The next few months will see the publication of three books bearing the name of Alan Cheuse, professor of English at George Mason.

Cheuse co-edited “Writers Workshop in a Book: The Squaw Valley Community of Writers on the Art of Fiction.” The book, appearing in May, features a collection of essays and talks from instructors at Squaw Valley.

He also edited “Seeing Ourselves: Stories from America’s Past,” mainly consisting of 19th-century American short fiction. The anthology, which comes partly from Cheuse’s teaching of the short story at Mason, will also be published in May.

Two of Cheuse’s more recent novellas—“The Fires” and “The Exorcism”—will be published together in The Fires in early September. The two novellas originally appeared in journal form in the Idaho Review.

Cheuse will be on a prepublication tour this summer in California and Hawaii. From there, he’ll head home to take part in readings at Politics and Prose in Washington, D.C., and Mason’s annual Fall for the Book Festival.

A complete list of dates will be posted on Cheuse’s Web site and the Santa Fe Writers Project Web site.
