Short Peaks

Author: Short Peaks
Price: $19.95
Format: Softcover

Imaginary Mountain Surveyors is a Canmore book publisher who released Short Peaks, their first title, in 2013. Between the covers are 33 fictional short stories--from angels on summits to ghosts on ledges, from madmen on diamox to malevolent gurus on mountain tops - these intertwined and very short peeks at the mountains tell tales from the past, present, and future.

Based in Canmore, Alberta and founded in late 2012, the Surveyors are a group dedicated to bringing fictional mountain stories to light. The focus is on new ways to tell the stories of the mountains, especially the Canadian Rockies, in fictional ways - a genre that is currently under-represented in the literature of the peaks.

Short Peaks is available at Mooseprint Books & Gifts for $19.95.
