His books include, in the order of their publication: Waltz in Marathon, Crows, With or Without (a short story collection), The Widows\ Adventures, Rumor Has It, and A Shortcut in Time. His short fiction and non-fiction pieces have appeared in Atlantic Monthly, Esquire, The New Yorker, and a variety of literary magazines and newspapers. Dickinson is also an editor at the Chicago Tribune. A Shortcut in Time “Readers of all persuasions will welcome the quiet metaphysics of A Shortcut in Time. With its precise cadences and poetic observations, Charles Dickinson’s novel is like a wondrous old pendulum clock you acquired from an antiques dealer after discovering to your delight that it still kept perfect time.” --James Morrow The Widows’ Adventures
