25 Best Short Story Collections of 2014 in Electric Literature
Ross pawed at his face and sobbed, “My girls,” for his wife, Bren, and their three daughters, who were sure to have called the police by now, who’d no doubt sent search parties, search boats, search planes. Which made it even more frustrating that the men were still lost, drifting, alone.

Nature by Diane Cook in Electric Literature, a collection included in Electric Lit's "25 Best Short Story Collections of 2014"
