About the Author

Chloe N. Clark is the author of the short story collection Collective Gravities, an NPR pick for Best Books of 2020, as well as the poetry collections Escaping the Body, Your Strange Fortune, and more. She is a founding co-editor-in-chief of the literary journal Cotton Xenomorph.


"Chloe Clark's stories are
compact marvels of miniaturized mystery, something like what I imagine you
might get if you stranded Steven Millhauser in interstellar space. Patterns
of Orbit
is a smart, moving collection, one that might permanently
expand what you imagine possible, leaving you searching out fresh wonder
everywhere you go." --Matt Bell, author of Appleseed

"Chloe Clark is one of my
favorite writers. Somehow she manages, in story after story, to capture--with
perfect clarity and precision--the mystery and wonder and heartbreak of
existence. And really, that's all I ever want." --Ben Loory, author of Tales of
Falling and Flying

"From interstellar travel
to cities of the dead, Clark masterfully constructs constellations of memory,
hope, and wonder. These genredefying stories will make you look up at the sky
and deep into your soul." --Sequoia Nagamatsu, National Bestselling
author of How High We Go in the Dark

"This is a landmark collection. I would recommend it to anyone
who likes short fiction, regardless of genre." --Supernatural Tales, (Jan. 18, 2023)

"In Patterns of Orbit: Stories Chloe N Clark
"accomplishes in a few pages what others can't pull off in a hundred." --TNBBC's The Next Best Book Blog (Feb. 5, 2023)

"Simply transcendent across all galaxies, Patterns
of Orbit
is a must-read for fans of Ted Chiang." --Allison
Cho, Booklist (March/April 2023)

"Patterns of Orbit gathers well-crafted stories that move through the darkness of space,
delivering interstellar insights about searching for lost loved ones. They are
about what's uncanny in the universe and about humanity's unknowability, isolation,
and existence." --Elaine
Chiew, Foreword Reviews (March/April 2023)
