Nick Francis Potter

The Los Angeles Review of Books published a review of Nick Francis Potter's hybrid short story and comics collection New Animals, which won the Subito Press Innovative Fiction Prize in 2014 and was published April 2016. The review, "The Short Story in the Age of Tumblr: On Nick Francis Potter's 'New Animals'" by Daniel Worden focuses on the works hybridity, stating, "It is fitting that this book involves and collects Potter's work in both the short story and comics forms, as that hybridity makes formally evident what the book's stories dramatize." Worden also offers praise for Potter's creation throughout, "New Animals, then, is something that feels new, an MFA short story collection that is also an example of what artists actually are today, in the age of Tumblr." Nick is a fourth year doctoral candidate in fiction at MU. Read the full review here.
