In this debut fantasy collection “science, physics, and electricity . . . are the background for short stories of startling human disconnection and alienation” (ForeWord Reviews).   This “engaging collection . . . takes on the love and loneliness lurking in the bright lights and shadowed corners of the everyday” (Kirkus Reviews). In these pages, a taboo romance breaks the laws of gravity; Albert Einstein writes letters to the daughter he abandoned; and a female physicist meets Stephen Hawking in a bar. In the closing novella, All Those Stairs, an elevator operator with a genius IQ rides up and down all day enclosed in a metal box.   Author Erin Stalcup explores these lives with compassion, depth, and insight as she examines loss and longing and how our bodies and minds can be both weighted and freed. And Yet It Moves is a powerful combination of both absurdist and realist fiction. “Simply put: these stories defy gravity” (Zachary Tyler Vickers, author of Congratulations on Your Martyrdom!).  A 2016 ForeWord Indies Finalist.
Available since: 07/04/2016.

    The bonds people forge can be glorious, everlasting and filled with devotion. All too often they are problematic and dogged by regrets. Many more are not what they seem. Devotion to a lost partner is one thing, devotion to the long dead quite another, and an orang-utan with a sweet tooth can be more appreciative than the family everything has been sacrificed for.
