Click on the picture for a larger view of the back and front covers, 604kbThe American Zig-Zag: Volume Two!
by Van Reid & Co.

The American Zig-Zag is back with a second volume of Van Reid’s tales of late 19th century America that range from the meditative to the humorous to the suspenseful – sometimes all in the same setting. From the waterfront of Portland, Maine (where fans of the Moosepath novels will recognize several supporting characters) to the polyglot slums of turn-of-the-century Chicago; from the coast of Oregon to a small town in Indiana – Reid’s characters stumble into mystery, surprise, and adventure.

Seasoning this throw-back to late 19th century magazines is an engaging collection of poets, essayists, and humorists. And ten wonderful artists (some returning for a second outing with the Zig-Zag) illuminate the entire proceedings with a wide variety of styles and tone.  So take a step back in time in the way of both subject and style for another compelling Zig-Zag across the continent!

On the back cover reads the following:

  • A young girl glories in a New England fall and ponders the identity of an enigmatic wanderer camping on the outskirts of her family’s acreage.
  • A hold full of cats cannot conceal the peculiar character and strange intuition of one particular shipboard feline.
  • A newly acquired meteorite provides a professor of geology with a calling card to a highly unscientific meeting with three secretive women.
  • And reader-favorite Officer Thomas Borum O’Toole gingerly investigates the shadowy halls of the long abandoned “haunted” house on his Chicagoan patrol.
