Momentary Illumination of Objects In Motion is the debut short story collection by Jason Arias that explores the topics of life and death, race and identity, change and resistance to change. They are stories of growth, both in the moment and over a lifetime.

Manifesto as well as other online and literary publications. To find more of Jason’s writing, visit JasonAriasAuthor.com.
There Is No Other Way to Worship Them is an eerie, mesmerizing collection of nine interwoven short stories set in Mexico and Texas. Characters and landscapes slip from one story to the next as they explore themes of violence, mysticism and failures in the pursuit of love.
