SHORT FLIGHT/LONG DRIVE BOOKS is an independent, non-profit small press specializing in the publication of fiction. A division of Hobart, Short Flight/Long Drive Book was founded in 2006 with Elizabeth Ellen as editor. SF/LD Books has published Chelsea Martin’s Even Though I Don’t Miss You (2013), Chloe Caldwell’s Women (2014) and working on Mira Gonzalez’s forthcoming untitled book w/ Tao Lin.

CHELSEA MARTIN is the author of Even Though I Don’t Miss You (SF/LD, 2013), Everything Was Fine Until Whatever (Future Tense, 2009) and The Really Funny Thing About Apathy (Sunnyoutside, 2010). In 2012 she started the comic Heavy-Handed, which is published bi-weekly on The Rumpus. She has a BFA in writing and illustration from California College of the Arts and lives in Oakland, California.

CHLOE CALDWELL is the author of the essay collection Legs Get Led Astray (Future Tense Books, 2012) and Women (SF/LD, 2014). Her work has appeared in Salon.com, The Rumpus, Hobart, and the anthologies Goodbye To All That: Writers on Loving and Leaving NYC and True Tales of Lust and Love. She lives in upstate New York.

MIRA GONZALES is an American poet from Los Angeles, California. Her first collection, I will never be beautiful enough to make us beautiful together, was published by Spencer Madsen of Sorry House press on January 31, 2013. According to one source, she writes about “drugs, sex, loneliness, laziness, recklessness, self-loathing” in an “extremely humorous and warm manner.” A review in Rumpus magazine described the book as about “disconnected sex, anxiety, loneliness, drugs, and depression” but with “cool, effervescent, and clear” observations. In March, 2015, SF/LD will publish a yet untitled book Mira collaborated on with Tao Lin. Flavorwire named Mira one of “23 People Who Will Make You Care About Poetry in 2013.”

ELIZABETH ELLEN is the author of Before You She Was a Pit Bull (Future Tense), Sixteen Miles Outside of Phoenix (Rose Metal Press) and Fast Machine (Short Flight/Long Drive Books). She has been published on HTMLGIANT, Muumuu House, elimae, Hobart, Lamination Colony, and numerous other literary Internet sites and journals. She was recently awarded a Pushcart Prize for her story “Teen Culture” which appeared in American Short Fiction in 2012.
