Be There Now
Announcing a new book – Be There Now, featuring a travel story first published here on Gear Up & Play! This anthology includes the tale of an amateurish kidnapping in Nicaragua, existential stories from a man lost on the flooded Amazon River at night, a woman’s amazing encounter with a grizzly, and our own Jennifer Choban’s comedic episode in a Chinese bathroom.
Be There Now is part of a series of anthologies of creative nonfiction on various topics from Dream of Things, which strives to publish anthologies that fill the gap between popular collections that can be regarded as “short and sweet,” and the Best American Essays series, which tend to be longer-form. The goal for Dream of Things anthologies is to be not short and sweet, but short and deep.
