Crossing Colfax: Short Stories by Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers
 
 
A good story is a good story wherever it comes from, and this place is full of them." - from "Charlie's Point of View"Playboy Magazine once called Colfax Avenue "the longest, wickedest street in America." A hundred years ago, it was the main road into and out of Denver, Colorado. East Colfax was the address to have for many of the city's elite, and West Colfax was a trail that led to the mountains and dreams of Gold Rush riches. A 105-acre tuberculosis sanatorium for the poor once fronted the street - the Golden Hill Cemetery still houses many of the White Plague's victims.Colfax Avenue has been a part of almost every major era that defines the American West. It has housed the richest and the poorest, supported massive public works and the seediest criminal enterprises. If that isn't the stuff of great fiction, we don't know what else qualifies.We invite you to explore Colfax Avenue - its past, present, and future. Its greatest moments, real or imaginary, and its darkest secrets. Tales of romance, action, fantasy and more - Colfax has seen it all:• Billy Shump has seven seconds to save a life - and ruin his own• Mike Ashford learns that skimming off other people's dreams isn't nearly as satisfying as finding his own• Mech apocalypse refugee Kal must decide how far he's willing to go in order to survive• Detective Marc Davis works a missing child case that puts his solid lack of faith in question• Sugar thought she hit rock bottom, until her unique talent catches unwanted attention• Jackie tries to save a homeless man from alien abduction• And eight other tales inspired by Colfax AvenueCrossing Colfax includes stories from authors Warren Hammond (KOP series) and Linda Berry (Trudy Roundtree Mystery series), and past Colorado Gold writing contest finalists and winners, including Zoltan James, Martha Husain, Angie Hodapp, TJ Valour, and more.
