Slayton Gibbs is my alter ego and pseudonym.
I recently completed a novel, An Absence of Memory, and I’m seeking a literary agent. I’ve started work on my second novel, The Next Effort, a futuristic consideration of environmental and social collapse. My scholarly and professional writing, published under my other name– Stephanie Sarver– has appeared in Literature/Film Quarterly, Rocky Mountain Review, Western American Literature, Minneapolis Star-Tribune, Travelers Tales, and ISLE.
I published a book of literary scholarship many years ago, which is seldom read. Ironically, I’m increasingly quoted among scholars of literary ecocriticism because decades ago I denounced the term at a conference, and the denunciation provides a convenient sound bite for emerging, though perpetually obscure, scholars of literature.
These days I write and ponder the condition of our world. I garden. I read. I cook. I fret.
