Description

Chad Pelley’s Four-Letter Words, his collection of award-winning short stories, presents us with characters haunted by one four-letter word or another: love, hate, lust, or loss. A father drives across the island hoping to find his missing son, a hitman considers the life of his female victim while watching her through his scope, a lonely man frequents hospital emergency rooms to diagnose the pain of others, and another clings to a buoy at sea. Whether documenting the ways in which we become obsessed with our current situation or our fascination with the lives we could have lived, these stories, told in Pelley’s decidedly contemporary style, form unique portraits of how we are led astray and how we often find ourselves at a crossroads, uncertain and entirely lost.

About the Author
Chad Pelley is an award-winning author, songwriter, and photographer from St. John’s, Newfoundland. His debut novel, Away from Everywhere, was a Coles bestseller, won NLAC’s CBC Emerging Artist of the Year Award, and was shortlisted for both the ReLit Award and the Canadian Authors Association Emerging Artist of the Year Award. It has been adopted by university courses, and is currently being adapted for film. His short fiction has been published in journals, textbooks, anthologies, and has been recognized by close to ten awards. Chad is the founder of Salty Ink, President of the Writers Alliance of Newfoundland & Labrador, and writes for a variety of publications, including Quill & Quire, The National Post, and Atlantic Books Today. As a result, he rarely sees more of the world than his computer screen, and his hottest one-night stands happen in his own bed, with books of Canadian fiction.
