Pre-orders are currently underway for the signed hardcover first edition of Weeding for Eisenhower, the new collection of short stories by T.D. Johnston. Better know to locals as “Tim,” Johnston and his family lived in Beaufort for years before recently relocating to Jacksonville, FL, and they still maintain a home here.

Editor of the Short Story America anthology series of contemporary fiction, Johnston won the 2017 International Book Award for Best Short Fiction for his debut collection, Friday Afternoon and Other Stories. Of his new collection, author Ray Morrison writes, “Light versus Darkness. Good versus Evil. Truth versus Lies. Sanity versus Madness. The thin line that separates these dichotomies threads its way through these beautifully written stories of modern America, showing us time after time Johnston’s keen ability to illuminate the human condition. And if you are like me, you will come away from reading these often surprising tales with a renewed optimism that there is more than connects us than separates us.”
