You may know me only as the delightfully mysterious man behind the gas mask, but there is more to me. I have a mouth, for example. I also write short stories, and this month Pure Slush is featuring my story "At the Deathbed of William Fear: the Wife, the Priest, the Lover and a Dog" in five parts. A big thanks to Matt Potter! Today, the first and second installments live now. If you are so inclined, please stop by and give this darkly humorous tale a read.
And also also, my book Conversations with S. Teri O'Type (a Satire) turned one year old this week. You can help me celebrate by, well, buying the book. Or a car. Oh! Or a castle!
I'm traveling back to Germany tomorrow morning after having spent almost two weeks in the States. Wish me safe travels please.
I must be off,
