The Exhibit X Fiction Series showcases experimental and innovative fictions: from new novels to anti-novels, from criti-fictions to cross-genre writing, from hypermedia to the avant-pop…to whatever comes next, whatever that may be—fictions that, as yet, have no name.
Morris Collins’s first novel, Horse Latitudes, was published in 2013 and was reissued by Dzanc Books in 2019. NPR described Horse Latitudes as “gripping and wildly entertaining …A hybrid narrative that's part thriller, part surreal noir, and part tropical gothic, it reads like a collaboration between William Faulkner, Louis-Ferdinand Céline and Hunter S. Thompson, as directed by David Lynch.” Other fiction and poetry has recently appeared in Pleiades, Gulf Coast, The Chattahoochee Review, Michigan Quarterly Review, and Nimrod among others. He is a Visiting Assistant Professor of English and Creative Writing at The College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, MA.
Joanna Scott is the author of twelve books, including the novels Arrogance, Tourmaline, and Careers for Women, and two collections of short fiction, Various Antidotes and Everybody Loves Somebody. Her many awards include a MacArthur Fellowship, a Lannan Literary Award, and a Guggenheim Fellowship. Her novel, The Manikin, was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize, and her stories have been included in Pushcart Prize anthologies and Best American Stories. She is the Roswell Smith Burrows Professor of English and the Director of the Literary Arts Programs at the University at Rochester.
