You can read a recent short story of mine here. The story started as a dream script that I would present to Jan Svankmajer, one of my favorite directors. In a way, my attempt was to give an interior monologue to a puppet or character in a stop-motion film. Much of Svankmajer’s work has no dialogue, so I wanted to create that while having the flavor of his surrealist imagery.
Thanks to Project for a New Mythology for publishing the story. And big thanks to J. Quinn Malott, the editor. He writes a thoughtful blog, usually on topics literary. It’s here.
I like red peppers and Jan Švankmajer movies.
