Interview with Cris Mazza

Cris Mazza discusses the craft of building a collection with The Short Review!

TSR: DID YOU HAVE A COLLECTION IN MIND WHEN YOU WERE WRITING THEM?

CM: Trickle-Down Timeline (Red Hen Press 2009!) was only the 2nd collection I've done where I did know I was writing a collection… I believe writers of short fiction have begun to, more and more, compose their collections with complete cognizance that they are doing so, unlike my first 2 collections when I basically looked back at the last 10 to 12 stories I'd written and called them a book. Luckily, something about where I was mentally/ emotionally at the time made those collections have a subtle cohesion I couldn't have planned.
