Gillis as only Gillis can: the politics of love, human action as theater, and the dreams we dream and chase forever. The Consequence of Skating, Steven Gillis' fourth novel, blends politics, drama, ice skating, mountain climbing, the music industry, and world affairs-not to mention artificial intelligence and G.O.D.-to create an inimitable tour de force. Centering on Mickey Greene, an actor who has fallen from grace, the novel follows Mick as he maneuvers through a series of adventures that set him on a course of reconstructing his life in a way he never before imagined. Steven Gillis is the author of the novels Walter Falls, The Weight of Nothing-both finalists for the Independent Publishers Book of the Year and ForeWord magazine Book of the Year 2003 and 2005-and Temporary People. Steve's stories, articles, and book reviews have appeared in over three dozen journals. A six-time Pushcart nominee and four time Best Of...?otable Stories winner, a collection of Steve's stories-titled Giraffes-was published in February 2007. A second collection of Steve's stories, titled The Principles of Landscape, will be published by Black Lawrence Press in 2011. A member of the Ann Arbor Book Festival board of directors and a finalist for the 2007 Ann Arbor News Citizen of the Year, Steve taught writing at Eastern Michigan University.
