Criticism

William Giraldi, “Next Stop, Abbotland: The Stories of Lee K. Abbott.”  Published in the Spring 2007 issue (61.1) of The Georgia Review.  Accessible through JSTOR.

“As Fate Would Have It” is mentioned in “Narrative as Rhetoric,” by James Phelan and Peter J. Rabinowitz.

The writer of Great Writers Steal examines the story “Gravity” to isolate elements of craft that may be useful to other writers.

Larry Hendricks reviewed Living After Midnight for the Northern Arizona Book Festival.
