INSPIRED BY ALASKA
About time Alaska had its own literary anthology! Founded in 2014 by two of Alaska’s most respected and well-published authors, the Sampler offers unique voices, both the undiscovered and the luminaries of Great Land writing.
David Marusek and Deb Vanasse founded the Sampler and are devoted to offering the best of Alaska for free.
Alaska Sampler is a not-for-profit, literary labor of love. We depend on donations from our readers to recover production costs. Your donation helps us continue discovering and championing fierce Alaska voices and bringing them to readers free.
Edited by Alaska authors Deb Vanasse and David Marusek
“One of the best trips I ever took was to Alaska. This book is a chance to visit again, with a variety of fascinating viewpoints, and without even packing a suitcase! Led to it by one favorite author, walking away with several new favorites.”
“A wonderful compendium of all things Alaska. Please publish one every year or two. Surely there are enough wonderful Alaskan authors.”
“I’ve never been to Alaska, and probably never will go, as it’s on the other side of the world from me, but this collection certainly ignited my own interest in the region. I’m pleased to note that Deb Vanasse et al are planning to make this an annual publication, and I shall definitely look out for future editions. I’ve also already downloaded longer works by a couple of the authors that I liked best.”
“I was pleasantly surprised by the writing in the Alaska Sampler. . . I’ll be looking up several of the authors in the Sampler to read more of their work.”
