Dispensation: Latter-day Fiction anthologizes the best Mormon short stories written near the turn of the twenty-first century. Each of the extraordinary twenty-eight stories in this volume represents a potent individual voice, from popular and nationally acclaimed authors Brady Udall and Orson Scott Card, to well-respected Mormon literature veterans Douglas Thayer and Margaret Blair Young, to talented up-and-coming writers Lisa Madsen Rubilar and Todd Robert Petersen, and many more.

Taken individually, each story is an example of the surprise and power and even joy readers can find in a finely wrought piece of short fiction. Considered collectively, these stories herald a new era of excellence in Mormon literature. As Margaret Blair Young writes in her introduction, “In Dispensation, Angela Hallstrom has assembled twenty-eight gems—each a star in a brilliant constellation. This particular collection is a pinnacle.”
