Max Christopher

Max lives in Massachusetts, where he works as a waiter and sells funeral insurance. After two marriages, he has three children and is a grandfather.

The 101 Domitians” makes a playful pun on the film title The 101 Dalmatians. The “Domitians,” however, are a kind of symbolic vision experienced by Carl, who sees Domitian as a dispossessed emperor who might have had a better reign had he not been betrayed by those closest to him. The symbolism begins makes sense when Carl’s ex-wife, Juanita, tries to deprive Carl of weekend custody of their son, Peter.

Readers will eagerly follow Carl’s and Juanita’s crisp, acerbic dialogue and turn the pages to find what will come of Carol’s and Miriam’s helpful interventions. The story is a model of a modern tragi-comedy in the mode of magic realism.

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