ron P. swegman is an angler, artist, and author. His first book, Philadelphia on the Fly, introduced a new generation of American outdoor writing with a new set of interests and values: urban angling in the shadow of city skylines; mountain biking to regional fishing destinations; birding as a guide to the fish; and poetic prose writing to describe more than the practical "how-to" strategies for luring fish to the artificial fly. His second, Small Fry: The Lure of the Little, portrays these same themes on a broader geographical canvas. He is a frequent contributor to Fallon's Angler (UK), The Flyfish Journal, Living Ready, On the Water, and Tenkara magazine. His website is http://www.ronpswegman.com. He lives in New York City.

ron swegman is reading The Means of Escape: A solid collection of short stories. Fitzgerald, though known more as a novelist, offers a better introduction to her writing here than in her longer work. Her ghost story, "The Axe", is particularly effective at setting mood and creating character.
