In a Distant Country

Today begins the serialization of Kyle Minor's "In a Distant Country" on the Ninth Letter website. We've never presented a story in this manner before, so we're thrilled to have Kyle's amazing story be the first.

Here is a little bit about the story from its introduction: "The story takes the form of a series of six letters written by the members of a missionary community in Haiti during a time of increasing political turmoil in that country, and they are linked by the off-stage presence of Shelia Brocken, a young woman who increasingly complicates the lives of the various letter writers."

Six letters means we'll post one per week for the next six weeks. Here is the first letter.
