Charlotte's Aaron Gwyn has earned a place in the 2010 edition of "New Stories from the South" (Algonquin; $14.95), with his short story, "Drive." Gwyn, an English professor at UNC Charlotte, joins some formidable company in this collection from well-known and up-and-coming Southern authors.
Also in the collection: Western Carolina University's Ron Rash, with "Ascent," and Wells Tower's "Retreat." The New Yorker recently named Tower, who grew up in Chapel Hill, one of 20 outstanding writers under 40.
