Bewildering Stories welcomes...

Chris Ward

Chris is from the U.K. but is teaching English in Japan. He’s had stories published or accepted by several webzines.

“A Thousand Lives of Flies” is a parody of the doctrine of reincarnation, but it is far less humor than straight-ahead realism. It poses some interesting questions, such as: how do we know — rather than assume — that animals are not self-aware? How can we think about animals without anthropomorphizing them? Why does anyone deserve to be incarnated as a fly? Or as a human being, for that matter...

Chris Ward’s bio sketch can be found here.

Welcome to Bewildering Stories, Chris. We hope to hear from you again soon and often!
