Or something.

I dunno. Whateves.

I’m sitting here in my office staring out at the bright, frigid January day and can’t help but wonder:

Where do I go from here?

The answer, my friends, is I go full Freak mode. I mean, I’ve done it before.

<cough, cough>  https://kylerader.net/short-stories/only-the-names-have-been-changed/

 

So, along those lines, I am here to announce my triumphant return to the world of the subversive, the transgressive, the weird, the darkly comic.

The BIZARRO!

Me am so sad!!

No, not THAT Bizarro.

I’m talking letting the inner freak Kile out. The one that people made fun of my entire life. The one that the girls in high school wouldn’t take seriously or give me the time of day. The one that the women in college wouldn’t take seriously or give me the time of day. The one that the women in my adulthood wouldn’t take seriously or give me the time of day.

Right. Sorry.

I find writing bizarro/transgressive/subversive fiction to be incredibly liberating. Nothing is taboo. Nothing is out of bounds. Anything is possible. If I want to write a story about a talking squid who has to find the true meaning of Thanksgiving by learning how to parallel park, then I can write it! And write it with confidence and pride!

(Note to self: Write talking squid saves thanksgiving short story)

And thus, I give you ‘Peel’

It’s a story of love and loss, of obsession and its ruinous nature, of Furries and bacterial infection.

Interested?

Of course you are.
