Crossing Colfax: Short Stories Crossing Colfaxby Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers: “A Full Moon Over a Desolate Plain”

Playboy Magazine once called Colfax Avenue “the longest, wickedest street in America.” A hundred years ago, it was the main road into and out of Denver, Colorado. East Colfax was the address to have for many of the city’s elite, and West Colfax was a trail that led to the mountains and dreams of Gold Rush riches. A 105-acre tuberculosis sanatorium for the poor once fronted the street – the Golden Hill Cemetery still houses many of the White Plague’s victims.

We invite you to explore Colfax Avenue – its past, present, and future. Its greatest moments, real or imaginary, and its darkest secrets. Tales of romance, action, fantasy and more – Colfax has seen it all.

Fiction River: No Humans Allowed (Fiction River: An Original Anthology Magazine) (Volume 22): “Sheath Hopes”
