Upcoming Guernica Author, Rolli, Finalist for High Plains Book Award

i am currently working on a novelWe’re excited to announce that one of our upcoming authors, Rolli, has been shortlisted for the 2015 High Plains Book Award in the Short Story category for his collection I Am Currently Working on a Novel.

The High Plains Book Awards recognizes regional authors and/or literary works which examine and reflect life on the High Plains including the states of Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Wyoming, Nebraska, Colorado, and Kansas, and the Canadian provinces of Alberta, Manitoba, and Saskatchewan.

Rolli is one of three finalists in the short story category, along with Dave Margoshes and Jamie Lisa Forbes.


The more than 70 stories in I Am Currently Working on a Novel are as diverse as a telephone conversation or your average ocean. There are stories set in Hollywood, London, and the bottom of the sea. There are stories about ghosts, robots, love, Pointillism, death, and immortality. Though seldom longer than a few pages, there is more mystery and sadness and sheer mania in these slimmed-down fictions than a whole shelf-full of standard novels
