortune Powering the cruel universe Death drives the vicious circle. Perfection was just the beginning The code bound to collapse or something that never did exist The human path brought the shame A tragic figure, the defunct species, eonian discord! The defect that gives birth to divinity Worship derived from silence The powers that be arise

One Blood: The Narrative Impulse, AQR‘s glossy-covered companion to Intimate Voices, Ordinary Lives (1997), showcases a captivating assortment of first person narratives.

ONE BLOOD: The Narrative Impulse is a special anthology published by Alaska Quarterly Review, University of Alaska Anchorage, 360 pages, softcover 6 x 9, ISBN 0-9673377-2-0, $6.95.

The book features 31 stories of fact and fiction by new and emerging writers, each story written in the first person voice. They were culled from about 3,100 first person submissions to Alaska Quarterly Review over a two-year period. The book's presentation of the stories recognizes the primacy of narrative. By choosing not to classify them by genre, each story's purpose is unchanged and yet the reader is brought closer to the story's heart--it's narrative impulse. The premise and methodology of the book are explained in the Editor's Note by Ronald Spatz, and Patricia Hampl's introduction, "First Person Singular," places the first person voice in our literary history and in a more general sense of history. ONE BLOOD: The Narrative Impulse was funded in part, by a Creation and Presentation Grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.

As background, Alaska Quarterly Review (AQR), is now in its 19th year of continuous publication. It is an award winning literary journal produced by the University of Alaska Anchorage and has been appreciatively reviewed by a variety of sources including the Book World section of The Washington Post ("That one of the nation's best literary magazines comes out of Alaska may seem surprising, but so it is.") and by Library Journal ("highly recommended and deserves applause"). AQR focuses on fiction, nonfiction, drama, and poetry by new and emerging writers. Many of the stories, poems and essays first published in AQR (some of them the first-time publications of their authors) have been selected for The Prize Stories: The O. Henry Awards, The Best American Essays, The Andres Berger Award, The Pushcart Prize: The Best of the Small Presses, The Best American Poetry, and the Beacon Best anthology. Work has also been reprinted in Harper's, Small Press and numerous other collections. AQR hasbeen recognized with an Alaska Governor's Award for the Arts (1996) and 5 National Endowment for the Arts grants. AQR's special anthology, Alaska Native Writers, Storytellers & Orators: The Expanded Edition (1999) was positively reviewed in a range of venues including Kirkus Reviews.
