It came from Rhoads Brazos

Rhoads Brazos’s story “… and now He erases” was published in Metaphorosis on Friday, 15 January 2016. With “and now He erases . . .” I was striving for the ultimate apocalypse, one in which the whole world quite literally crumbles away. It turned out to be a rather bittersweet tale, though still amusing in small parts. The aforementioned “He” is never named, and his demise isn’t explained. The main character, clearly Evel Knievel, isn’t …

A question for Matt Thompson

Q: What was your favorite children’s book?

A: Clearly there are too many to choose just one. If pushed, though, I’ll go for ‘The Truck On The Track’ by Janet Burroway, wherein a fantastical circus troupe attempt to free their vehicle before it’s mown down by a train. Inevitably, they fail. The final orgy of destruction was always my favourite part as a child. The story has the quality of the best children’s (or adult) fiction, in that it’s entirely deranged; the cumulative rhyming form just adds to the weirdness. And there’s a yak involved. Tragically it seems to be out of print nowadays.

It came from Mari Ness

Mari Ness’s story “Cat Play” was published in Metaphorosis on Friday, 8 January 2016. I don’t really remember much about the actual writing of this story, but I suspect that I wrote it in part because although one of the cats that I live with seems convinced that I too am a cat, just a rather overlarge and clumsy one. (The other cat is well aware that I am a deeply inferior creature who can …
