Bewildering Stories welcomes...
John Brady has retired after twelve years as an attorney and now reads and writes several short stories and is starting his second novel. He prefers to think of his stories more as edgy Twilight Zone than as horror. He participates in “a new publishing company that is working to tilt the balance of power in the publishing industry [...] back into the hands of the writers.”
The publishing enterprise, one might muse, is new indeed. It raises an interesting question: When has publishing ever been “in the hands of the writers”? If an ancient source is accurate, only about five percent of Sophocles’ works have survived over two millennia. We might like to hear from Sophocles about that, for starters...
“Oh, the Things You Will See...” might lull the reader into a certain complacency by seeming to begin in the mode of contemrporary social realism. But when the department store clerk finds what he takes to be a real tiger in the Toys department, we know we’re in the magical symbolism of a modern fable.
John Brady’s bio sketch can be found here.
Welcome to Bewildering Stories, John. We hope to hear from you again soon and often!
