Orange County: A Literary Field Guide

This 2017 collection from Heyday Books, edited by Lisa Alvarez and Andrew Tonkovich, includes an excerpt from Smith’s short story “Dark Matter,” along with works by Michael Chabon, Oakley Hall, Philip K. Dick, Edward Humes, Kim Stanley Robinson, and many more.

“This book excels by paying attention to all the quirks that define this place — including Disneyland, toll roads, endangered gnatcatchers, bikinied goddesses, killer cops, acid-loving hippies, and everything in between and beyond.” — Gustavo Arellano, from the foreword
