"In 1989, Oakley Hall published The Art and Craft of Novel Writing, a classic text that Pulitzer Prize-winner Robert Stone called "simply the best book in print to examine the strategies and necessities involved in the making of a novel."" "In How Fiction Works, Hall has expanded and deepened his instruction, adding exercises and new examples as well as advice on all forms of fiction, including short stories, short-short stories and novels. He covers every fictive technique, from plot and characterization to word choice, voice and style." "The key to Hall's teaching method is his brilliant use of examples. Throughout the book, he emphasizes the importance of reading and evaluating fiction with an eye toward craft. To this end, he offers more than one hundred excerpts from literature, illustrating through analysis and advice how fiction works."--BOOK JACKET
Separations by Oakley M Hall( Book )
3 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 335 libraries worldwide
The Grand Canyon country of the 1880s is the setting of Oakley Hall's compelling new novel. As the plot unfolds, the West of the late nineteenth century is displayed in all its vastness and complexity. Hall carries us from the wild, perilous depths of the Canyon to the drawing rooms of San Francisco, from the desolate Mormon settlements and Indian camps of the Southwest to the haciendas of Old California. And he reveals once again his consummate power as a storyteller as he brings to life the fierce conflicts of the day - between rapacious mining and railroad barons eager to exploit the riches of the West and those who would preserve its beauty pristine; between Mormons and Gentiles; between land-hungry whites and beleaguered Indians; between men and the women they would love, and use. And the fiercest conflict of all - between man and nature

When Colonel Studely brings his world-famous Wild West Show to town, he gets more than just a warm welcome. As the parade makes its way down Market Street, the colonel is shot dead. With clues and sinister motives--a trail of seduction, a vengeful train robber, a haze of opium--emerging from every direction, Bierce is stymied, but pierces the fog to reveal the true culprit.
